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.

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:
