Announcing the private beta launch of Likaholix

As I type this, It's 4:00 AM in the morning and we are hoping that we are done with the last major bug fix. It is funny how something always goes wrong in the last minute. We were supposed to be done at 10:00 PM last night!

So finally we are happy to announce the launch of Likaholix limited private beta. So what is Likaholix you ask? Likaholix is a fun and easy way to share, discuss and discover your likes with people you know - check out some screenshots to see what the product does.

As part of the limited private beta we would like to invite 3000 of you to help us iterate on the product and make it the place for sharing your likes - whether it be for your favorite artwork or your favorite movies. As an added bonus we are giving away 5 Amazon Kindles to top Likaholix users. Details here - http://likaholix.com/contest

Finally, if you are someone who uses Facebook, Twitter and/or Friendfeed to hang out with friends, you can easily share all your Likaholix likes on all of those services.

So if you want to embark on this fun journey with us - request an account and we will send you an invite.

  4. I saw an interview with you guys from F@st Company. Good luck with your venture.

    I can't seem to find how to specify my location so that relevant restaurants and other things that are location specific will appear.

  7. Great concept. Noticed it does not support + symbols in "like" descriptions... converts to white space.

  15. A couple of questions for you please.

    I was wondering how do you become a tastemaster. I know you need to have at least 10 likes in that category but I noticed that I am now one in Books, but I do not remember filling anything out to become one? Can you choose which area you want to become a Tastemaster and how do you do it or how does it happen.

    Also will a help section b coming soon?

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Thanks,
    Sharon

    How can I go from 24 unique first time likes to 16 in a a click ?
    And from 43 submissions down to the twenties. What is happening ?
    I have nominated for 2 tastemasters but do not know how to go about it.

  17. I like to use Likaholix in combination with Twitter cause it's really hard to share likes/ info in under 140 characters. But I'm still not able to change my profile-picture. I tried both formats. [jpg & png] Would you mind helping me with this? I would be as pleased as Punch! =D
