NEW YORK — From Facebook to MySpace, LinkedIn to Twitter, social networking sites have become some of the Web’s most buzzed-about destinations. Now, Vince Gonzales, who exited his position as COO of Meltin’ Pot’s U.S. business in September, is aiming to launch a site that brings the virtual socializing concept to the fashion arena.
In partnership with Michael Dizon, who has 10 years of experience working at marketing firms such as Agency.com and Publicis, Gonzales has launched a social networking site at MyStylePost.com targeting style enthusiasts. The site had a soft launch this summer, but the duo were in final negotiations last week to sign a kickoff advertiser to rev up operations in earnest.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
