PHOENIX, Ariz. - Aug. 11 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- UnitingCouples(TM) today announced they are giving back to couples that are serving our Country in the U.S. Military by providing free lifetime memberships to www.UnitingCouples.com, the Internet's first cyber community aimed specifically at helping couples preserve, meet and build platonic friendships with other couples.

(c) Send2Press"UnitingCouples recognizes the stresses military life, multiple deployments and war can put on married couples. Our efforts are to help military couples strengthen their relationships. We provide key information on relationships, marriage, and friendship all while awarding them lifetime access to all members and profiles throughout the USA, Canada, and the World. This is our way of giving back to those couples who keep us safe each and every day," said Kimber Clark, President and CEO of UnitingCouples(TM).

The Armed Forces offer great programs for all military members, single, married, and families, and now UnitingCouples.com expands the reach for couples to include civilians. This is beneficial for those who have finished their tour and are returning to civilian life. Many couples enjoy having the option to prescreen before making a friendship commitment. Some couples just don't have the time in their busy days to build new friendships with other couples. The reasons are limitless.

"The frustration with the lack of networks for couples is over," Kimber Clark continued, saying, "Our modern membership service is designed and updated with feedback from our members thus, creating a community that couples are contributing to, requesting, and making their own."

"UnitingCouples.com matches couples based on the unique couples profile based matching system and compatibility questionnaire. Once couples profiles are created, the matching possibilities are endless. Couples are able to locate couples and build lasting friendships based on similar interests, shared values, and mutual support," said Kurt Clark, CTO and Vice President of UnitingCouples.

Free Friendship Guides, and resources are also available to help couples create genuine friendships that prosper and endure.

Military Couples will have all fees waived for registration and unlimited profile posting in all categories. This saves each military couple $9.95 per month, saving $120.00 per year and eliminating the $25.00 registration fee. The announcement will run in the Stars and Stripes Military publication starting this month.

Key membership benefits include:
    * Regional database of couples in your area, and across the U.S., Canada, and overseas, including exclusive categories just for military couples
    * Proven and unique matching criteria system
    * On-line friendship guides and resources
    * Exclusive UnitingCouples(TM) Mix & Match to-do calendar with activities couples can do anywhere with additional links to local events

    * Browsable couple profiles arranged by categories and regions
    * Contest and give-aways

"It's important to keep growing and expanding as a couple, and making new friends, even after you've found your life partner," said Kurt Clark. "At UnitingCouples.com you can make as many or as few new friends as you like. It's about enhancing the quality of your life."

YFonGlobal Delivers First Social Network with Click-to-Call Feature

Author: YFonGlobal, LLC
Dateline: Tue, 26 Jun 2007

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “WASHINGTON, D.C. - June 26 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- YFonGlobal, a leading social networking enabler, added a high value benefit to their wyndstorm(TM) social network suite by providing the first click-to-call feature to its latest hosted social network, entitled MyGK, the private online member community tailored for The Golden Key Society.”

Valuable Online Collaboration Capability Meets Global Member Needs

WASHINGTON, D.C. - June 26 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- YFonGlobal, a leading social networking enabler, added a high value benefit to their wyndstorm(TM) social network suite by providing the first click-to-call feature to its latest hosted social network, entitled MyGK, the private online member community tailored for The Golden Key Society.

With this feature, Golden Key will be able to provide its 1.7 million members worldwide a free online buddy calling service between members of MyGK. Launched on June 14th, Golden Key is the first hosted online community to showcase click-to-call for members. This is an important feature for online communities with international members who collaborate online. Calling is the natural next step in collaboration beyond instant messaging.

"wyndstorm continues to lead the industry in providing social networks that are tailored for specific requirements of a private member community-and free buddy calling is a high value feature," said Marian Sabety, President and CEO of YFonGlobal.

Developed through the company's partnership with CounterPath Solutions, the leading provider of VoIP (Voice over IP) and Video over IP softphones, the click-to-call feature enables wyndstorm to seamlessly synchronize the community member directory with CounterPath's softphone application, allowing members to communicate quickly and easily. Whenever a MyGK member adds a favorite friend to their personal space in the community, that friend automatically appears in the click-to-call / IM (Instant Message) contact list in the application. The friend can then "see" his buddy's availability for a call, and the two buddies can then call each other-whether they are Windows PC or Mac users.

"Our collaboration with YFonGlobal on this click-to-call feature demonstrates an important step toward offering social network members and end-users in general a complete and intuitive multimedia communications experience," said Donovan Jones, President of CounterPath Solutions. "We are pleased to continue working with YFonGlobal toward enabling users to enjoy voice and video calling with multi-line and conference options, and Instant Messaging, all in one easy-to-use application."

