Woodland Hills, CA (PRWEB) January 24, 2008
PlanetOnline.com Inc., a national internet service provider (http://www.PlanetOnline.net) and provider of online shopping portal, announced the release of an online widget for their all-inclusive gift registry. By registering with Planet Online's shopping portal (http://www.planetonline.com), users are encouraged to make gift registries for almost any event imaginable. Now, through the introduction of this widget, sharing the list with friends and family has become even easier.
Users who have an online registry with Planet Online can now create what they have called a "widget" through a simple process which can be displayed almost anywhere on the internet. Social networking sites such as MySpace and Facebook are the primary target for these devices, but they can also be placed on any web space such as personal web pages. Through the widget code provided by Planet Online, a countdown is displayed on the selected web space with a secure link to the user's gift registry list.
While Planet Online allows its users to create gift registries for all occasions comprised of product listings from several different stores, some people feel sending out the list to friends and family can sometimes require too much effort. The team at Planet Online anticipates that through the use of their new widget, notifying friends and family about a gift registry can be made much simpler. "Instead of sending out notification to friends and family, they can see it on your personal website," said Greg Hill, VP of Sales and Marketing.
To view a registry online, Planet Online requires that users create an account for themselves. This helps ensure secure shopping while also increasing legitimate traffic to their website. This also allows them to serve online merchants better by growing online shopping communities.
In a world where we are all constantly connected through social networking sites and wireless devices, Planet Online is hoping that the inclusion of this device will change the way we view and share the gift registry. While networking sites are posting exponential numbers in growth, Planet Online plans to make some of these users their shoppers at PlanetOnline.com.
Users of PlanetOnline.com can already make their own gift registry for any occasion, but now sharing it through the use of an online widget is another option available instead of sending paper or e-mail notifications. You can visit http://giftregistry.PlanetOnline.com today to create your own gift registry and widget.
