SANTA BARBARA, Calif., March 24, 2009 — While most social
media sites help connect people in the virtual world,
SendMeHome.com aims to forge connections through real-world
objects by allowing users to create a collaborative blog
about a physical object. To help users more easily connect
and create great stories SendMeHome.com is making its free
service available to 175 million Facebook users.

SendMeHome.com’s new Facebook application allows story
authors and contributors to share their creations in bold
new ways. Stories can be shared virally through news feeds,
wall posts, and direct invitations. In addition, users can
view the Facebook profile of any author and also receive
Facebook notifications when a story they like is updated.
All these features will serve to virally spread great
stories and connect people with like-minded individuals they
may have otherwise never met.

To accompany this launch, SendMeHome.com is announcing
$1,000 in cash prizes in its “Cash for Creativity”
competition. The competition can be entered by anyone for
free — all that is needed is an object, an Internet
connection, and some creativity.
The $1,000 in prize money will be divided into four separate
awards. Three cash prizes will be given to the users who
create stories that acquire the largest number of followers
by May 4th. A fourth prize will be given to the user who
creates a story that exhibits the most creativity as
determined by SendMeHome.com’s two founders. More
information is available at:

SendMeHome’s Stories launched in January and users have
already collaborated to share cooking tips, collect
monologues, discuss political events, and even transport a
statue to Easter Island. An example story can be found at:
