TechCrunch reports that Quepasa and myYearbook, the New Hope-based social network it merged with last year, will rebrand itself as MeetMe sometime this summer.
myYearbook started out as a social working site for high schoolers, and even though it evolved into more of a social discovery service -- one that’s increasingly mobile -- the name still reflected its early roots. Meanwhile, Quepasa, which tries to do something similar for a Latin American audience, has a name suggesting a regional social network.
