Thanks to USA Today for featuring Fork in its tech section on Friday. As you might imagine, the number downloads and active users jumped dramatically. It’s great to see our app gaining so much traction so soon after launching.
Interestingly, the editors changed the headline midway through the day on Friday. What started as “Fork app focuses on community of home chefs” became “Fork app lets you guiltlessly post ‘food porn.’” I wonder who the “porn” term was meant to attract: readers or search bots? Regardless, you can see the story here.
USA Today picked up a story that was originally published by Ozy Media, a new site based in the Bay Area that has an A-list array of financial backers, including Steve Jobs’ widow. They seem to be taking a different approach and, so far, I like what I see. Check it out when you get a chance: www.ozy.com.
And if you have an iOS device and get a moment to download and try Fork, I would love to get your feedback.
