EL SEGUNDO, Calif. - (BUSINESS WIRE) - FUHU Inc., leading the market in connecting people and content across their favorite destinations, has reported over ten million views in the first week of their Guns N’ Roses Spinlets widgets and urFooz cards of Axl Rose and Bumblefoot on MySpace, positioning the company as the dominant music widgets provider, facilitating extension of music brands and personal information across the social networking space.

Spinlets are new information-rich music widgets that let users place favorite artists’ videos, links, pictures, MP3s, ring-tones, news and more on their own favorite sites (www.spinlets.com). While urFooz are the newest in interactive portable profiles that, like a virtual baseball card, depict the user’s own avatar on one side and the user’s profile, favorite pictures, music, links and videos on the reverse (www.urfooz.com). urFooz gives users the ability to share information across their favorite social networks with a single virtual identity card.
