Fobango is a fun and easy way to navigate through the best values and selections on goods that turn a house into a home. Join the social shopping revolution and build your nest for less!
Excuse me, did someone say social and shopping?  As in, shopping  socially?  Sign me up!  I can share my thoughts, and opinions, and photos?  Yes, pleaseandthankyouverymuch!

Fobango is a social shopping experience designed for today’s digital people.  Share photos, write reviews and talk with furniture and home decor enthusiast. You can shop with your friends or even make new friends. Saving was never more fun!” There are all kinds of activities on Fobango that you can use  through a unique profile like photo sharing, community forums, Fobango blogs and guest blogger posts, user reviews, etc.  Reviews.  Let others hear what you have to say.  I like to share my feelings, as if you didn’t know! 

It isn’t like we don’t use social media already for shopping- how many times have you or I shared a deal, or asked someone’s opinion on Twitter, email, or Facebook (or texting?)  Fobango is just formalizing it and making it sort of official.

Fobango is a furniture and home goods shopping site that helps customers save by shipping directly from the manufacturer. We will contact people who sign up and let them know when the site is ready for the beta users. They are tentatively scheduled for a public launch of the site around the end of September provided there are no delays. The winner of the sofa giveaway will be announced the day of the public launch (So be aware it may be a month or so until the winner is announced).

About the giveaway

Find out how to win a free sofa! The giveaway will be announced the day of the public launch (again, currently projected to take place at the end of September). The couch in the picture is the sofa that is being given away ( A dark brown vinyl sofa with track arms. Dimensions: 85.75″L x 32.25″W x 35″H). There are no fees associated with the giveaway.

How it works: Sign-ups are given a unique URL that acts as a referring link. Every time someone signs up via the link, the original user is given points towards winning the couch. The person with the most referring sign-ups will win the couch. This means that the more someone distributes their link the higher their chances. Tweet the link, ad it your FB wall, comment on blogs with it, write a blog post including the link, comment on forums with it and email all your friends and family to enlist them in helping you win the sofa. 

Keep up with the latest and greatest about Fobango on Facebook and Twitter!

Some information about the Beta: People who sign up will be invited during the beta period to interact and shop on the site. This period ( which will last until the public launch in September) is designed specifically to help Fobango put the finishing touches on their website, identify any bugs in the site, streamline the user experience and test social features that are being built into the site. They want  user participation and feedback. There will be a further contest taking place during the beta for the beta community ONLY: A photo sharing contest with a prize revealed upon entering the site as a beta member. This contest will be also be quite simple and will help understand how some of the Fobango social features will work. 

Who’s ready to check out Fobango?  And who will win the couch?  I would love to win a big prize like that but given that I’m writing this post, I’m not eligible.  But that means one less person to compete against for YOU!
