Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9962012A1] An electronic communications system for use by system users who interact with the system has a profiling system for creating separate profiles for each of the system users based on the monitoring of a number of interactions which each user has with the communications system. A number of system user profiles are created, and each profile indicates at least one interest for the system user with which it is associated. The communications system also has a virtual chamber of commerce which has a match-discovering system to actively search for matched groups of system user profiles. All the profiles in a matched group have at least one interest in common. The communications system also has a match-making system to actively create communication links between system users whose profiles form part of a matched group.
