AlikeList Launches Online Personal List Directory

Make and Share Lists of the Best Businesses and Services With Your Trusted Friend Networks

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - September 24, 2009) - AlikeList, a free online personal directory of trusted lists of businesses and services, today launches its Beta 1.1 version. AlikeList allows users to create 'Like' lists of their trusted and favorite businesses and services where they live, work and play, and share their Like lists with friends and colleagues. AlikeList combines the comprehensive directory of the Internet Yellow Pages, the positive local referrals of Yelp, the trust and social networking utility of LinkedIn and the ranking power of Google. The list directory taps into the wisdom and experience of users' friends and is fueled by trust. This saves users time and money by taking the guesswork and worry out of life's daily decisions.

"AlikeList takes the anonymity out of recommendations and allows users to tap into the wisdom of their trusted friend networks to help them make smarter and faster decisions about purchases both big and small," said AlikeList CEO Michael McConachie. "AlikeList is an online word-of-mouth engine to help busy people make quicker and more informed decisions."

Recommended businesses are listed by category and location allowing users to quickly search AlikeList and find recommended businesses in a single category or multiple categories, in any city, with three clicks or less. Users can easily view which local businesses are liked by which friends or view a list of all friends' recommended businesses in any combination of category or location.

AlikeList takes the guesswork and worry out of life's daily decisions and is fueled by trust. Founded in 2008 by Michael McConachie, Jim Delli Santi and Rob Gemmell, AlikeList is a free online personal directory of trusted lists that allows consumers and local businesses to share lists, communicate, and connect online.
