New York, NY (PRWEB) October 13, 2008
VidEngage.com today announced the grand opening of its video enabled social networking platform. Among a comprehensive offering of traditional social networking functions, VidEngage.com has launched a new video enabled community, in which users can create multiple video profiles for different purposes, such as for job hunting, networking, dating or communication. In addition, the platform includes new "video recording" functionality, virtually eliminating the need to capture, edit, upload and save video presentations, by using its "one-button-record" system. In effect, users can now manipulate personal video sequences as easily as with pictures on other social networks, enabling quick and effortless creation of video in multiple applications.
VidEngage has spent over a year developing the platform to support the early adopters of personal video in one destination. To that end, comprehensive video communications functionality has been integrated into the platform. The website is split into different sections to highlight the use of video for different purposes, such as for creating and distributing a secure video resume to prospective employers. This section allows employers to search video resume postings for particular education or expertise, or the user can include the link of their secure video resume on other job boards, such as Monster.com or Career Builder.
Another section supports the creation of a dating profile with searchable fields as in other dating sites, but with the added value of a high-resolution video presentation that depicts the personality dynamics and demeanor of a user in less than two minutes. VidEngage believes that its dating platform eliminates the profile inaccuracy that plagues many other dating sites, because the manipulation of video is so much more difficult than that for pictures.
"The addition of video in a dater's profile clearly puts the VidEngage platform in a very competitive position when compared to other dating sites," says Paul Nash, CEO of VidEngage.com.
The site is tied together with comprehensive suite of video communications tools, all using the "one-button-record" system. Users can quickly and easily send a video email to the mailbox of a friend, create a video blog, or "vlog", on their profile, post video testimonials on the "video wall" of a friend or even launch a real-time video conference with up to 10 users simultaneously in a proprietary Flash-based system.
"We are so pleased with the system and the overwhelming reaction of our users", says Mr. Nash. "The extra dynamic offered by video in traditional social network settings makes more established social networks seem old and tired. It has been amazing to see the massive growth of the network during both our beta-testing and initial launch phase. It's clear that VidEngage.com can be a force in the marketplace as more and more people transition to video in their day-to-day relationships."
