South San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 16, 2007
Searching through YouTube and Google Video does not have to be like digging through a trash heap of cats playing the piano, bad karaoke singers, soccer goals and teen girls talking about their slutty friends.
Gloob.tv (http://www.gloob.tv) ("glued to the tube") is the next generation web video aggregation site from cutting-edge media company Future US, where the best videos are handpicked by a 25-person editorial staff purely based on merit regardless of downloads and views.
This innovative concept is simple: every day, Gloob.tv's team of 25 editors (or "spotters") provide the best web video picks and their links in several categories -- music, movies, news, games, life, sports, TV, celebrities, tech and stupid -- so users don't have to go trawling the web for what's high quality and relevant.
Gloob.tv editor picks are updated around the clock with between 20 and 30 video links posted each day.
Users can rank and comment on the videos, and even embed their own relevant clips, and "spotters" will be compensated based on the traffic generated by their comment streams.
Frequent commenters are called out on the "Today's Most Active Users" column found on every page.
Registered users can sign up for the Gloob.tv's free newsletter and have the editor's picks delivered right to their e-mail box.
"Gloob is part of our ongoing strategy to evolve Future as a platform-agnostic content and community company," says company president Jonathan Simpson-Bint. "We get to do what we are world famous for: filtering good stuff from bad, and telling people where and what to spend their time on. While Gloob is a web 2.0 aggregation business, it has a unique and, we hope, comforting old world angle to it: there's too much choice, our experts will help you through it."
