Eva – The real video social network

Eva – The real video social network

Social networking is everywhere these days, and here’s one to look into

Social media is big. Mind bogglingly big. In fact it’s estimated that over two billion people currently use some form of social media. That’s at least one in every four of us worldwide. And it’s growing too, at a rate of around two to three hundred million users per year.

We now have the ability to share virtually every aspect of our lives as an image, video or just a string of text. Whether sharing all of it is a good thing or not is up to you to decide, but you can’t knock the potential for bringing friends and family together and sharing life’s experiences at the instant they happen.

It’s little wonder that UK developer Forbidden Technologies has released the latest in social media networks.

Socially Eva After

Eva is a new video social network, which uses Forbidden Technologies’ industry leading cloud video platform, Forscene, to allow the user to watch, create, share and engage in content from around the globe.

Using the patented Evafeed, you can scan through the collective content of thousands of users based on your own interests, location, and the friends and acquaintances you decide to follow. All you need to do is simply launch the app and the feed will start playing using your pre-defined preferences.

You can shoot your own footage and upload it to the Eva cloud using your profile, then much like a YouTube video you can share it with friends and either comment on others or allows others to comment on your video. You can also include tags, include friends and, through the video platform, express whatever ideas or world views you have based on the footage you’ve taken.

Described as the YouTube for the Instagram generation, Eva hopes to become the world’s leading social video sharing platform. And with more features due to be made available soon, such as a 36,000-strong filter pack and trim feature, it may well be able to nab a good share of the social media market space.

The Growing Network

A lot of thought and focus has gone into making Eva a balanced, great-looking app. But it has an uphill battle ahead if it’s to make its mark as the go-to app for sharing video content.

However, based on what we’ve seen so far, the future is looking bright for this expressive app. With more content being added by the second and more members joining the fold, expect to see Eva making the headlines and becoming as big as the developer hopes in the coming months.
