eDoorways to Provide 'Doorway' to Top Social Networking Site

With v2.5's New Facebook Integration, eDoorways Plans to Create a True 'Open Platform' Social Networking Web-Based Environment -- Potentially Increasing User Base Ten Fold With the Flip of a Switch

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - April 1, 2010) - The eDoorways Corporation (PINKSHEETS: EDWY) prepares to flip the switch on the platform's first social networking integration system, 'Facebook Connect,' allowing users of the popular social networking site to cross-pollinate with eDoorways users and vice versa.

"This is a very exciting feature," said Ann Collins, eDoorways Project Manager and Social Media Consultant. "Whether you have an eDoorways or Facebook account, once you've connected the two, virtually any friend on either of the sites will become accessible through the eDoorways Followers / Following lists."

While this type of integration feature isn't completely unique to eDoorways, the company is amongst the first social networking sites to make the feature a standard of its platform - a feature that for a growing company like eDoorways can mean radically significant increase to its current user base almost overnight.

Mr. Gary Kimmons, Chairman & CEO of the eDoorways Corporation, stated, "If only 20% of our shareholder base, who may be registered on the eDoorways platform having a Facebook account, were to use the 'Facebook Connect' feature, it could add up to two hundred thousand potential users in a very short period of time. This is huge for us; and that's just an estimate based on our shareholder base being active participants. I can only imagine if all of our current users hit the 'Facebook Connect' button, we're suddenly exposed to millions of potential new users."

The company indicates that there are no plans to stop here. With other social networking platforms such as Twitter and LinkedIn being heavily trafficked, there are many opportunities for the eDoorways integration model to be employed. However, beginning with Facebook is a step in the right direction. Considering the majority of people on Facebook are generally found to have a least 100 friends, the integration should be integral to virally increasing the eDoorways user base and solidifying the company's competitiveness.

'Facebook Connect' is slated to be launched within v2.5 as a bonus feature by week's end.
