freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “SAN DIEGO, Calif., July 23 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Podclass, Inc. announces that their new web services technology that interfaces with Moodle, the leading open-source learning management software system, built on Facebook Platform has been awarded a grant through Facebook's fbFund. (VIDEO - VNR)”



A R T I C L E:

SAN DIEGO, Calif., July 23 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Podclass, Inc. announces that their new web services technology that interfaces with Moodle, the leading open-source learning management software system, built on Facebook Platform has been awarded a grant through Facebook's fbFund.

PodclassThe announcement was made today at f8, Facebook's annual developers' conference, and helps deliver on Facebook's mission to give people the power to share and make the world more open and connected.

In an effort to grow the Facebook ecosystem, fbFund was introduced last year to provide resources to developers by eliminating some of the challenges of starting a company. Through fbFund, Facebook hopes to encourage entrepreneurs to build compelling businesses on Facebook Platform.

There were more than 1,000 applications submitted, but only 10 applicants were provided with grants.

"We are very excited to be one of ten companies to receive this grant," Gary Gil, founder, Podclass, Inc. says. "We are confident that our Podclass application will only serve to enhance the user experience."

With over 90 million active users, Facebook is the fourth-most trafficked web site in the world. So, why not include an application that millions of users can use within Facebook to access their educational classes on line?

The fbFund winning applications were evaluated based on the following criteria: originality of concept - does the application introduce an idea in an unexplored area?; target market - is the application targeted to key cohorts and does it meet compelling needs?; social/useful - does it deliver real value to users?; expressive - does it allow people to share more information?; intuitive - is it compelling and easy to use?; potential - can it be a real business someday?; and team - can the team execute to succeed?

In 2007, Facebook launched Facebook Platform, a development platform that enables developers and entrepreneurs to integrate with Facebook and create meaningful social experiences for millions of users. Facebook provides unparalleled potential for applications and the opportunity to build a business that is highly relevant to people's lives.

Online Dating CEO Marries Customer

Author: Mobeze, Inc.
Dateline: Tue, 01 Apr 2008

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “SAN DIEGO, Calif., April 1 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- In a stunningly ironic twist, OnlineBootyCall.com Founder and CEO has married one of his own customers. In a private Vegas wedding, Moses (Mo) Brown married Heather Rivers (Username: WantNLovN), a 24-year-old fashion designer from New York. Online Booty Call is a unit of Mobeze, Inc.”

SAN DIEGO, Calif., April 1 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- In a stunningly ironic twist, OnlineBootyCall.com Founder and CEO has married one of his own customers. In a private Vegas wedding, Moses (Mo) Brown married Heather Rivers (Username: WantNLovN), a 24-year-old fashion designer from New York. Online Booty Call is a unit of Mobeze, Inc.

Caption: OnlineBootyCall CEO Moses Brown married website member Heather Rivers in a private Vegas WeddingOn a traditional dating site like eHarmony(R), such an event would be championed as a testament to the community's romantic strength. Yet, at Online Booty Call (OBC), it has quite the opposite effect. Members of OBC actually enjoy being single and believe the adventure of dating doesn't have to be based on the pretense of long-term commitment. So the idea of the CEO attending to the domestics of married life will have a chilling impact on this community of Next Gen daters. It's all very reminiscent of Hugh Hefner's similar marriage attempt in 1989.

Brown, with a sparkle in his eye, describes the beginning of their newfound eternal love, "So there I was thinking, man for sure this profile is fake, she's the most gorgeous woman I've ever seen. But, after some investigation, and a bit of 'Google stalking,' I discovered she was the real deal. It's awesome; I'm ready to cash in all my chips, and leave it all behind for our life together as one!"

OBC employees worry Brown will make good on his plan to "change the name of the site and gear it towards a guaranteed marriage service... because my wife and I want everyone to be as happy as we are." In response, a senior programmer responded, "Hell, his ship is going down and the fool didn't even get a prenup!"

We're predicting a widespread "WTF... Married, seriously?" response from OBC members. As the man who created the "patented" Booty Call Commandments (second commandment "Thou shouldest never ask: can we see each other from now on?") will be ending his Playboy lifestyle, literally, as Brown does party at the Mansion.

About Online Booty Call
OnlineBootyCall.com is an online dating community for singles who enjoy being single. The site's lighthearted approach to dating allows its members to combine all the benefits of dating with the excitement of maintaining the single life. With millions of registered members throughout the U.S., U.K., Canada, and Australia, OBC makes millions of personal connections every week. OBC is an interactive and fun dating site where "you don't have to promise marriage just to get a date!"

