MyLikes is excited to have some really smart and influential people on board! :)

Today, we are excited to announce our seed funding and our advisory board. The round was over-subscribed and we wanted to get investments from people we knew and respected.

Investors in the round included Paul Buchheit and Sanjeev Singh, founders of Gmail and FriendFeed and who are currently at Facebook; Georges Harik, early Google director; Dipchand Nishar, ex-Google director and current VP of Products at LinkedIn; Keval Desai, VP of Digg; Aydin Senkut from Felicity Ventures; Greg Lee from XG Ventures; David Hirsch from Metamorphic Ventures; and active ex-Google angel investors Richard Chen, Thomas Korte and David Scacco.

We are also very excited to have on-board Robert Scoble (http://scobleizer.com) and Louis Gray (http://blog.louisgray.com) have joined the MyLikes Advisory Board. As strategic advisors, both Scoble and Gray can provide valuable insight on how to effectively recruit influencers on the web, as well as how to fine tune the MyLikes platform to meet the needs of today's blogger. Gokul Rajaram, founder of ChaiLabs and the "Godfather of AdSense" (http://www.crunchbase.com/person/gokul-rajaram), is also joining the advisory board to provide feedback and guidance on the advertising model.
