Sydney’s FM breakfast royalty Kyle & Jackie O have launched their own social media platform, kyleandjackieo.com.

The new website, created in collaboration with Moment Media and its content partner YuuZoo, aggregates all social media content about the pair and allows fans to connect with their own profile pages.
