Groundbreaking Study Confirms Slide Has 65% of Total Market, Reaching Nearly 14% of Global Internet Audience

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - June 13, 2007) - Slide, Inc., the leading online personal media network, today announced that a groundbreaking report from comScore shows that Slide has more than 117 million unique monthly viewers, reaching more than 65 percent of the total widget viewing audience.

"We are excited to see comScore's report, which validates the enormous reach of the widget economy and Slide's leadership position," said Max Levchin, founder and CEO of Slide. "comScore continues to be a leader in establishing measurement standards on the Web, and we're thrilled that this report confirms that our constant focus on the user experience is the best way to build out a personal media network."

Slide's products -- Slide Shows, Slide SkinFlix, Slide FunPix and Slide Guestbooks -- are self-expression tools that people create and personalize on and then take anywhere, including social networks, blogs and even desktops. Released today for the first time, comScore's Widget Metrix report is the first 3rd party measurement of distributed, rich-media networks and establishes the medium as a powerful new avenue for marketers and advertisers.

"When we first looked at these numbers, we were absolutely blown away," said Linda Boland Abraham, executive vice president at comScore. "The fact that Slide's reach represents almost 14% percent of the global Internet audience is incredible. This is uncharted territory for our industry -- a year ago hardly anyone knew what a widget was."

The Slide network has experienced exponential growth over the past year with more than 117 million unique viewers each month, and more than 200,000 new Slide Shows added to the Slide Network each day.
