OSOYOU.COM THE UK’S FIRST 2.0 SOCIAL SHOPPING WEBSITE LAUNCHES
September 12, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology NewsOSOYOU.com the UK’s first ever social shopping site for women, launches its beta site today supported by Britain’s top three retailer groups, giving women their first taste of social shopping heaven.
OSOYOU.com is the first site to combine two of women’s favourite pastimes – shopping and socialising – by providing a social networking site, dedicated to the art of shopping.
The new website allows cyber shoppers to browse their favourite stores via a ‘virtual high-street’, which includes the best ranges on offer from both designer fashion and the high-street.
The UK’s top three retailers Marks & Spencer, the Arcadia Group (Dorothy Perkins, Evans) and Mosaic (Oasis, Warehouse, Principles) are all confirmed partners, along with the likes of Sweaty Betty, Kurt Geiger, Figleaves and Mywardrobe.com, to name a few.
In a world first, OSOYOU’s functionality includes an innovative ‘drag and drop’ shopping Hanger that allows users to drag their favourite items from retailers’ websites and drop them in to a virtual scrapbook, thus creating the ultimate shopping wish list to refer to whilst browsing.
Users will also be able to review, rate and comment on each other’s chosen items, building a viral, peer to peer referral environment within the site.
Dawn Bebe, MD for OSOYOU.com comments: “The number of women using social networking sites speak for itself – women love to share tips and keep in touch with friends online - and we all know they love to shop. OSOYOU.com is unique in that it’s the first channel that allows women to do both at the same time, and the beta site is the first opportunity for women to enjoy this unique experience.”
