MySpace and Treemo sitting in a tree

Seattle-based Treemo said today that it added MySpace co-founder Brett Brewer to its board of directors.

Treemo, which helps people upload images taken by camera phones to the Internet, also launched TreemoTXT, a new feature that allows mobile users to be instantly connected to any user’s channel of content on its real-time social media platform.

“Treemo has the right technology, strategy, team and connections to take a leadership role in bringing user generated, multimedia content to the next level and makes it easily available across three screens — mobile, Web and TV,” said Brett Brewer, now president of AdKnowledge.

Brewer has built several Internet businesses since graduating from UCLA in 1996, the largest of which was Intermix Media (the parent of MySpace), which itself was sold to News Corp. for $673 million in October 2005. In his latest venture at Adknowledge.com, he is looking at behavior-based advertising.

“We’ve built tremendous momentum over the last several months since launching Treemo.com, both with carrier relationships and customer traction,” said Brent Brookler, Treemo’s CEO. “The addition of Brett to our board will further strengthen and enhance our ability to grow this business and deploy our content across broader platforms.”
