Fellody is a social networking application that connects users to potential love matches based on their musical tastes. Users establish a Fellody profile by providing some pertinent information about themselves (i.e. name, location, gender, what gender they are into, etc.). From there users can either load a client to their iTunes or Windows Media Player application or they can sync their Last.FM account to the application in order to determine what music the user is into. Afterwards, users can review their matches, browse through other Fellody users. Users can also establish friends (called "Groupies") to stay connected and engaged in the Fellody community. Through a Premium Fellody account, users can see who has looked at their profile, they can send messages to people they are interested in, and they can improve their Fellody ranking so that their profile is spotlighted in a better light and shows up on more matches. Fellody is the perfect marriage between music enthusiasts and a dating network. Instead of dating someone where musical tastes are incompatible, Fellody makes it so people can at least agree on what's playing on the radio if nothing else.Show more screenshots »
Fellody is a Swiss company based out of Zurich. Fellody was developed by two people names Robin and Tom. They both love music, and agreed it was easier to find like-minded friends and potentially dating partners based off of musical tastes. So, Fellody was established. Fellody has been featured on Smashing Magazine, Killer Startups WWWhatsNews.com and a number of other media outlets.
Fellody is sort of like a dating site, but they don't try to force matches down anyone's throat. Instead they have made a community where loving and discussing music comes first, and (hopefully) connections shortly follow. If a user uploads a photo of themselves to Fellody, they just might spot themselves on Fellody's homepage in background mosaic of many of Fellody's users.
Fellody is a bit labor intensive to get setup. Users need to provide a bit of information just to get registered. Then they either need to user Last.FM or install a client that will sync to their iTunes or Windows Media Player to generate potential dating matches based on the user's musical taste. However, once established Fellody appears to be quite simple to use and singles could spend a lot of time browsing through the Fellody matches, sending messages and flirting with others on the Fellody community. The background which is a mosaic of Fellody users is very creative. Overall the site is fast, responsive and well designed.
Fellody is free to use. There is a Premium plan on Fellody, however as of March 2, 2012, all users were able to access the Fellody Premium features (such as unlimited messaging, seeing who has visited their profile and sending unlimited flirts) "for a limited time." The cost of the Premium plan on Fellody is not available at this time either.
Fellody is ideal for anyone who is passionate about music and who tends to find their best friends by ways of like-minded musical conversations. Perhaps one's circle of best friends was met at a concert or while trolling through a certain music genre's aisle at the record store. Anyway, Fellody feels that if two people can agree on music then they stand a better shot at being compatible in the long run. Fellody is part social community, part dating site and all musically centered.