"The click-to-call feature that wyndstorm offers supports both Mac and Windows OS users, which meets the needs of our community members, who are students seeking to communicate and collaborate across the world," said Alex Perwich, CEO of The Golden Key. "With the feature-rich wyndstorm product tailored to our needs for security, privacy, search, and collaboration, we are pleased to know that their click-to-call feature also meets the needs of our students in terms of Mac and PC platforms."

A distinguishing feature of the MyGK social network is the integrated "click-to-call" feature, enabling community members to call each other, for free, while online from any computer, from anywhere around the world. "That same functionality will also allow students to benefit from very low-priced phone calling for community members using the VoIP-based MyGK Voice calling service to call home, or friends on cell phones - a real bottom-line value to our students," explained Perwich.

"We welcome the opportunity to showcase the click-to-call service. It is an important value-add feature for online communities. Providing a safe environment that brings members together from around the world to learn, share, work, and play with tools for online collaboration and communication is what wyndstorm is all about," said YFonGlobal President and CEO Marian Sabety.

Nonprofits Embrace Social Media Platform – Wiffiti Gives Nonprofits Ability to ‘Text out Loud’

Author: LocaModa Inc.
Dateline: Tue, 03 Apr 2007

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “BOSTON, Mass. - Apr. 3 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- LocaModa Inc., a pioneer of interactive out-of-home social media, today announced that Wiffiti, their proprietary text messaging platform, will be a part of the Nonprofit Technology Conference in Washington, DC on April 4-6, 2007. The conference, focusing on Reinventing Politics: Creating Social Change From the Ground Up, will bring together over 1,000 representatives from the nonprofit sector.”



A R T I C L E:

BOSTON, Mass. - Apr. 3 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- LocaModa Inc., a pioneer of interactive out-of-home social media, today announced that Wiffiti, their proprietary text messaging platform, will be a part of the Nonprofit Technology Conference in Washington, DC on April 4-6, 2007. The conference, focusing on Reinventing Politics: Creating Social Change From the Ground Up, will bring together over 1000 representatives from the nonprofit sector.

Wiffiti - (c) Send2PressWiffiti enables anyone with a cell phone the chance to express 'the word on the street' in a bold, clear and resonant way.

"Wiffiti is a way for people to 'text out loud' when they are away from their desks. Part of the inspiration for Wiffiti came from seeing a rerun of the classic 1976 movie Network. When Peter Finch's character, Howard Beale shouts: 'I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore!' we thought, let's give people the chance to connect and yell what they're mad about. We're doing this by connecting screens in locations and events to websites, blogs and social networks," said Stephen Randall, LocaModa's CEO.

Wiffiti screens will be displayed in the exhibit hall on the opening day of the event, as well as on a grand scale in the evening reception and the conference-wide "after-party." The screens will allow attendees from a wide range of organizations to pool their opinions by sending a text message to the screen, viewable by everyone at the conference and open for participation online at www.wiffiti.com. You can also add polls and petition widgets extending Wiffiti's functionality. Text messages may be organic, or may respond to "thought starters" that will be shown in rotation on the screens.

"By demonstrating how everyone's phone can be used to amplify a cause at events and on the web, Wiffiti is the ideal application to highlight at NTC," said Katrin Verclas, Executive Director of NTEN, "The conference is all about creating communities among nonprofits, and giving these communities a stronger voice. Wiffiti embodies these goals perfectly."

LocaModa is also going to donate a Wiffiti system to an organization that messages the best 'Text out Loud.'

About LocaModa

The Company was founded on the insight that millions of people accustomed to the immediacy and richness of the web will seek the quickest and easiest method of getting information, entertainment and social experiences when they are away from their desktop PC or TV. That immediacy will come via the mobile phone connecting and controlling media on out-of-home networks such as Wi-Fi hot-spots, narrowcast digital signage, and IP-based entertainment networks (jukeboxes to cinemas). LocaModa Inc. is a privately held company, incorporated in Delaware, headquartered in Massachusetts and founded by Stephen Randall, a former EVP/Founder of Symbian.

Additional information can be found at www.locamoda.com and www.wiffiti.com.

The People History Celebrates One-year Anniversary of Preserving Memories of Everyday Life

Author: The People History
Dateline: Tue, 20 Mar 2007

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “MILWAUKEE, Wis. - Mar. 20 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The People History, an online social forum, focuses on preserving memories and interpreting history based on people's memories and experiences; this year they celebrate their one-year anniversary. The People History was created to preserve the thoughts, memories and social history of the ordinary man and woman.”



A R T I C L E:

MILWAUKEE, Wis. - Mar. 20 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The People History, an online social forum, focuses on preserving memories and interpreting history based on people's memories and experiences; this year they celebrate their one-year anniversary. The People History (www.ThePeopleHistory.com) was created to preserve the thoughts, memories and social history of the ordinary man and woman, similar to that of a celebrity autobiography or biography.

"I founded the site out of necessity," Steve Pearson, said. "One day I was searching for information about Warren Buffet and all I could find pertained to making money; there was no information about his social life or the era he grew up in. I decided that a site that would cater to real people based on real events would be interesting and useful."

