San Francisco – DailyBooth, a social network that combines
photos and status updates, announced on Wednesday that it has secured $6
million in its first round of financing, led by Ignition Partners.

Existing backer
Sequoia Capital, and a group of angel investors also participated.

Founded in
2009, San Francisco-based DailyBooth currently hosts 14 million photos, and 47
million comments.

"DailyBooth’s applications for web and mobile encourage
consumers to snap photos with front-facing cameras to capture their faces at
various moments in time," the company said.

"It is this face-driven
ideology that enables DailyBooth to engage a large youth audience who prefer to
communicate with pictures of themselves, as opposed to text or video."
