Just over one year ago entrepreneurs Jason Andrews and Matthew Tautt launched the event creation, promotion and social discovery website MyShindigs.com. Now in March of 2013 the two social media mavericks are back at it once again, this time to unveil an innovative social network for pets and pet owners, PetSociale.com.
A few short months ago the PetSociale co-founders caught up one evening with long time friends; a married couple that had been living in Spain. The couple shared some photos of a family trip along with Zeus, the family dog. Zeus would travel along with the happy couple all across Europe at times posing in front of famous landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower in Paris and Buckingham Palace in London. The couple mentioned that it would be wonderful to share these experiences with other animal lovers and pet owners.
It was this evening that led Matthew and Jason to realize that there was currently no significant unifying social platform for animal lovers and pet owners to engage with like-minded folks and share information on a wide array of topics as it pertained to animals. There needed to be a medium where the pets themselves took center stage through entertaining videos, adorable pictures or memorable moments in addition to better informed diet and health information and so forth. It was at this point that we focussed our energy into the development of PetSociale. Say Jason Andrews and Matthew Tautt. Topics include nutrition, health, availability of local services, activity meet ups and a place where relevant conversations could be exchanged between pet owners, veterinarians, breeders, service providers, retailers and manufacturers of pet related products.
PetSociale brings the animal and human worlds closer together for the common good. On PetSociale people have the option to take on the identity of their pets as opposed to themselves if they so choose. We built our own platform to provide a comprehensive, useful and in-depth experience that is for anyone and everyone that has ever owned or wanted a pet, loves animals or has been involved in the care, health, nutrition and overall well-being of animals. Add the site co-founders.
The new social networking website focuses on people connecting with those that share similar ideals and interests but may be outside of regular social circles. This new site seems to mirror MyShindigs in that it empowers the users of the site and provides the online tools to interact freely online. Most of all; the website is free to all.
As former Facebook President Sean Parker stated in a recent Airtime interview; Facebook puts groups of friends into silos and enables the sharing of information between friends within those confines, but one of the next online evolutions is about making new, relevant connections based on true shared interests. We believe once a company tries to become everything to everyone then it really becomes less meaningful and diluted on a direct personal level. Our focus is on creating online worlds for people interested in social discovery along the lines of specific and well-defined interests. We still tie in some of the key features to other social platforms so the value of including existing friends in that social discovery process is not ignored. Say Jason and Matthew.
PetSociale allows members to interact through on-site messaging, event creation, posting articles, posts and videos that others may find helpful or entertaining. We love animals and are excited to see how the website will evolve and be shaped by members and those who serve the pet community. Conclude Jason and Matthew.
PetSociale is a social discovery site for pet owners and their pets. It is a place online for pet owners to connect and share information with others who are passionate about pet ownership as well as those who service the pet community such as vets, breeders, service providers, retailers and manufacturers of food and related products.

The popular dog news website, Dogington Post, launched an initiative this week in an effort to increase their reach on the social media site, Facebook. Joining efforts with a national charity, the Dogington Post hopes to increase their fan base from 50,000 to over 100,000 fans.
When the site reaches their goal of 100,000 fans, they will make a monetary donation to the national non-profit rescue. Established in 2007, the rescue is dedicated to educating Americans on the cruelty of puppy mills, encouraging them to adopt only animals from shelters and rescue groups or reputable breeders, and rescuing former mill dogs.
The rescue was our winner for Best Rescue of 2012 in our Dogington Post Awards, said Brandy Arnold, Content Editor for Dogington Post. We know that by doubling our fan base, we can continue to bring awareness and money to the mill dog charity well beyond the donation well be giving them when we reach our goal. Its a win-win.
The Dogington Posts strategy for increasing Facebook fans is to remove dogs from their virtual cage for every 2500 new fans that like their page. When the site reaches their goal of 100,00 fans, they will make a monetary donation to the charity.
So far we’ve had great success with the promotion, said Brandy. Both our fans and our partner charity and their fans are really excited and getting involved! Its a worthy cause and were so glad to be part of it.
Additionally, the Dogington Post has already begun working out plans with the mill dog rescue for fundraising and awareness campaigns for the coming year.
Since the rescue was the winner of Dogington Posts Best Rescue of 2012, they are entitled to any and all donations and efforts by the site for dog rescue for 2013.

Quodle Launches! A Funny and Addictive Social Network Based Around What We All Have in Common – A Sense of Humor
Boston, MA (PRWEB) November 22, 2011
Team Quodle is happy to announce the launch of its flagship website at http://www.quodle.com. A new social network based around something everyone has in common ? a sense of humor.
Plenty of websites take funny pictures and throw captions on them(mostly of cats), but Quodle wanted to take it up a few notches – anything can be funny with the right perspective.
Quodle challenges people to see humor in everything and find that even a rock or a blank wall can be hysterical comedy. Even the most mundane of life can quickly turn it into a funny joke:
Stuck in traffic for an hour staring at that stupid vanity license plate? Snap a photo and Quodle it!
Neighbor in their bathrobe seem like a Jedi on the prowl? Quodle it!
Spouse refuse to replace the toilet paper tube? Quodle it!
Dog got its head stuck in the cabinet trying to steal food? Quodle it!
Uncle Rico have a few too many and start table dancing? Quodle it! (Maybe a few times)
Chances are that somebody out there somewhere will get the joke and smile. There is no denying the power of laughter?now share it! Don?t be held back, don?t be afraid, and “Let your inner comedian out!”
Quodle is a twofold sport ? a user can create(http://www.quodle.com/how-to-quodle.aspx) or a user can laugh. Ideally they do both, mastering the full Quodling experience, but if they prefer to just blast out a stream of jokes or sit in private and rate and chuckle, it?s all good.
Take a break from the grind, spend 30 seconds to sign up, and enter the Quodleverse to start wasting away time on the most addictive comedy website in years.
Quodle is a social media website centered around humor and jokes told by captioning and recaptioning any and all photos. In the right hands, anything can be funny! Where does the word ‘Quodle’ come from? Quote + Doodle = Quodle. Quodle is based outside of Boston, MA. Visit us at http://www.quodle.com for more info.
