Is Keen.com Revolutionizing the Phone Industry or Just Phone Sex?
from the phone-sex-online dept
A few people I know have gone to work for Keen.com. Every time someone decides to take a job there, we get into the "wow, so you're going to work for a phone sex company" discussion (which they don't always appreciate). Keen.com positions themselves as "revolutionizing the telephone", but it seems more and more like they are just revolutionizing the 1-900 phone number business. For this they've raised nearly $70 million? It seems a bit too much. The fact is that I really have no desire to randomly call some stranger for a fee. Maybe I'm missing something about the service (other than that they have perhaps the most annoying television commercials I've ever seen - that literally make me change the channel to get away from them). I would be interested to see why fans of Keen like it so much. Feel free to tell me what I'm missing.
