Savannah, Ga. (PRWEB) July 20, 2006
Evoca launches as the first truly mainstream online audio recording and sharing web community. Evoca members can make digital recordings of any length with any telephone or sign on to Evoca.com to use Evoca’s unique in-browser recorder with a computer microphone.
Evoca creates digital audio (MP3) recordings that can be shared through e-mail, social networking profiles, groups, and RSS feeds. The recordings are listened to online, or downloaded and played on a computer or MP3 player such as an iPod™.
“Building on the democratic impulse of the Internet and the widespread use of cell phones, Evoca will change the way we communicate by empowering voices in ways never imagined before,” predicts Murem Sharpe, CEO and co-founder of Evoca. “We envision people everywhere speaking their minds, sharing their ideas, and storing their memories on Evoca. We see voice becoming the next tool for publishing and communicating online and through your telephone.”
Evoca expands the horizons of the growing social media market by taking social networking and online dating beyond typing a text message. It makes posting voice messages to MySpace, Friendster and Hi5 easy. Evoca also offers a new avenue for communicating marketing messages online through business Web sites and blogs.
Sharpe says, “eBay PowerSellers adding Evoca voice recordings to their listings report selling faster and at higher prices.”
Real estate agents, tour operators and business consultants are using their voices to attract visitors to their Web sites for longer visits. Journalists, professors, poets, and activists are using Evoca to podcast their voices directly from the Evoca.com Web site as well as posting to their own Web sites and blogs.
Evoca is also the first social media site to offer word-for-word audio search of consumer-generated content (provided through a technology partnership with Podscope™).
Another unique feature allows members to make premium recordings for sale directly from the Web site to any visitor to Evoca.com.
“The human voice has been notably absent from most consumer Internet experiences,” said Diego Orjuela, COO and co-founder of Evoca. “The emoticon, or smiley, and much of e-mail slang, was invented to assist in communicating the subtlety of a message. With recordings made and shared through Evoca.com, our users can convey their full depth of meaning with just one friend, their families or the worldwide Internet.”
Available in beta since mid-March, Evoca won thousands of members and became the Internet destination of choice for sharing messages globally. It recently distributed the so-called “mosquito ring tone,” a high-pitched ring tone for mobile phones that is audible only to younger people whose ears can pick up the frequency. On the other end of the spectrum, Evoca is being used to post the Peruvian presidential debates. During the just-ended World Cup, fans posted reports back to their home countries at online newspaper editions using Evoca.
