Social networker Redux has raised a $6.5 million second round from DFJ and past backer Alsop Louie according to peHUB. The company previously raised $1.65 million from Alsop Louie and investor Peter Thiel, for a total raise of $7.1 million. The service isn’t yet live, but the company says it will offer a new site for meeting people based on its own algorithm that matches users’ interests. Basically, it sounds like eHarmony, though not limited to marriage. The founders of the Berkeley, CA-based start-up were previously at Fotodunk, which was acquired by iLike. Chairman Darian Shirazi was also an early Facebook employee.
