PrincetonScoop was founded by Melissa Klepacki, a Princeton-area transplant who just got plain tired of reading about cool things going on in town after they had happened. Melissa is an "early adopter" of technology and is consumed by Twitter, Facebook, and all things Social Media. Thus, PrincetonScoop was born. Melissa's brainchild is the marriage of this social media passion combined with a cultivated knowledge of upcoming local events, happenings, deals, and steals in the Princeton area and beyond. Dedicated to bringing Social Media to even the most technology-terrified, PrincetonScoop now is the leading Social Media Web site in the Princeton area.
