Cyworld USA today launched new features to enhance its impressive platform of interactive servicesâ€“ setting it apart from other social networks available for young consumers. The addition of the Cyworld Video Studio and Plaza, a forum for members to upload, edit, mix and share videos or photos, exemplifies Cyworld’s continued efforts to pioneer ways for its members to capture and share their lives with friends and family. Based upon the highly successful video launch of sister site Cyworld Korea, developers in the US worked with San Diego based Eyespot, developer of next generation media mixing playgrounds, to incorporate online editing features in response to a demand from Cyworld members for interactive tools that allow them to personalize their content sharing.
“We’re all about providing our community a platform that allows them to express their real world,” said Michael Streefland, Cyworld USA Vice President of Marketing and Sales. “This generation in particular has a strong need to be heard, share their ideas, and reinterpret existing conventions. Everything we develop needs to take it up a notch with ‘let-me-participate-too’ online features that incorporate their own ideas, creativity, and desire to connect with others through personalized self-expression.”
