Lockerz buys AddToAny

Last year, in the top VC circle, Lockerz was a start-up to look out for in the next few months and year. The Seattle, USA based social networking startup, which has become a hub of youngsters trading their Lockerz credits earned for cool stuff, seems to be well on way delivering on all those promise. Lockerz has recently acquired AddToAny, a software company that provides “share” buttons on websites. The details of the deal are not disclosed.

Apart from raising some venture capital, Locketrz has recently acquired photo sharing service Plixi.

About Lockerz: Lockerz, by veteran Kathy Savitt, is positioning itself as a kind of alternative to Facebook for youngsters. The activity on Lockerz is organized around “PTZ,” a system of points that users gather by doing regular social functions and later redeems for shopping discounts. --------
