Keen Psychics Review: History and More
Keen Psychics (Keen.com) is probably the largest psychic network in the world, which established in 1999 and the company raised about $109 million at that time, an era of Internet Bulb. Of course, it was not a psychic network at that time, but a Live Answer Community instead, where people get answers to their questions over the phone. It ever announced that its revenue and revenue growth surpassed Internet giants Amazon.com, eBay and Yahoo! in 2000.
In 2002, Karl Jacob, the chief executive of Keen Inc., was ousted by the board, a new executive came in and changed the name to Ingenio. The Ingenio technology platform, which enables commerce-based information exchange, now “powers” the Keen website (www.keen.com) and voice portal (1-800-ASK-KEEN). In 2006 the company launched Ether, a service that allows people to charge people for calls.
In 2007, AT&T announced to acquire privately held Ingenio, and planed to integrate Ingenio’s Pay Per Call solutions into its directory service and local search advertising portfolio, including the YELLOWPAGES.COM Network, AT&T Real Yellow Pages and 1-800-Yellow Pages.
The above is a brief history of Keen.com.
