Remainders: Lemonade, Pronto + HackerSafe, Jellyfish thoughts

Some remainders floating around the Web that are worth sharing with you this fine Monday:

  • Lemonade launches.  Think Zlio, but more streamlined and social network friendly.  They’re claiming to be the first Facebook app that allows users to make money. I don’t feel like doing the research, but I don’t think that’s quite true (especially if you count all the ad networks popping up).  Anyway, it’s a lot smoother of a process than Zlio, but the product search and depth needs some help. Great domain name, btw.
  • Pronto teams with HackerSafe.  Same deal as the others before them.  ScanAlert must really be ramping up their biz dev efforts.
  • Brian Smith thinks Jellyfish should ditch their search engine and focus solely on Smack: “I think the opportunity is not to try to convert the Smack into users, but rather completely blow out the social game
    show piece of the business. Game shows can be incredibly lucrative
    advertising platforms. Ad markets like the one we have today make this
    opportunity especially attractive.”  Good read.  Go there and do it.
