RipLounge represents a new breed of networks, taking social media solutions to a new level,” Sabety continued.

Unlike other 3-D virtual worlds, RipLounge doesn’t require users to download any software. It provides a target market of 25- to 40-year-old social media users much more than a static profile. Instead, users get a sleek, interactive online experience of free virtual worlds, such as a swanky nightclub, beaches, and yachts, where they can meet, dance, flirt, kiss, hold-hands, and audio-visual chat. Via personalized 3-D animated avatars, users can invite friends to join the interactive social environment. RipLounge will showcase independent music artists, some of whose tracks will be available for download and play back. Advertisers will benefit from the targeted in-scene advertising, as well as the flexible profile-based data, available throughout RipLounge. Over the upcoming months, RipLounge will be expanded with new scenes and additional features for enriched member experiences.

“We are pleased to see the RipLounge project move to production,” said Andrew Stern, co-founder of Stable Media. “This has been a strong collaborative effort. Wyndstorm provided disciplined project development and deep technical expertise to drive this program to success, and we applaud the Wyndstorm team in reaching this key launch moment,” said Stern.

Skillets & More, the Barbeque and Grilling Company, Spearheads Effort To Find Missing Children

Kingston, NY (PRWEB) April 18, 2013

The company expects to have its websites revisions completed before April 25. Every year, 2,000 children are reported missing. Unfortunately, this is not always a happy and barbecue is just not the same with the members of the missing family.

Get alerts as quickly as possible and in as many places as possible is the key to getting back the living. When two girls disappeared from their home in Polk County, electronic Amber Alerts were fired out across the state in minutes. The alerts were flashed on the bulletin boards of the road and more than 30,000 mailboxes. The alleged kidnappers were arrested in Orlando. The girls were found safe.

The good news is that the missing is much faster than ever before.

A conservative estimate provided by Business Insider, there are currently 644 million active site. If each site took just posted an image size of a thumbnail child disappeared in the FBI’s list of missing children, each image can be displayed 322,000 locations.

The top four or five cm of any given website is called “Above the Fold” because it is the part of the site which site visitor does not need to scroll to view it. Most commerce site regarding this area as prime real estate. Statistics actually show that very few people actually take the time to scroll the page. Many website owners, therefore, are reluctant to put anything that is not directly related to their activity in this area. However, a company can get a tax deduction for donating advertising space to a non-profit organization eligible. In addition, most people like to feel that companies they deal with have a Community interest. Therefore, the donation of any amount of advertising vignettes could bring more business opportunities.

The potential to display these photos is growing by leaps and bounds. According to VeriSign, in the last quarter of 2012, there were 225 million additional domain names worldwide. Each domain has the potential to play host to several websites. If only a small fraction of these sites could be used as decorative panels, kidnapping and child abduction could almost become a thing of the past.

One Seattle Power Mom is Making a Difference at Your Childs School with Cutting-Edge New Fundraising Company, SwopBoard

Seattle, Wash. (PRWEB) October 07, 2013

Local start-up pro and power-Mom Natalie Angelillo (co-founder of Seattle’s award-winning Swink Style Bar) unveils a visionary look into buying, selling, wanting, and giving back with all-new company SwopBoard, an online community marketplace. SwopBoard lets parents put the items they have directly in front of people who really need them, in their schools, neighborhoods, and cities. It provides a trusted network for families to buy and sell, with a portion of each transaction going directly to their schools.

According to the Association of Fundraising Distributors and Suppliers (AFRDS), 94% of principals say their schools rely on fundraising, and Family Circle Magazine reported that many parents “worry that volunteering will require more time than they can commit, so they rule it out altogether,” clearly putting school needs and parent bandwidth at odds. SwopBoard offers parents a revolution, an opportunity to take typical household de-cluttering and turn it into charity. Plus, it’s simple to use.

“You no longer have to wait until spring-cleaning time or garage sales to get rid of old things,” said CEO and Founder Angelillo. “Families can engage in everyday philanthropy, keep things out of the landfill, and strengthen their communities by selling items they no longer need on SwopBoard.”

Unique to its perceived competitors, SwopBoard connects community members who, generally speaking, share similar lifestyles, increasing the chances of finding the right buyer and purchasing what users really need. “Initial users have found excitement in selling large items that cannot be shipped easily, saving on holiday decorations and winter sports gear for fast-growing kids – not to mention earning for their school,” Angelillo commented.

With its easy, good-for-the-planet re-commerce model, SwopBoard makes a difference for schools in three ways:

    Buy: After creating a SwopBoard account, users can access their marketplace and search for items in their school, neighborhood, and/or city. They can email sellers with questions via SwopBoard’s message system, share a listing on social media, and pay for the item on the secure site with a credit card, debit card, or PayPal.

    Sell: It is free to list an item and there are no shipping fees if users are selling to someone in their immediate community, which also eliminates interactions with strangers. SwopBoard serves as a powerful tool for users selling items that people in their community would want, like uniforms, furniture, textbooks, instruments, electronics, sports equipment, or clothes.

    Want: If users are looking for something specific, they can ask their community by using the simple “I Want” function. If someone sells the item they listed on their Want list, they will be notified via email.

For more information and to begin connecting with community members to benefit schools, visit http://www.SwopBoard.com.


SwopBoard was founded in 2013 by startup pro Natalie Angelillo when she needed to sell a large American Girl dollhouse and buy her son ski boots by the end of the week. She was inspired to build a place where users could put items for sale in front of people who actually need them, and donate to their schools in the process.

Angelillo has over 20 years of experience in shaping growth and development strategies, plotting new markets, and securing key venture capital. She is also the founder and co-owner of Swink Style Bar, Seattle’s premier blow dry bar, and has held c-level positions at Getty Images, PhotoDisc, and PhotoZone.


SwopBoard is an online community marketplace that allows users to put the items they have directly in front of the people who need them – in their schools, neighborhoods, and in their cities. Users can buy and sell items in a focused, trusted group of people, with a portion of each transaction going directly to a school on their behalf. Learn more at http://www.SwopBoard.com
