Meez Takes Avatars Mainstream

New Service from Meez delivers an Easy Way for Internet Users to Personalize Their Experience on IM, Blogs and Social Media Sites.

Meez provides custom avatars to use with IM, email and social networks including MySpace, Facebook, hi5, Xanga, Blogger, Tagworld, Xuqa, YFly, Windows Live Spaces, Yahoo Messenger, Skype and plenty more besides. You design your character using a neat little Flash app, adding facial features, clothes and accessories. The business model is to charge for special items using an internal currency called “Beenz” (very similar to Cyworld’s acorns). They’re also charging to add Meez wallpaper to your cellphone.

The company has raised $4.3 million in venture backing.
