Because watching television is something you do with friends
Its time for the next-generation video-watching platform. By leveraging the massive library of video content from YouTube and combining with the social graph of Facebook, VideoSwipe allows users on PCs and mobile devices to watch video in ways never before possible. Featuring unique SYNCHRO-features to keep all viewers together, integrated webcam and chat to bring connections to life and a host of collaboration tools to create, promote and engage audiences in ways not yet even thought of.
VideoSwipe began as a side-project for web application developer Ben Silburn. Finding himself bed-bound for four months after a skiing accident, he set himself the challenge to build an application on top of the Facebook Open Graph.
It ended up taking a lot longer than four months, and has developed from part-time project to full-time obsession. VideoSwipe is based in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
