"Slide" is a song recorded by American alternative rock group The Goo Goo Dolls. It was released in September 1998 as the first commercial single release from their sixth studio album, Dizzy Up the Girl. The song reached number one on both the Billboard Adult Top 40 chart and the Modern Rock Tracks chart, and number eight on the Hot 100 chart in late 1998 and early 1999. The song also debuted at #1 on Canada's Singles chart, and stayed on the chart for 70 more weeks. The single was certified Gold by the RIAA on August 18, 2008.
Slide, founded by PayPal co-founder Max Levchin, makes widgets that help people express themselves. The company took a big risk in 2006 when they gave users the ability to auto-insert slide shows into their MySpace pages and blasting bulletins out to all their friends. They did this by asking users to hand over their MySpace credentials, and doing all the hard work for them. This is a clear violation of MySpace’s terms of service, though, and most people expected Slide to receive a cease and desist letter and/or get access turned off. But that never happened, and Slide’s big bet has paid off. Slide has since evolved to offer a number of widgets. Users create and personalize widgets on Slide.com and can then use them on social networks, blogs and desktops.According to comScore Slide has more than 117 million unique monthly viewers. Slide also claims more than 200,000 new Slide Shows are added to the Slide Network each day.
