AUGUST 11 – TubeCrush on the BEEB!
You may be one of our new fans reading this because of our recent appearance on the BBC technology website. On Thursday 25th August 2011, we made the news by coming the top read artice on the page for a piece that we did with reporter Matthew Cooke highlighting how TubeCrush.net has become a ‘Worldwide Phenomenon’. The piece discussed how people often see others they find attractive on the tube and how technology now plays a role in how people connect with one another. One of the guys snapped for the site Adam Moger talked about how he found out he was featured on TubeCrush some 3 days after being photographed and how he felt about being published online.
Matthew also interviewed some members of the public to find out their opinions on TubeCrush.net and being photographed and appearing on a website, the man in the video said ”Go for it!” adding ”I wouldnt have a problem if it was me being photographed, Its a bit of fun really“. The piece raised issues on privacy and the consequence of the social networking revolution, highlighting the fact that websites such as Facebook, Twitter and many others publish photographs of people without their knowledge on a daily basis. As we have always stated here at TubeCrush we celebrate the attractiveness of men on the London Underground so would never write commentry that would offend or point fun at them, and should anyone feel that they would prefer to not be featured they can always request their photograph be removed.
If you didnt get a chance to read the piece then follow the link here http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-14650757 and share it with your friends.
Tubecrush came above the story about the resignation of Steve Jobs from Apple in the most read technology news on the BBC on the 25th August 2011!!

JUNE 11 – Our Favourite Loose Women
The lovely Loose Women ladies gave us a special mention at the Clapham street party on Saturday 25th June, whilst we were there raising money for GMFA. After discussing TubeCrush on ITV’s Loose Women show back in April, Carol and Sherrie gave us a special mention at the south London street party last week.
TubeCrush was a topical discussion on the show back on Tuesday 19th of April where they discussed whether we were sexist or sexy fun. The debate lasted for a whole segment of the show, with one of the guys featured on the site getting in contact with the ladies to say since appearing on TubeCrush he had become a bit of a blogging celebrity and got a modelling job!
On Saturday Carol and Sherrie joined in the festivities and hosted an auction with varying prizes including a trip around the Loose Women studios!
We took a few photographs (thats what we do best after-all!) so take a look. If you would like to donate money to GMFA which is a great London charity then you can visit their virgin giving page.
