Disaboom.com Sheds Beta, Launches More Site Channels

"Unprecedented" Member Support and Word-of-Mouth Turns Site Into Largest Social Network for People Living With Disabilities

GREENWOOD VILLAGE, CO--(Marketwire - January 24, 2008) - Disaboom, Inc. (OTCBB: DSBO), the first online social network for people living with or directly affected by disabilities or functional limitations, today announced that it is completely out of "beta" mode, and all aspects of the site are implemented and functioning to tremendous accolades and feedback from its members.

Located at www.disaboom.com, Disaboom caters to the over 54 million US adults facing some sort of disability, be it life-changing, or life-long. Never before has there been one website to serve as an "information clearinghouse," social connector, and trusted advisor to the disabled community.

"The response from the public has proven our instincts correct," noted Disaboom CEO JW Roth. "To grow so quickly to become the all-encompassing resource that strives to offer information, friendship, and a place to get questions answered for not only those living directly with disabilities, but for the friends, family, caregivers, and medical community as well, really confirms to us that we're doing something wonderful here," he said.

In addition, in the few short months since Disaboom has launched, it's landed such anchor advertisers as Ford, Johnson and Johnson, Netflix, General Motors, and Remax.

Among the many channels Disaboom offers, are specifically built "destinations," including:

--  Forums that allow community members to post questions and answers,
    explore issues, and share experiences
--  Blogs that showcase the diverse, passionate, and highly individual
    points of view found within the dynamic disability community
--  Medical articles written by nationally recognized clinicians that not
    only explain diagnoses but also are updated regularly with the latest
    research findings
--  Lifestyle articles and information to help navigate such key issues as
    living with a disability, health and fitness, traveling with a disability,
    sports and recreation, creating an accessible home, and using assistive
    technology for greater independence
--  Profiles of athletes, parents, entertainers, and other high-achieving
    individuals who have excelled in their chosen field
--  Live chat, allowing community members to contact other members in real
    time
--  Employment services to support both employers and job-seekers in their
    goal to create or find productive employees/employment
--  Community-written reviews of restaurants, retailers, cultural
    establishments, and other venues, searchable by locale
--  Dynamic videos that showcase people with disabilities doing what they
    do best: living life to the fullest
--  And much more, all at www.disaboom.com
