The privately held company was founded in 1999 by Sam Feuer.
MindSmack’s founder has this to say about the name, "My cousin Jamey and I were brainstorming firecracker words that we loved and were powerful. He put those 2 words together and I was blown away. The rest is web history."According to Feuer, the secret to their company's success is "insanely high standards including less than one minute to respond to customer service requests."

MindSmack has launched a new niche social network called Smacktive.
