LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 07/10/12 -- MyLife, a site that enables over 60 million members to connect to and manage all their social and email accounts, monitor their online information and make valuable new connections all in one place, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the AlwaysOn Global 250 winners. Inclusion in the AlwaysOn Global 250 signifies MyLife's leadership amongst its peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players in the Global Silicon Valley. MyLife was specially selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.
MyLife and the AlwaysOn Global 250 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn's tenth annual Innovation Summit at the Computer History Museum on July 23rd, 2012.
This two-day executive gathering highlights the significant economic, political, and commercial trends affecting the global technology industries. Innovation Summit's goal is to identify the most promising entrepreneurial opportunities and investments in the global tech industry.

This year's crop of robust, innovative applications has launched a complex world of interconnected, sophisticated data being used by a voracious consumer and business userbase. Coupled with a massive smartphone and tablet adoption, the opportunities for this year's winners are unlimited," says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. "The 2012 AO Global 250 winners are driving the technology market into new, uncharted territory, representing the highest-growth opportunities we've seen in the private company marketplace in the history of the Global Silicon Valley."
The AlwaysOn Global 250 winners were selected from among thousands of domestic and international technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2012 list.

MyLife provides the ability for users to create their own personal portal, providing access to a central location in which they can manage all communication, monitor their online information and make valuable new connections. The company also provides a platform to search a database of 700 million profiles for personal and professional connections.
