The world’s fastest growing social dating network, Zoosk today announced a bushel of new funding – to the tune of $30 million. VentureBeat reports that the latest round was led by new Bessemer Venture Partners, but existing investors Canaan Partners and ATA Ventures also participated. David Cowan, a partner at Bessemer, will join Zoosk’s board.
Zoosk seamlessly integrates with the most popular social networking sites including Facebook, MySpace, Bebo, and Hi5, to provide a one-stop shop for singles to search and interact. The company says over 8 million users log into the Zoosk Facebook app each month, and since its December 2007 launch, Zoosk has garnered more than 40 million users from 40 countries. (That’s 12 million active monthly users.)
Zoosk plans to use the new funds for global expansion, new marketing activities, and new features and apps.
