KNBC4 Raw News: Famesource.com



I got contacted last week by Mekahlo Medina who is a news anchor for KNBC here in Los Angeles. He invited me to come into the NBC studio for an interview about Famesource. You can see the interview above.

It was really cool meeting Mekahlo, and I felt that the interview went pretty well. We hope that this interview makes more people aware of the free services that Famesource.com has to offer aspiring and professional talent. Claim your fame!

Anthony why do I have 70 emails from Famesource?

So we made a little boo boo. In an attempt to message all of our users with updates that we were very excited about, we mayyyyyy have sent out one too many emails and internal messages.

Okay, so what do I mean by little? The system sent out over 9000 emails, for 2,600 or so users. But, Allen and I got the bulk of it with 5000 emails populating our inbox, however there were some users who got upwards of 70 or 100 emails. We really want to apologize again for doing that. The code was off by a 1. Yep, a 1. We have already gone through and fixed the problem. We really respect your guys' privacy and in no way did we intent to spam you.

We REALLY appreciate your support, and hope that you all enjoy the new updates to famesource. Be sure to send us hate mail if we caused you any pain...we deserve it hahah. But besides that enjoy the site and stay tuned for more updates.(umm without us flooding your inbox)

Fame...TV?

Yea, you read it correctly...FameTV!

We are currently working on a deal that will give our "fame-hungry" users the chance to be on a user generated satellite TV channel! This is very exciting for us all because it's such an amazing way to gain exposure...and best of all, its going to be FREE for Famesource.com members!





How will it work? Very simple, you check a box on the Upload page that says you want to be on FameTV...we'll handle the rest. FameTV - coming soon!

New Feature: Promote on MySpace


Famesource.com is a free social community that connects aspiring artists and athletes with fans and provides tools to help members gain the exposure they deserve. Whether you have a talent you want to be famous for, or you're just a fan of talent, Famesource is the place for you. Click here to learn more.

We welcome all new visitors to the site and understand that you probably already have an account with MySpace....so we decided to launch a new feature that helps you promote Famesource profiles on MySpace!

We are proud to announce that we have launched our first MySpace promotion tool. We decided to keep it simple for now. To find this feature, simply click on the Promote button next to the profile pic of the talent you would like to support (it can be your own), and then click on the MySpace logo.

All you have to do is copy the code in the text box and paste it into your MySpace profile. The Famesource.com logo will now appear on your MySpace and anyone who clicks on it will be taken directly to that profile. Exciting stuff!

We also added code to send out a bulletin to your friends on MySpace, so check that out too!

Looking for your big break? Check out Famesource.com now!

998...999...1,000!

We cracked 1000 users! For two guys who have lived in a dark hole for the last two months trying to cut out time for their friends, family, and (sigh)girlfriends...thats not bad, not bat at all. All we have to say at this point is watch out myspace. Sure you might have 165 million users, but let me ask you this...do you have Famebucks?. Check and mate.

All jokes aside we are very happy that we have had this kind response...keep it coming guys!! Tell friends, family and help our site grow!

Count 'em baby...count.

100,000!

This one was a big one, well maybe not for you. But for us...it was HUGE! 100,000 page views. Wow. One-Hundred thousand, say it slow, sound it out. Sexy isn't it. It's like one thousand times one hundred. Or even one times one hundred thousand.

For two 20 some-year-olds, it meant a lot. It meant people liked the site, were using it, and that 8 months of work had really paid off. Thanks again to our users who helped us accomplish this goal late in our second week. HERE IS TO A MILLION!
