123Greetings Offers Free Interactive Widget for Christmas
Get a free virtual Christmas tree for your blog, profile, or other social network site. Let your friends decorate it online.
New York, NY, November 23, 2007 - 123Greetings announces the launch of a Christmas widget to celebrate the holiday season. As more and more Americans post profiles on MySpace, Yahoo 360, Blogger and other social network properties, people are looking for ways to spread holiday cheer online.
“When people come to my MySpace page or my blog, I want them to know a little bit about who I am and what’s important to me,” said Jeanne Heydecker, Marketing Group Leader for 123Greetings. “The ‘Decorate a Christmas Tree’ widget enables visitors to my page to decorate a virtual tree and while doing so, spend a moment focused on the Christmas experience. I want them to feel happy.”
The Christmas widget is one of the first scheduled to appear for a variety of holidays and special occasions. The widgets are easy to post by simply copying and pasting a snippet of code. They are available for over 20 social networks.
Ms. Heydecker went on to say, “Our widgets are essentially online toys for entertainment or for adorning a user’s personal space on the web. They help people express themselves on the web. Our mission is to be the means for our user’s expressional needs. Widgets are an extension to our more traditional free ecards.”
For additional information on 123Greetings’ “Decorate a Tree” Christmas widget, contact Jeanne Heydecker or visit http://www.123greetings.com/widgets/. The widget will be made available on the web site on November 25, 2007.