Metrofunk.com Launches into Public Beta

Author: Metrofunk
Dateline: Wed, 19 Mar 2008

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “NEW YORK, N.Y., March 19 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Metrofunk, the first online social network devoted to nightlife, fashion, film, and music announced today that Metrofunk.com has officially launched into public beta. All the content of the site will now be freely available for public viewing when non-members go to the site.”



A R T I C L E:

NEW YORK, N.Y., March 19 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Metrofunk, the first online social network devoted to nightlife, fashion, film, and music announced today that www.Metrofunk.com has officially launched into public beta. All the content of the site will now be freely available for public viewing when non-members go to the site.

Caption: MetrofunkNow non-members can check out exclusive events that are happening in the area as well as browse through premium videos, articles, galleries, and music from the creative worlds of fashion, music, and film. However, to preserve the exclusivity of the site and maintain the integrity of its users, membership to the Metrofunk.com community will remain invite-only. This move will allow Metrofunk.com to continue to operate as an invite-only site but also give its trendsetters a focused channel to expose their creative works and events.

The site operates quite differently from other niche social networking sites on the internet in the sense that Metrofunk.com is not so much a social network, but more a network of independent social networks. Each individual network is run by a trendsetter with a specific creative mission. Trendsetters on Metrofunk.com all have their own branded social networks with ownership and influence over members within their network.

A user becomes part of Metrofunk.com's community only when they are invited by an existing trendsetter on the site. Trendsetters are greatly incentivized to build a strong network as that will help increase the popularity and support of their creative works. Additionally, if a non-member is viewing the site and sees content that they like, they can immediately submit an "invite request" to the specific trendsetter and request to be part of their network.

When asked how opening up will affect the site, Co-Founder and CTO Adam Helfgott responds, "With all the attention we've been getting, we're expecting quite a significant surge in traffic. However, Elastra, the infrastructure scaling solution that we have in place will allow us to effectively leverage Amazon's EC2 and S3 technology to scale quickly and cost effectively without having an impact on our web services."

Metrofunk.com has also begun partnership discussions with established organizations within the nightlife, fashion, film, and music industries. The company has recently secured a partnership with IMG's FashionWeekDaily.com. Metrofunk.com will provide IMG's online fashion publication with a community and content distribution platform for their users and subscribers.

Metrofunk.com's red carpet launch party back in November, which was hosted and attended by such celebrity figures as John Mayer, Ashlee Simpson, Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz, Gym Class Heroes Travis McCoy, and dozens of other prominent industry figures, received quite an overwhelming response from both the press and the public. So overwhelming that the online company decided to expand the network offline and launch Club Metrofunk. The celebration of the Metrofunk.com's public launch will be held tonight at Club Metrofunk (532 W 27th Street, New York, New York). Club Metrofunk will be open every Wednesday thereafter to provide an offline place for its members to network and expose their creative works.

About Metrofunk
Metrofunk.com is an invite-only social and mobile network specifically designed to attract and empower trendsetters around the world in the lifestyle industries of nightlife events, fashion, film, and music. Metrofunk.com's primary focus is to help facilitate creativity, foster openness, and become a useful marketing tool. This allows the mundane process of getting a message into public awareness to be simple and easy, thus allowing more energy and focus on the work itself. That's the overall idea.

Metrofunk’s Red Carpet Launch Party at Stereo

Metrofunk.com, a site devoted entirely to the genres of nightlife, fashion, music, and film will provide a centralized place for people to gather information on what is hot and trendy in the genres of their interest.”

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Nov. 15 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Metrofunk announced today that their invite-only social network built by trendsetters, Metrofunk.com, has officially launched. Metrofunk.com, a site devoted entirely to the genres of nightlife, fashion, music, and film will provide a centralized place for people to gather information on what is hot and trendy in the genres of their interest. This news comes on the heels of their red carpet event last night in conjunction with Stereo's two-year anniversary party where celebrities, industry insiders, and trendsetters alike came together to celebrate the beginning of the Metrofunk movement.

Caption Metrofunk launchIf you drove down 29th street on the west side of Manhattan last night all you would have seen is a bright yellow Lamborghini parked in front of a long red carpet, and a line outside Stereo Nightclub. A line long enough that it really makes one appreciate VIP treatment, exactly what Metrofunk.com gives its users. Various celebrities came out to celebrate occasion with Metrofunk.com and Stereo. Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz and Gym Class Heroes' Travis McCoy took over the DJ booth before Travis took stage with some friends and performed Gym Class Heroes hit "Cupid's Chokehold." Los Angeles rapper Mickey Avalon also performed his hits, "Jane Fonda" and "My Dick" along with his friends and fellow rappers Dirt Nasty and Andre Legacy. Many other stars like Ashlee Simpson, MTV's Damien Fahey, Aaron Reid of MTV'S My Sweet Sixteen, NYC' DJ Jus Ske, Rapper Ray J, Singer Constantine Maroulis and the famous Naked Cowboy were in the crowd. The best part of the night was when John Mayer surprised the crowd and took over the mic and rapped from his table along with Sherrod Small from VH1's Best Week Ever because obviously stars are trendsetters too!