While the People History does not claim to be an "historical expert," it does plan to leave behind a social history created from real people's lives. Pearson spent approximately eight months researching historical timelines and events and people add personal information to the database everyday.

Visitors to the site are encouraged to add memories (thepeoplehistory.com/VisitorsMemories.html) and this can be done anonymously; entries are reviewed to ensure that no material is offensive and then posted within 48 hours.

People who feel that they have a story to tell, or wish to preserve a memory have the perfect opportunity to do so on The People History. In addition, people who want to read about events and experiences from real people's Lives can delve into the memories and lives of others and experience a sense of nostalgia through their stories.

Information dates back to the 1930s from present. It addresses money and inflation, war, politics, popular culture, technology and invention, real estate and much more.

In 1960, the average cost of a house was $12,600.00 and gas was .25 per gallon; in 2001, that same house cost $136,150.00 and gas was $1.46.

Historical timelines mark extraordinary events and tie them into everyday lives.

For example, in the 1920s, jazz was listened to most and men's fashion became less stuffy. Why? What was the decade of the smiley face and when did the skateboard era begin?

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “BRUNSWICK, Md. - Feb. 8 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- ArtisticPursuit.com offers its users plenty of social networking features, as well as original artistic content, that often cost hundreds of dollars per year to use or download elsewhere.”

BRUNSWICK, Md. - Feb. 8 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- ArtisticPursuit.com offers its users plenty of social networking features, as well as original artistic content, that often cost hundreds of dollars per year to use or download elsewhere.

(c) Send2PressThe majority of social networking features on ArtisticPursuit.com are provided free to registered users. Subscribers also gain unbridled access to advanced social networking features for free, including greeting cards, personal ads, an advice column, e-mail, blogs, forums, and classified ads. By upgrading to subscriber status, one can access premium artistic content and get unlimited downloads.

Users may subscribe for a minimal annual fee of $19.99 to gain full access to premium content from artists. This cost is equivalent to less than one month of dating services elsewhere, or downloading approximately one album of music with two music videos to an iPod. Artistic Pursuit feels that its users deserve an affordable alternative to comparable Internet options available.

Artistic Pursuit differentiates its site from other content sites by allowing paid subscribers to upload content for consideration for the Top 100 Lists for videos, music, literature, images and online games. ArtisticPursuit.com publishes this listing each month with fresh new talent that has been reviewed for quality. Subscribers who have content selected for the Top 100 are paid for their content. Paid subscribers also have exclusive rights to enter contests, including the current music challenge that will award a demo recording contract to one winner this summer. Registered users who are non-paying subscribers can also upload and share content in the listings sections.

"Artistic Pursuit has learned a great deal from pioneers in both the artistic and social networking arenas, including Taxi, MySpace and YouTube," says Shelton Alexander, CEO of Artistic Pursuit, LLC. "The company wants to create a place for artists and fans that includes several social networking options accessible from one site, and then leverage these connection tools to discover and promote new artistic talent."

"We're building something like an online artists' colony," says Jeremy Biser, Vice President of Creative Content. "And the cool thing about it is that we've invited artists, fans and anyone else who wants to join us to come along."

ArtisticPursuit.com launched on January 1, 2007 and had approximately 1.5 million hits in its first month of inception. The company is now accepting original submissions from artists (subscribers) for the March 1st Top 100 Lists. Users can upload content to the listings section and utilize social networking features at any time.

The mission of ArtisticPursuit.com is to become the premier online destination for artists and fans to connect worldwide.

More Information: www.artisticpursuit.com.

More About ArtisticPursuit.com

Contests promoted by Artistic Pursuit are available only to subscribers. The current contest offers musicians a Demo Recording Contract as top prize to be awarded by July 2007. The company plans to announce a literature contest this spring. Artistic Pursuit is planning other promotional opportunities for artists within each of the five media categories later this year.

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - Oct. 2 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Onlinebootycall.com (OBC), a popular Internet dating Web site has a drive to succeed and it shows. The company recently reached the 1,000,000 member mark, and as a result, they are giving away the keys to a customized 2006 Supercharged Range Rover to express their customer appreciation.

"We are very excited about this contest and the product being offered," Brown said. "The 2006 Range Rover has earned the distinction of being the most powerful Range Rover, yet. It has excellent torque and effortless acceleration, just like many of our members."

The contest - "Keys to the Range" - runs from September 1, 2006 through November 30, 2006.

"This contest," Moses Brown, founder said, "is making us, by far, the most generous dating site on the Internet."

The 2006 Supercharged Range Rover is fully equipped with a 4.2 litre supercharged V-8 engine; distinctive badging; a unique exterior look; high-performance Brembo(tm) front brakes; anti-roll bars; and a luxury, exclusive interior.

Customized features have also been added and include: 22-inch rims; a custom exhaust system; top-of-the-line tinting; and more.
