Albany, CA (PRWEB) February 4, 2008
MyKaroo, the free Internet service that provides a unique page of content and user-generated comments next to every website in the world, announced today that it has formed an alliance with Food and Beverage International, home to the website FBWorld.com. Food and Beverage International publishes the highly respected magazine Food and Beverage International Magazine. It also hosts the websites FBWorld.com and NutraFoodies.com. MyKaroo will provide a distribution medium for Food and Beverage International's videos, recipes, interviews, articles, and other content next to food and beverage related websites.
"Basically, we have a great deal of content we'd love to create some different channels for," commented Food and Beverage International's CEO Mike Walsh. "We publish news, celebrity chef recipes, articles, e magazines, videos, you name it. But up to this point, it's only been distributed either through our own magazines or our own websites. MyKaroo will now allow us to put our content up in the MyKaroo page next-door to various food and beverage websites of our choice. This augments our ability to reach the public tremendously."
"We're glad to be working with FBWorld.com through Food and Beverage International," added MyKaroo CEO Barry Smiler. "They have delicious recipes from some of the greatest chefs in the world, insightful wine reviews, information for the organic food consumer, the list goes on and on. We think the MyKaroo users will be delighted to gain easy access to all this information."
MyKaroo is a free, fully opt-in service. It is already active next to every website in the world. With MyKaroo installed to their browsers, users can view the unique MyKaroo content that is next to any website, post comments about the next-door website, and see what others have posted. "Although MyKaroo offers users a blog next to every website in the world, the MyKaroo blog is not controlled by the next-door website," explained Barry Smiler, CEO of MyKaroo. "This allows users to freely comment about the next-door website and offer their own opinions."
Initially, Food and Beverage International will contribute recipes and food-related videos to the MyKaroo pages. The public is invited to post questions and comments about both the Food and Beverage International content and about the websites that are next-door to the MyKaroo pages.
"After that, the sky's the limit," commented Barry Smiler "You see, MyKaroo isn't just a blog. It can feature any kind of content that a regular website can offer. It's just like any other site on the internet, except that the parallel MyKaroo page is always positioned next-door to another website."
MyKaroo is the first social networking tool to allow users to independently comment about any and every website on the Internet, right next to that website.
To get MyKaroo, go to mykaroo.com, install the plugin, and then every website in the world has a parallel independent MyKaroo blog page that comes up in a separate window when you go to that site. There is also a clean, fast uninstall.
Like most Web 2.0 social network offerings, MyKaroo is free and is supported by advertising. Advertisers can place ads that can be displayed on the MyKaroo page next to any website in the world.
MyKaroo is a spinoff of Bardon Data Systems, an award-winning software publisher which has been publishing successful technology titles since 1995. MyKaroo is a fully opt-in system that provides an independent platform for the public to comment about any website in the world in a unique MyKaroo space right next to that website.
