Social News Aggregator Nuzzel Raises $1.7M From Lowercase, Homebrew, And Others


Nuzzel, the social news startup led by Friendster founder Jonathan Abrams, says it has raised $1.7 million in new funding.

The news follows the launch of the Nuzzel iPhone app a month ago. Abrams told me via email that the company had only spent about half of its original seed funding (which also totaled $1.7 million), but there was “additional investment interest from some really interesting folks,” so he decided to raise a second seed round.
