DAILYME LAUNCHES PUBLIC BETA OF ITS CUSTOMIZED NEWS PLATFORM

Users Choose the Types of News They Want, Delivery Method – Web, Email, Automated Printing – and Time of Publication

Draws from Thousands of Professional News Sources, User-Generated Content

 

HOLLYWOOD, FL., October 9, 2007 – DailyMe (http://dailyme.com), a news platform and community that allows consumers to personalize their news and receive it on their own schedule and through their preferred delivery formats, today announced the launch of its public Beta period, which for the first time makes the service available to the general public.

Different than other online news sources, DailyMe literally builds a personalized news digest for each reader based on his or her own personal preferences, using choices of news categories, keywords, individual news sources, and pre-configured profiles developed by both the editorial team and DailyMe users.  Each user's edition of DailyMe is drawn from a combination of thousands of licensed, professional news sources as well as user-generated content. Further, each user can choose to have DailyMe delivered via the web, sent via email or automatically output from their personal computer printer at a specified time of day.

Many news aggregators today pull together summaries of individual news stories, but to read an entire story users are forced to leave the aggregator's site and travel to the content provider's, leaving them to come back on their own.  DailyMe solves this navigation dilemma.  DailyMe users can read each story completely within the DailyMe platform, where a variety of community features also can be accessed.

"When we began working on DailyMe, our goal was to combine the best of online and print media.  Each, we felt, had its strengths, but nobody had yet brought the two together to their greatest advantage.  Until now.  With DailyMe, each individual can choose the news that interests them most and have it delivered fresh at a specific time via their preferred format.  Want to read about international news every morning at 9 on the web?  Done.  Interested in the latest sports news via email every night at 10?  DailyMe can do that, too.  Our Beta is open to the public starting today, so I encourage everyone interested in news to come by and give DailyMe a try," said Eduardo Hauser, DailyMe's founder and CEO.

DailyMe is a free, advertising supported service.  Anyone who wishes to customize their news experience with DailyMe need only travel to the DailyMe site and create an account, a simple process that takes just a few minutes.
