Launching Linkedwire.com: The easiest way to stay connected with Your Interests! Be it SF Giants news, Best Tech bargains or Social Happenings, there is a Channel for that on LinkedWire!

Linkedwire.com, a new "Social Interest Network", was launched to provide a simple but powerful platform, where users can find regularly updated information, fun stuff, deals, updates, news and happenings that interest them. This information is provided by other users who are motivated to preserve the quality of the content. In the words of LinkedWire’s energetic founder Mr. Kalpesh Doshi, “The simple reason the content quality is preserved is that LinkedWire gives credit where it is due: to the content providing users!”

To categorize variety of information posted, Linkedwire.com introduces the concept of a “Channel”. The closest analogy is that of a TV Channel. Similar to TV Channels, LinkedWire Channels provide rich content on a variety of topics such as Sports, Music, Technology, Education etc. Channels are created and managed by regular users known as “Channel Owners” who “Broadcast” content in the form of text, links, photos and videos. The only thing the users need to do is, log-in to LinkedWire (Facebook login also works) and become “Viewers” by “Wiring-on” to the channels of their interest!

LinkedWire Channel owners are motivated and committed to preserve the quality of the content on the channels, mainly for two reasons: First, the viewers can influence the Channel rating, which directly determines if the Channel qualifies for the prestigious “LinkedWire Top 25” Channels list every month. LinkedWire advertises “LinkedWire Top 25” channels on all the major Social Media sites. These channels are also promoted during special marketing campaigns. Second, the rating determines the attractiveness of a channel for the advertisers. LinkedWire pays a cut of the ad revenue to the Channel Owner. So, higher the Channel Rating, higher the chances of monetary benefit! The Channel owners also collect LinkedWire points if they achieve important milestones. LinkedWire points can be redeemed for various rewards.

http://www.linkedwire.com beta site was launched in Q1 of 2012 and within a short duration, a couple of hundred channels and thousands of users are already active. In next few quarters the site will go through rapid development to enhance user experience and to increase engagement. As per Mr. Doshi, LinkedWire team is also working on adding a meaningful number of sponsors for advertisements and one or more rounds of seed funding are also on the cards.
