When it comes to communicating with fans, sometimes the comments section on a blog post or YouTube video just won't cut it. For those that want to forge a stronger relationship with their audience, several former YouTube executives including the likes of Michael Todd, Bing Chen, and Dean Gilbert have joined together to create Victorious.
But what is "Victorious," you ask? It is a platform for reaching out to fans in a variety of different ways, with an emphasis on mobile interactions. The main idea is that content creators will be able to engage in an open dialog with their fans. The most intriguing part is that communication will be a two way street, where fans will be able to talk back just as freely with the rest of the community.
While details are scant as of now, it is exciting to see what some of biggest names in media have cooked up to revolutionize the world of mobile promotion. We will have plenty more details on Victorious' plans as they become available, soon.
Oh wow, Habbo takes me back. I remember messing around with it back when Runescape was still on my radar. In fact, Habbo (then known as Habbo Hotel) has actually been around longer than Runescape. Yeesh I feel old.
And now it's available for the iPad.
What is Habbo? It's essentially a pixelated virtual world/hangout/social network for teenagers. Users can explore various rooms, customize their avatar with lots of accessories and effects, take part in daily events, and more. But don't worry, parents, it's also got live moderators who are available 24/7.
You can now download Habbo for your iPad for free.
Zeebox used to be an app about following your favorite TV shows and stars, chatting with like-minded fans, and enjoying the benefits of having a personalized guide to help you discover new shows. Now, well, it's still all of that. It's just that now we're calling it Beamly TV.
Beamly TV is the new name and look for the older app. 24/7 updates for TV shows and actors, chatrooms you can visit to gush about your favorites (and sometimes even chat with the celebrities themselves), and so on.
You can download Beamly TV off the App Store for free.
Countless social networks hit the App Store all the time, but it's not every day that you see a new app completely dedicated to making your music-listening experience a little more social and fun. Caktus, a new app from Caktus Media, was announced at SXSW in Austin, Texas last weekend, and it aims to do just that.
Caktus really, really wants you to listen to the music on your iOS device through their app rather than Apple's standard Music.app. Why? Because Caktus wants to share everything you're listening to with your friends in real-time. In return, if you have friends who also use Caktus, you'll be able to see what they're listening to as well. The app also lets you see what music is being played among those physically near you, as well as see what music is trending amongst your friends.
You can grab Caktus on the App Store for free right now.
