::iimageright(“SexyInsurance.jpg”,”Sexy Insurance”):: You may think I am joking, but I am not. Sexy Insurance! bills itself as the world’s first international social networking site for the sexiest industry on the planet! I think it was the marketing department and not the actuaries who came up with that last statement.
The site is designed to help folks in the insurance industry to meet up, swap war stories, network for jobs, and whatever else it is people do on social networking sites like Facebook and MySpace. It officially opened on January 11th and when I checked there are 170 members. Still a ways to go before they catch up with Facebook’s or MySpace’s 10s of millions.
Business Week magazine has a nice write up with some quotes from the site designers defending the ‘sexy’ designation.
