StarHabit.com becomes Largest Aggregator of Celebrity Photo and Video Content from RSS Feeds
San Francisco, CA – Friday, September 1, 2006
Pixsy Corporation today announced the launch of StarHabit.com, a photo and video search engine focused on celebrity content aggregated from RSS feeds. StarHabit.com enables users to search for the latest and freshest celebrity content from top providers across the web in one location, updated dynamically throughout the day. Users can now find late-breaking celebrity photo and video content from GalleryOfTheAbsurd.com, TMZ.com, PinkIsTheNewBlog.com, E!Online, PerezHilton, StarPulse, HollywoodTuna, Defamer, TheSuperficial, GoFugYourself, Anorak, Entertainment Weekly, Hollywood.com, and many more. In addition to searching and browsing the latest celebrity material on the web, StarHabit.com enables users to save their favorite photo and video content in a “MyStars” page. StarHabit.com remembers preferences so users can revisit and view all of their favorite material in one location. MyStars lets users save their favorite celebrity photos, videos, content providers, categories, and searches. Clicking a photo or video thumbnail image sends users to the original source of that material.
“The launch of StarHabit.com is designed to show new distribution partners an example of a next-generation celebrity photo and video search engine they can have under their brand,” said Chase Norlin, CEO of Pixsy. “StarHabit.com showcases the flexibility of our technology in powering media search engines for online publishers.”
StarHabit.com is built on the Pixsy Media Search Platform, a suite of technologies that enables the rapid distribution and management of photo and video search engines for online publishers.
