ZOOPY: FAST, EASY, ONLINE AND MOBILE SOCIAL NETWORKING
'Well done to Hayley Megan Weston from Pinetown - she's the winner of a 5FM Hamper in our Zoopy competition."
Within seconds anyone can upload photos, video, audio and notes to create and share their own online space. Local, online and mobile social media community, Zoopy, are aiming to make the world a smaller place and have completely revamped their platform and services.
The ‘new’ Zoopy gives users a slick, quick, easy and modern
experience – the fresh new logo and site redesign aside, perhaps the most
exciting development is the addition of two new services: Zoopy TV and
Zoopy TV showcases video produced by Zoopy’s multimedia teams and gives users access to content they usually wouldn’t have been able to view. Our current bandwidth restrictions are set to open up so it’s likely that more South Africans will be searching for new, original, niche content so the Zoopy TV platform probably has the most opportunity for growth.
The most significant development (and the coolest) is the focus on Zoopy mobile, SA has masses of mobile users but many of them don’t use their cell phones to their full multimedia capacity. The sharing of pictures, videos and audio recordings has massive implications for citizen journalism, live coverage and mobile social networking.
Zoopy realise this and now just about everything you can do on Zoopy
from your computer is also available on your phone by accessing
m.zoopy.com. The WAP site also lets you watch videos at a download size
that suits you and your airtime package.
The site is still brand new and in Beta stage but we’re keen for you to take it for a test drive – it’s really easy to use so anyone can take it for a spin.
We’ve giving away spot prizes of 5FM merchandise, clothing and hot CDs – all you need to do is:
• Head over to Zoopy.com or go to m.zoopy.com using your cell phone.
• Register as a Zoopy User
• Upload a photo, video or audio clip
• TAG your submission with “5FM”
