Friday, January 19, 2007; 04:22 AM

Netvibes, an independent provider of Ajax-based super-personalized homepages, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn Media as one of the AO Media 100 Top Private Companies. AO Media 100 is a power list of the top private digital media companies. Netvibes was handpicked by the AO Media editorial team based on a set of five criteria--innovation, market potential, customer adoption, media buzz and investor value creation.

Netvibes and the AO Media 100 will be honored at the AO Media executive summit January 29-31, 2007 at The Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York City. The summit will focus on the forces that are disrupting user behavior and creating new opportunities in marketing, branding, advertising, and public relations. The event will also showcase top innovative private companies that are changing the way media is created, distributed and consumed.

“The AO Media 100 are creating new revenue opportunities in the more than $16.4 billion online advertising market by disrupting traditional media and advertising models,” said Tony Perkins, founder and editor in chief of AlwaysOn. “They are innovating by applying game-changing technology to key sectors including user-generated content, technology-enablers, mobile marketing, community platforms, Web analytics, and online advertising services.”

The AO Media 100 was selected from over 1,000 companies, peer-nominated by leading venture capitalists, investment bankers and industry analysts.

AlwaysOn Top 100 recognizes the value that innovative and disruptive technology is bringing to the media marketplace, and Netvibes is pleased to be recognized on this front. Moving beyond the standard notion of a homepage, Netvibes equips users with the tools necessary to reclaim their web. Choosing from a myriad of modules and feeds, or by creating a module of their own, or picking a language of their own, users are able to personalize and simplify their entire digital life, creating a super-personalized web that reflects their unique needs.

“Netvibes is liberating people from information overload and corporate control, by helping them stand up and reclaim their digital lives,“ says Tariq Krim, Netvibes founder and CEO. ”We’re eliminating the barriers that separate web pages or services, whether it’s Google, YouTube, MySpace, Hotmail, your favorite blog or the latest web widget. As the web continues to grow, so does the need to simplify our digital lives and make it ours again.”
