MeetMe, Inc. (NASDAQ: MEET) reaffirmed its commitment to industry leading user safety for its more than five million monthly active users.

MeetMe makes user safety a top priority, devoting approximately 40% of its entire workforce to regulating the content of its apps and website. MeetMe employs a variety of human and technological filters to monitor content, including a real-time human review of every newly posted image. MeetMe has also developed a proprietary textual-monitoring threat detection system that programmatically detects possible safety issues and alerts its safety team of potential abuses.

MeetMe has a zero-tolerance policy for abusive behavior among its users and encourages its members to report abuse, with a simple, one-click reporting feature. MeetMe removes more than 1,000 user profiles per day as part of its content review process. MeetMe also provides its users with various privacy-setting options that allow them to manage who can see their profile and make contact with them. MeetMe also allows its users to block specific profiles entirely.

As part of its safety commitment, MeetMe promptly and proactively reports instances of abusive behavior and inappropriate content posting to the proper authorities. In addition, MeetMe promptly and proactively reports potential safety issues (such as self-harm or potential suicidal behavior) to local authorities.

MeetMe screens each new daily registrant against databases of known sex offenders in the United States and regularly screens all active users against these same lists, blocking registrations and activity from known sex offenders. MeetMe has a proprietary age bracketing system to prevent adults from communicating with and viewing the profiles of minors (and vice versa).

MeetMe has taken numerous steps to educate its users – particularly minors – about the dangers of online activity, and in particular, the potential dangers of meeting a stranger in person. MeetMe prominently displays safety messages to every new user of its mobile apps. MeetMe never pinpoints users on a map, or gives their exact locations.

MeetMe created and operates, an educational resource for online awareness.
