2pad Turns Yahoo and Google Groups into Facebook Style Social Networks

Share Article

2pad, the first private online media sharing service, announced today a revolutionary new feature which bridges the gap between photo and video sharing within Yahoo/Google groups and social networks, such as Facebook and MySpace.

2pad, the first private online media sharing service, brings easy and virtually unlimited media attachments to Yahoo/Google group emails.

Yahoo and Google were precursors in social networking when they purchased egroups in 1999 (which became Yahoo Groups) and DejaNews in 2001 (which became Google Groups). Indeed, such user groups led the way in developing social communication for all possible passions and shared interests.

As of late, Yahoo! groups and Google groups have been suffering from their lack of ability to readily share photos and videos, a weakness that Facebook has leveraged to its best interest. Now, thanks to 2pad, Yahoo! and Google groups offer another solution for photo and video sharing.

Forget about the problems you had in the past with file attachments in Yahoo/Google groups. Now, you can attach as many photos and videos as you wish to emails for the group to view:

  •      Despite groups rejecting attachments
  •     Even when members are in digest mode or browsing the messages from the Web, they will be able to view the media (up to 100MB per email).

How does it work? Just cc: 2pad @ 2pad.com when you send emails to the group with media files attached. Here is what will happen:

This email will probably be rejected by Yahoo/Google, but will always be accepted by 2pad.com. 2pad will then send the same email on your behalf to the group, with a clickable link to view the photos/videos instead of the attached files. Aaron Boublil, CEO of 2pad, states: "With 2pad, you can now email photos and videos to Yahoo/Google groups by just adding 2pad @ 2pad.com as a cc:."

Try it now. Send photos and/or videos to your group and cc: 2pad @ 2pad.com.
