In March, Aol announced that it’s social aggregator platform, Lifestream, would serve as a standalone product. In a further bid to push what David Eun calls Aol’s “start-around” they are looking for a hip and cool ambassador for their Lifestream product. As they push to revive themselves in the social media world, it looks like ladies are leading the charge!
Aol is on the hunt for an Ambassador who is not just tech savvy but actually a FUN geek. From seeing a number of different videos Tweeted and blogged, the females seem to have the loudest voice. With two of the three final contestants being female, it looks like this contest is reflecting what’s happening all over the web: a lady stampede! With 55% of Twitter users being female, more women in the US on Facebook , and more relationships on all social networking sites – women are taking full advantage of all that social media has to offer. Women like to talk, like to be social, and like to share— from 1930s Tupperware parties to the virtual world, women are raising their voices… and not just in the personal sphere but in all aspects of their lives.
In fact, though it’s still early—the two female finalists for AOL Lifestream are females and are rocking ~94% of the votes! One of the gals in the contest, Tessa Petrich is a Girl in Tech in the SF Bay area. She was the former VP of Marketing at Zimride, a carpooling startup in Silicon Valley. Now, she is hoping to be the life of the party as Ambassador of AOL Lifestream.
So help the ladies be heard, check out AOL Lifestream, and vote!
