Company description

Hop-In (www.hop-in.us) : This is a website for fun and games. While Zynga is focussed on online games primarily, our website covers all activities, indoor or outdoor, sports or otherwise. Activities could be like golf, shopping, movies, card games, bowling, etc, just to name a few. A user can post his/her activity of interest and look for partners seeking the same, either in their social circle (friends) or the general public. For example, I can post that I would like to go Fishing or Bowling in the zip code 78664 and look for someone to do this with. We can then plan and schedule it online. Another interesting feature provided is the ability to invite friends or the general public  in "real time" to join the user for an activity(a restaurant perhaps). Users can do this by checking in to the restaurant and seeing if there are others available to 'hop in".  Users are given the ability to control their visibility online.
 
In other words , it's like I am doing "this activity", would you like to Hop-In? . "This activity" can be anything like playing Golf,Hunting,Dinner at Chilis etc etc and can be shared with with social circle (social networking friends / followers and general public).
