ORLANDO, FL. (Top40 Charts/ IZEA Official Website) IZEA, Inc.

Daddy Yankee's Staree profile can be found at
"Staree represents the next big thing in social media," said Daddy Yankee. "Facebook and Twitter are great, but they don't let you easily monetize your fan base. Staree is designed to help social media stars, big and small, connect with brands and make money through advertising. I like the idea so much I wanted an equity stake in the company."

Daddy Yankee received 800,000 shares of IZEA restricted stock in connection with his services as a Staree ambassador. "Daddy Yankee is a Latino cultural icon," said Ted Murphy, Founder and CEO, IZEA. "We are thrilled to have him as a Staree ambassador and a shareholder of IZEA. His strong roots in the Latin community and crossover appeal make him an ideal partner as we look to expand our footprint in the Latino market."

Staree allows users to post photos and videos from their mobile device or desktop, and share them with friends through Facebook and Twitter. Users make money from display advertising targeted to their content and product placement in photos and videos.
