For those of you Android or Blackberry users who have been left out of the Vine craze, fear not because there is another micro video platform that can serve your needs. Keek is a platform where users can upload videos to share with their friends and followers. You can upload videos using your webcam or the Keek app for Android, iPhone, and BlackBerry. The videos are referred to as Keeks and unlike Vine where you can only upload videos that are six seconds long, Keekers can upload videos that are up to 36 seconds. Pretty handy for when you have a lot of cool content that you want to share. Also users can reply back to videos with text or video comments, known as keekbacks, share content to other major social media networks and embed their keeks into a blog or website. Keek like to be regarded as a combination of YouTube, Facebook and Twitter rather than a direct competitors.
The app was launched in Toronto in 2011 and now have 18 million users worldwide including celebrities such as John Legend, Soulja Boy, Tom Daley and the Kardashians. However, despite a massive following, Keek was pretty much unheard of in the UK until the booming launch of Vine this year. However the fact that Vine have failed to cater for the Android and Blackberry market may have been a gift to the brand who now have people like myself signing up in a bid to create and share some dynamic video content.
To sign up to Keek just go to their website.
