Social Media Ventures Announces a Security Awareness campaign

JERICHO, NY--(Marketwire - June 21, 2010) -  Social Media Ventures, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: SMVI) announced today its plan to start a Securities Awareness Campaign.

According to management of Social Media Ventures (The Company), a Securities Awareness Campaign is not unlike an advertising campaign in that it is a series of advertisements and or sponsored messages that share a single idea and theme to create awareness of a company's current business and future objectives and potential.

A securities awareness campaign may include the hiring of investor relations personnel, launching a new web-based investor relations platform, engaging third parties to send emails to opt-in subscribers of newsletters and or information websites, placing ads on websites, sponsoring research reports, interacting on message boards and mailing press kits and information. These services can be paid and or hired by the Company with the issuance of restricted shares and or cash. It is also possible that existing shareholders may pay individuals and or companies to perform these services and these shareholders could pay with the transfer of their own shares and or cash (with no compensation by the Company). In the case of any services compensation by the Company, the Company, as a condition to providing any service -- require a discloser of said payment and or hiring.

Shareholders and or potential shareholders should be aware that a securities awareness campaign does not guarantee that a market will develop in the Company's securities and that in the event an active market does develop, the price of the stock may not reflect the fundamental value of the Company. It should be further noted that the shares are tightly held by few shareholders and this may have the result of a sudden increase in the price of the security and the same is true if the security is sold, it may result in a sudden drop in price of the stock.

The Company does not support in any way the use of "spamming" and request that shareholders immediately contact the company in the event they receive said or are aware of such activity.
