Press Release November 6, 2009
For Immediate Release
Buffalo, New York
Pikk.com (http://www.pikk.com) officially launches today and offers a platform for users to take sides on important and not-so-important issues of the day. Pikk works like Digg where users submit stories to vote on, but gives users two choices, such as "Smart or Dumb" or "Yes or No." Pikk can be used to ask questions, get opinions on stories of many different varieties, and bloggers and publishers can use Pikk to embed polls in their web pages. The most voted on stories make the front page, so interesting stories naturally rise to the top.
Pikk also offers social features, such as allowing your friends to see how you voted. Friends can send messages back and forth to each other and discuss how they voted on different stories, and nudge each other to vote on stories of interest.
Submitting a story on Pikk is as simple as filling out a form, and there are a few useful utilities available, including a tool bar add-in that allows users to easily submit stories from their web browser, and a blogging plug-in that automatically adds a poll to blog posts.
Inquiries can be directed to Rick Harrington, EVP Product Development
