WORD: Variety Launches ‘The Biz’ social networking website

If you’re looking to schmooze online with entertainment industry participants, a new "in" might have opened up now that leading entertainment news publication Variety launched an interesting new message board and networking website "The Biz."

Calling it the "first social networking site for entertainment professionals and enthusiasts in the US," Variety expects "The Biz" will serve as an online meeting space for media and entertainment professionals to network, pitch products, exchange ideas, and search for jobs among peers and industry experts.

The site also offers a vehicle for employers to recruit new talent and target candidates by specific interests, skills and experience on Variety's platform, which it said is the top destination for entertainment news and information.

"The Biz" in its beta launch will encompass careers, community and content where users will be able to upload profiles, photos, portfolios, videos and more to connect with each other.

"We are thrilled to be launching ‘The Biz,’ said Variety president and publisher Neil Stiles in a press release. "This site will give our readers a unique new way to interact and forge relationships with their peers in the community."

"‘The Biz’ gives people a new opportunity to have a voice on Variety.com," said Jennifer Glen, Variety's Vice President and Sales Director. "Leveraging the web to build relationships and make connections in this industry is a natural next step."
