Meredith Corp.
Finalist Social Networking (Excluding Facebook, MySpace)

Instead of repurposing magazine content - And possibly cannibalizing print sales - Meredith Corp. created a standalone social site to let home chefs shine by exchanging recipes and photos, planning parties, entering contests and communicating via message boards. On the back end, a matching algorithm recommends groups and recipes based on user-registration information and behavior, delivering a customized experience to each. Since its January 2009 launch, more than 16,000 recipes have been added, while the site gives advertisers and marketers unique opportunities to target consumers.
