Web2Corp's WBTO to Supersize Social Media Through Local Reach, Self-Aggregation Promising Idea, Say Social Media Sites, But Can It Be Done?

ORLANDO, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 11, 2007 -- is doing more to turn consumers into innovators than any other social media site today, and that's getting the new site a lot of press on the web. Web2Corp sent out a flurry of mailers to prominent media outlets across America, promoting as the Next Big Thing on the 'Net, and their initiative has paid off. YouGetIt is driving the social media buzz because of the unique feature-rich way it streamlines communication, networking, search and collaboration with technologies that are similar to the most popular sites like,,,, MySpace and others.

"The explosion of Web 2.0 and social media has created a market need that no one has addressed yet," says William Mobley, CEO of Web2Corp (OTCBB: WBTO). "A comprehensive social media site that puts all of the functionality of popular social media sites into one location has never been developed. Until now. YouGetIt is a social media super site that is going to change how consumers think of the internet and social media. We've been saying this for a while, and recently some other press has picked up on it. The media response has been overwhelmingly positive. People have said things such as, 'impressive,' 'awesome,' and 'incredible,' but a lot of people have also asked, will it do everything that we've promised?

"The short answer is: yes we can, but people keep asking us, 'how?' The long answer to that one is that, due to efficient technology and distributed programming teams, we have programmers all over the world working literally around the clock on YouGetIt, optimizing code and load times. We have servers located in Orlando and elsewhere around the US that we're running off, and we're ramping up to take the full brunt of the load when we open up for pre-beta testing on April 25. One of the great things about Web 2.0 technology is how much less infrastructure it needs than old Web 1.0-style pages. Wikipedia, one of the most successful social media sites, handles an incredible amount of data and queries, and it runs off of roughly 250 servers."

Rolling into the Web 2.0 expo and the unveiling of the product to the world, YouGetIt is waiting for its chance to show the media that the previous three months of PR has not been empty promises. It is going to raise the bar on consumer-created content through its easy-to-use self-aggregation technology that allows users to create their own aggregator that feeds them items and alerts based upon their interests. YouGetIt brings relevant and useful social media resources to members and then allows them to design a customized home page with an infinite number of possibilities for building communities, driving traffic, and creating value. YouGetIt also changes consumer expectations for local media, serving up new rich media content of import to communities on a constant basis.

"This new breed of socially networked consumer will define the innovation that we see emerge on the Internet over the next few years," Bill Mobley continues, "creating new business models and changing established ones. The new social communities are rewriting the ways that the online world operates, and's approach to social media -- aggregating the content for users in a convenient fashion -- is going to be a part of that change. The strength of the phenomenon is simplicity, which comes back to Web2Corp's overall focus: we make the web simple."
