Select2gether Gives the Gift of Interactive Holiday Wish Lists This Holiday Season

Connect Live With Friends and Family to Make Holiday Gift Buying Online Easier and More Fun

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - November 23, 2010) - Not sure which perfume your wife will cherish? Unsure if that new Blu-ray player is the one your boyfriend really wanted? Want to avoid your mom buying you the wrong size, not to mention style, sweater for the fifth year in a row? Just in time for the Cyber Monday online shopping rush, Select2gether, a rapidly growing social shopping company, today announced an easy-to-use interactive holiday shopping wish list tool.

Online shoppers now can share photos, descriptions and advice with friends (from any social network) in real-time and get instant feedback and inspiration when deciding what to buy that special someone. Select2gether also offers the only visual and interactive tool for price-savvy consumers to share their own holiday wish list with family and friends, even providing shoppers the ability to sort by specified discount percentages, such as items for 50 percent off.

"The holiday gift buying season is in full swing, and we're making sure online shoppers have the same enjoyable, interactive social shopping experience that they would have if they had time to hit the malls," says Jeany Stein, Founder and CEO of Select2gether. "Our holiday wish list and WeLiket tool gives shoppers a way to visually show their trusted shopping advisors what they want to buy or get so they can make their purchases with confidence."

More consumers will wrap up their holiday shopping online this year than ever before, whether on traditional sites like Amazon, eBay or newcomers like Google's Boutiques.com. In fact, eMarketer predicts that e-commerce spending will reach an unprecedented $51.4 billion in the fourth quarter of 2010.

Using the WeLiket toolbar, shoppers can now quickly grab products off of any website, or choose from the extensive assortment of products and brands available on the Select2gether site. Once users pick their favorite items for their wish list or a special someone, they can launch a live showroom to engage friends and family for live feedback directly within the online shopping experience. With visual selections to display the items, complete with full product descriptions and the best price matches if they decide to buy, it makes online shopping a more social, and less stressful, experience this holiday season.

The WeLiket toolbar is the first live, interactive online shopping tool that enables Real-World Shopping™ so shoppers can share and discuss holiday gift ideas with friends and family, anytime and anywhere. In addition, Select2gether recently introduced ShopLive Mobile, extending the experience to shoppers on the go and delivering relevant coupons and local deals to shoppers.
