Wish Bazaar™, the First Peer to Peer Wish Granting Network, Launches With a Goal of 1 Million Granted Wishes in 2008

Wish Bazaar Promotes the Motto: Pass It Forward -- Change the World™

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - February 21, 2008) - Wish Bazaar (www.wishbazaar.com), the first free peer to peer wish granting social network, launched its official public beta today. Wish Bazaar has set a goal of having one million granted wishes posted on its site by the end of 2008.

Understanding the power of forward good will, Palindrome Technology, Inc., the creators of Wish Bazaar, built a robust and rich social networking platform to enable the submitting and granting of wishes in a purely online environment. Capitalizing on a core human behavior -- the fact that individuals and communities inherently want to help other human beings because it makes them feel good -- Wish Bazaar provides a place and an incentive for individuals to help enrich each other's lives.

The Wish Bazaar platform is equipped with all the bells and whistles of a robust social network and user generated content site such as a person profile, friends' lists, favorites list, the ability to rate and comment on specific wishes, form groups, blogs, forums and an internal communication system. "Our goal with Wish Bazaar was to go well beyond the typical feature set and offer tools that enable people to contribute with confidence and ease of use. For example, each member can request and store vouches for themselves -- personal recommendations that show how they rate on over 12 core human competencies. Members request these from people they know who are willing to "vouch" for them. Additionally, our groups features allows public, private and closed groups for local as well as national group based wish granting," said Zameer Minhas CEO of Palindrome Technology Inc. the creators of Wish Bazaar.

To help facilitate virality, Wish Bazaar is equipped with a multi-generational, incentive-based tell a friend system that allows members to easily invite friends to join, has the ability to incent each generation differently and can track and display the entire referral tree of a user. Wish Bazaar has also launched a fully functional wish granting platform on Facebook with its Wish Bazaar application. Facebook members can post their own wishes, grants and favorites right on their profile page for others to view, rate and participate in. Look for an exciting new social giving contest from www.wishbazaar.com in March.
