    Likeable and Henry Schein Launch Likeable Dentists Platform

    Platform Serves as Full Social Media Solution for Dentists

NEW YORK, June 11, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Likeable today announced
the launch of Likeable Dentists, the first vertical of Likeable Local,
a Facebook marketing solution for small businesses. Likeable Dentists
was created in conjunction with Likeable's mission to help
organizations use social media to build relationships, engage with fans
and create a more likeable world.

"We realize that many small business owners don't have the resources to
hire an agency and don't have the time to create content for and grow
their social media pages themselves," said Dave Kerpen, Co-Founder and
CEO of Likeable. "This is the fast, all-encompassing Facebook solution
for small businesses."

Likeable Dentists was launched in partnership with Henry Schein, Inc.
(Nasdaq:HSIC), the world's largest provider of health care products and
services to dental, medical and animal health office-based
practitioners. With a yearly fee plus a small one-time set-up cost, the
platform provides full service social media support, with four key
components: content publisher, ad buyer, tab creator and an offline
Facebook marketing kit. Content will educate and engage fans, while the
Facebook ads and tabs will drive likes and ultimately new patients. The
offline kits tie social media into the physical dentist offices.

"With the four features combined, dentists can sit back, relax and not
worry about how to grow their Facebook presence," says Megan McMahon,
Product Manager of Likeable Dentists. "The goal of Likeable Dentists is
to make Facebook fun and easy for dentists, while bringing new patients
to each office."

The platform was launched in closed beta last month, with more than 100
customers. This past weekend, Likeable Dentists officially launched to
the Henry Schein sales force at the Henry Schein National Sales Meeting
in Orlando, FL.

"The theme of Henry Schein Dental's National Sales Meeting this
year--'Believe It -- Achieve It'--underscores our enduring commitment
over the past 15 years to continually innovate and find the best
solutions to enhance our customers' practices as they provide the
highest quality care to patients," said Tim Sullivan, President of
Henry Schein Dental. "We are excited to launch Likeable Dentists
together with Likeable as an innovative and simple yet very powerful
solution to help our customers evolve their practices with exciting
changes in the dental market."

Likeable is an award-winning, global social media and word of mouth
marketing firm. Likeable is also recognized as one of Facebook's top 90
Preferred Developer Consultants, and is the only agency to win three
consecutive WOMMY awards from the Word of Mouth Marketing Association
(WOMMA). In 2011, Likeable was named #118 on the Inc 500
Fastest-Growing U.S. Companies and #12 in New York City. For more