Metrofunk.com CEO Han Kao said, "It's been 3-4 days of no sleep juggling infrastructure and technology issues, press and PR, celebrities, investors, partners, promoters, DJs, models, event staff, and much more. But it was all so very worth it. We had a launch party that was beyond perfection, insane proprietary technology, a tight management team, and an overwhelming amount of support from trendsetters from all around the world. As of today we will begin approving trendsetter requests and allow trendsetters across the nightlife, fashion, film, and music industries to start building their own online social followings."

About Metrofunk.com
Metrofunk.com provides industry trendsetters, such as exclusive club promoters, fashion designers, filmmakers, and music artists, the ability to create and build their own individually branded social networks. These branded networks combined with Metrofunk.com's suite of social media tools allow real trendsetters to effectively promote and monetize all their creative works: exclusive events, fashion collections, films, music albums, photos, blogs, and videos.

In order for other users to view and access the content, they must be invited to the site by an existing network. One might compare Metrofunk.com to the Barneys and Saks Fifth Avenue of social networking. All user-generated content is displayed in a popularity-driven manner and categorized under one of Metrofunk.com's four lifestyle verticals (nightlife, fashion, film, and music). The site is designed so the trendsetting community, not hired editors, decide what's hot and what's not.

Superlife World Service, a New Web Network, Powers Transition to Better World

Author: EraNova Institute
Dateline: Thu, 15 Nov 2007

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “MOUNTAIN LAKES, N.J. - Nov. 15 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Take a deep breath and position your surfboard. A social tsunami is coming. So says Richard W. Samson, founder of Superlife World Service, a web network that makes its debut today. The tsunami, an emerging meta-trend, 'will either swamp us or carry us to a whole new future,' he predicts.

Featured Experts Show Way to Next Level of Mind, Spirit, Health, Science, Business, and Society

MOUNTAIN LAKES, N.J. - Nov. 15 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Take a deep breath and position your surfboard. A social tsunami is coming. So says Richard W. Samson, founder of Superlife World Service, a web network that makes its debut today. The tsunami, an emerging meta-trend, "will either swamp us or carry us to a whole new future," he predicts.

Caption: Superlife founder Dick SamsonThe Superlife site - www.superlife.ws - will help people ride the wave successfully.

What is the meta-trend or over-arching development? "It's the combined force of accelerating developments in consciousness studies, quantum physics, biotechnology, economic theory and other fields," he says. "The big picture is this: We're rapidly entering a hyper-human age of expanded powers and possibilities. Within our lifetimes, we're moving from life to superlife."

Drawing upon today's best thinking, the Superlife site features videos of experts describing tributary surges toward very positive outcomes, "if we see what's coming and make smart choices," Samson says.

The tributary surges are -
    * Supermind: Shifting to a new level of awareness and conscious control.
    * Superspirit: Tapping "the force" (call it God or quantum energy) with scientific clarity and impact.
    * Superhealth: Living to 100-plus in good shape.
    * Superscience: Making planet-saving breakthroughs by adding new scope, objectivity, and focus to research.
    * Superbusiness: Creating universal wealth by turning industry and commerce totally green and globally fair.
    * Supersociety: Taming violence and creating a golden age by making basic necessities and opportunity available to all.
Samson emphasizes that there is an equal chance of disastrous outcomes. "We need to see the tsunami coming so we can ride it."

Featured experts include leaders in medicine, biotechnology, physics, electronics, psychology, sociology, philosophy, religion, business, the arts, community development, and other fields.

Many of the videos are embedded in the site from YouTube and Google Video. "We make the meta-trend clear by aggregating the relevant items all in one place," says Samson. "We also add perspective and action options -- through our articles, forum, and membership roster. Most important, we make the overall synergy visible and accessible."

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Oct. 25 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Metrofunk Corporation announced today that on November 15, 2007 they will launch Metrofunk.com, the world's first invite-only social network devoted entirely to nightlife, fashion, film, and music. Metrofunk.com was created specifically to allow industry trendsetters such as nightclub promoters, fashion designers, music artists, and filmmakers, the ability to create, build, and monetize their individually branded online social networks.

Caption: MetrofunkThe Metrofunk project is a collaborative effort that began two years ago by a team of industry veterans and trendsetters. Amidst a time in the entertainment industry when traditional business structures and practices are incessantly being challenged and tested, Metrofunk offers influencers a leveled playing field to promote and monetize their creative works. The mission is to empower trendsetters around the world by giving them the technology to create and build their own personally branded social networks. These personal social networks will later serve as grassroots distribution channels for their own products. They will also be provided with a suite of social media tools to post and promote all their creative works: events, fashion collections, films, music, photos, blogs, and videos.

