New York, NY (PRWEB) October 12, 2009
iVillage, the web's leading destination for women, invites their audience to instantly receive top stories, health updates, horoscopes and celebrity news on their browsers through content-rich toolbars available at iVillage (http://www.iVillage.com) and on iVillage's Facebook Fan Page (http://www.facebook.com/ivillage). The toolbars also connect users with their Twitter and Facebook accounts, in addition to iVillage's Twitter page (http://www.twitter.com/ivillage).
"The iVillage toolbars super-serve women with an easy way to receive only the content that is important to them, as well as instant access to social networking," said Michele Mitchell, Vice President of Audience Development, Research and Retention, iVillage Networks. "They will introduce many women to the iVillage experience in a very actionable, useful way. Users can select the toolbar or toolbars with the news they want to keep up on - whether it's great deals on Halloween costumes, diet tips or a numerology reading."
The main iVillage toolbar features tabs for the site's daily "big story," links to the site's most popular content, advice and games. iVillage's Your Total Health toolbar covers health updates and offers calculators and other health tools.
