Keek Inc. announced today that it has launched keek.com, a new social networking platform that lets users quickly share video status updates with friends and family using a webcam or mobile device.

Video sharing is on the rise and is happening across generations, usage ranges from 92 percent of Millenials (or Generation Y), 80 percent of Generation X and 54 percent of Boomers, according to a recent study from the Pew Research Center. As this usage continues to grow, people are looking for new tools and services to make video sharing easier.


"75 percent of Keek's current audience is under 24. The youth of today clearly want to use video for both communication and entertainment," says Isaac Raichyk, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Keek Inc. "We've created a platform that provides users with a fun new way to connect and share their lives. Keek is a place where people can interact and build communities through microvideo dialogue which is more informative and fun than traditional microblogging or photo sharing."

Keek's audience is growing rapidly, with users across North America and around the world. People are using Keek to microvlog life experiences such as travel adventures, concerts, parties and more. Keek already has several early adopters, popular social video stars, organizations, businesses and celebrities using the service.

A keek, by definition is "a quick look, glance or peek". A "keek" video is up to 36 seconds in length. The service is free and extremely fast, you can record and send a keek in less than a minute.
