Like.com is also advertising-free, so you don't have to deal with the harrassing advertisements from Google or Yahoo. Before Like.com, there was Riya, whose main customers (approximately 95%) were men. In contrast, Like.com generally targets women between the ages of 20-30 years old. Like.com has been incredibly successful and is continuing to succeed.
