Dec 01, 2010, 10:15 ET from Oceanic Research and Recovery Inc.

PEORIA, Ill., Dec. 1, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Oceanic Research and Recovery Inc. (Pink Sheets: ORRV), a marine salvage and exploration company, today announced that it has greatly expanded its online marketing efforts.

ORRV just released a new Facebook application called the ORRV Treasure Hunting Team. Using Facebook's proprietary API a custom application has been created that will improve communication with shareholders and the public in general while greatly increasing the reach of company marketing efforts throughout Facebook, the world's largest online community.

"This new application is unlike anything seen before in this business," said Scott Heimdal, CEO. "Now we can do live video broadcasts with our shareholders while they actually interact with us in real time. There are all kinds of unique features in this new application that are going to help our marketing efforts and interaction with our shareholders."

"One of the most exciting things is that we're giving away great prizes to team members, even a chance for someone to come out on an expedition as a member of the crew. They even get a share of the treasure if we hit," continued Mr. Heimdal. "We wanted to have this new system ready to go before we launch our next series of field operations which is coming up very soon!"

All current shareholders with Facebook pages are encouraged to join the team. You can access the Treasure Team Application by following this link;
