Earlier this week, I had the priviledge of being invited to attend a boat cruise to help introduce Wantsa to the local social media scene. They’ve been pretty quiet about what Wantsa’s all about and then they went and hired my friend, Colleen Coplick who has the awesome title of ‘Professional Loudmouth’ for Wantsa. She’s not the quiet type and knows how to throw a party. In this case, it was on a boat:

The Wantsa Engine is an application found within social networks that lets you and your friends exchange recommendations on trusted businesses, services and organizations. In return, you enjoy exclusive discounts and incentives from a valuable network of recommended companies. Even better, every time you engage with a business or organization, we’ll make a donation to the cause of your choice.
A pretty amazing way to spend a beautiful evening on the West Coast that won’t soon be topped in my books. Congratulations to the Wantsa team on an epic preview to the local scene. I’m looking forward to seeing what they’re cooking up.
