Imagine a social networking site that allows you to meet new people... in 3D avatar form. Well, that's what Berlin-based company Smeet has been on a mission to do since 2007, and so far - it's doing pretty well for itself. The free-browser based platform has attracted 15 million users worldwide and is growing at a rate of 40,000 new registrations a day.
VillageTV caught up with CEO and co-founder Sebastian Funke to explore the realms of Smeet; where users build 3D mansions, buy fantasy pets, and engage with one another through games, parties, and other virtual hangouts.
