● SupaStar Interactive, creators of social avatars, teams with Socialbakers, the world’s fastest growing social media and digital analytics company, to present an infographic showing key Facebook engagement and influence indicators for the top candidates of the 2012 U.S. presidential election. The infographic features custom SupaStars resembling each of the presidential candidates and is the first of a series that will keep pace with the social media activity leading up to the elections.
● SupaStars are stylized, highly-customizable characters recognized by their star-like stance, rosy cheeks and star-speckled eyes. Each SupaStar uniquely represents its owner, becoming a personal brand. Companies use SupaStars as a part of their corporate brand and a way to better engage audiences.
● SupaStar plans to beta launch mysupastar.com in the first quarter of 2012. The site will allow users to create their own SupaStars, shop in a virtual marketplace and explore Planet SupaStar, a map-based platform that will allow friends and strangers alike to interact as neighborhood ambassadors.

our entire staff of doctors, we've been able to create an online image for people in direct contact with patients all over the country,” said Anthony J. Costello, Chief Operating Officer, Mytrus, Inc.
