Draugiem is a social networking website launched in 2004. It is the largest social networking website in Latvia with approx. 2.6 million registered users.[2] The website plays an important role in the everyday life of internet users in Latvia, and is frequently used as a communication tool instead of e-mail.

The Draugiem social network operates under the Draugiem Group, an umbrella organisation that is home to many IT related companies, which have developed under the wings of the social network.[3]


The Draugiem.lv social network was founded by Lauris Liberts and Agris Tamanis on March 24, 2004. By spring 2007, the social network had reached 1 000 000 users. The social network has since expanded to create several startups under its wings, becoming The Draugiem Group.
