Users visit xtraxtra.com to read, create, and share announcements about life’s milestones and events. We feature user-created stories from every ZIP code and over 28,000 schools across the United States. Posting is free and instantaneous, and users don’t have to create a profile or “friend” people. Rather than post the same story over and over again online and in different newspapers, tag one milestone to multiple schools and communities in a single step to quickly share the story with everyone that matters. Announcements can be emailed to friends and family and shared on Twitter, Facebook or other social media sites. We feature 16 milestone categories, but all stories are welcome. Users can also share local photos to bring another dimension to community news. We’re building valuable partnerships with newspapers to help deliver the local stories their readers crave, and our paperless announcements are attracting attention as a free and simple tool for sharing big stories.