All user generated content is displayed in a user-friendly popularity-driven manner and categorized under one of Metrofunk.com's four lifestyle verticals (nightlife, fashion, film, and music). In order for other users to view and access the content, they must be invited to the site by an existing trendsetter network. Once they join, new users immediately become a member of the trendsetter network they were invited by. Only approved trendsetters have the ability to start their own networks.

In the age of mobile communications and social networking, Metrofunk.com brings the online scene to a new level. Metrofunk.com is ideal for users who have graduated from one-size-fits-all social networking sites like MySpace.com and Facebook.com and are looking for a more exclusive network with sexier, trendier, and more sophisticated people. One might compare Metrofunk.com to the Blarneys and Saks Fifth Ave. of social networking. All content on Metrofunk.com is displayed by popularity, similar to how videos are displayed on YouTube.com, and how articles are displayed on Digg.com. The site is designed so the trendsetting community, not hired editors, decide what's hot and what's not.

Metrofunk Co-founder and CEO Han Kao states, "We've worked very hard to give trendsetters like ourselves, big and small, near and far, the opportunity to build their own viral social network of followers, while giving every trendsetter an equal chance to expose and monetize their events and products on the open market. I strongly encourage all trendsetters and influencers within in the nightlife, fashion, film, and music industries to take advantage of the Metrofunk system and apply for a specialized trendsetter account."

By taking advantage of the latest technologies, Metrofunk is able to offer significantly more services to our users. For example, Metrofunk offers unlimited uploads, as we are taking advantage of Amazon's web services, specifically EC2 and S3.

While Metrofunk.com's flagship location is New York City, the origin of some of the biggest trendsetters in the world, the site will be expanding to the rest of the major metropolitan cities in the U.S. and around the world. Also watch out for the official red carpet launch party to be announced soon. For information on sponsorship opportunities contact sponsors@metrofunk.com.

Move Over MySpace – 14 Year Old Web Mogul Aspires to be the New Titan of Internet Community Sites

Author: FanGap.com
Dateline: Tue, 14 Aug 2007

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “ERIE, Pa. - Aug. 14 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Karleigh Santry is no ordinary teenager. At just 14 years of age, she has parlayed a simple fan club site for the popular Disney super group the Jonas Brothers into what she hopes will become the next MySpace or Facebook, an online destination where millions of eager young fans come to discuss and trade information about their favorite teen heartthrobs.”

ERIE, Pa. - Aug. 14 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Karleigh Santry is no ordinary teenager. At just 14 years of age, she has parlayed a simple fan club site for the popular Disney super group the Jonas Brothers (JonasBrothersFan.com) into what she hopes will become the next MySpace or Facebook, an online destination where millions of eager young fans come to discuss and trade information about their favorite teen heartthrobs.

(c) Send2PressWhile many teenagers would be happy just to have the number one online destination for fans of a popular Disney group with over 10,000 registered visitors in five months and 12,000 unique visitors per day, Karleigh envisioned something more; an umbrella site where fans could create their own websites for their favorite music artists and television actors. Thus was born FanGap.com, a website where users can create and host their own fan websites for free. In less than a week Karleigh has already fielded hundreds of requests for custom fan sites from teens clamoring to pay homage to their idols.

In March of this year, Karleigh found herself frustrated by the lack of information about her favorite band, the Jonas Brothers. She talked to her dad, a web architect with over 13 years in web development and they decided to create a community website for the Jonas Brothers where fans could collaborate via forums, get tour date information, blog, participate in polls and contests and upload images and video. Karleigh, an adept graphic artist, created all of the graphics and wrote all of the content for the website using a popular, free open source program called DotNetNuke. Soon the site began to grow; so much so that the website had to be moved to its own dedicated server and Google ads were introduced to cover the costs. Karleigh has been able to use the growing revenue from the site to attend Jonas Brothers' concerts and, of course, to launch FanGap.com.

"I started this site for the fans. The users on my site are absolutely amazing and I couldn't ask for anything better, without them, my site wouldn't be anywhere near as successful as it is today and I am really thankful for that. Now, with FanGap.com, my users can duplicate JonasBrothersFan.com for their own favorite artist or group and stylize it with a custom look and feel," says Karleigh.

An honor student who plays basketball and soccer, Karleigh will enter the 9th Grade this year. In her spare time, she listens to the Jonas Brothers, and hangs out with her friends, parents, Karyn and Patrick, sister Katie, and two brothers, P.J. and Danny.
