New Share2Me Applications Let People Share Digital Content Across Many Communication Channels and Devices in One Simple Click
DEMO 07, PALM DESERT, Calif., Jan. 30 -- Nextumi, a provider of digital sharing solutions, today unveiled Share2Me (www.Share2Me.com ) at DEMO 07. Share2Me provides a quick new way to share digital content -- including photos, videos, text, Web pages and music -- in one simple step. Nextumi will provide a formal demonstration of the Share2Me product on stage at DEMO 07 on February 1st at 3 pm PT, and throughout the show at pavilion station number four. A beta version of Share2Me will be available for download at Share2Me.com immediately following the DEMO Conference.
"Share is a must-have application," said Chris Shipley, executive producer of DEMO. "Share2Me is an easy to use, one step browser button that takes the hassle out of sharing content with others. This is why I selected Share2Me to launch at the DEMO 07 conference."
The Share2Me platform includes three components that are easy to use, and provide a simple, secure and fun sharing experience on the Web across PCs and mobile devices. Share2Me components include:
o Share2Me Browser Button: The Share2Me Browser Button is a button added
to Internet Explorer or Firefox browsers. Once installed, the Share2Me
button enables users to start sharing digital content in a single click.
The Share2Me button can be downloaded from the Share2Me.com Website and
integrates address books from social network, email and instant messenger
o Share2Me ShareBox: ShareBox is a central storage box that keeps a record
of all the content a Share2Me user shares. Users can log into their
personalized ShareBox from any computer, view all of the "stuff" they've
shared with friends, and manage & update their address list and account
o Share2Me Mobile: Share2Me Mobile will launch later in '07 and gives
end-users the ability to share much more than photos between mobile
devices and PCs. Share2Me Mobile is an easy to use mobile application
that lets people tap into their social networks like MySpace or Facebook
on the go and share pictures, text and more from mobile to PC or from
mobile to mobile.
"There has been a huge shift in the way people communicate and use the Web, especially with younger people," said Nextumi CEO Mike Blackwell. "We are using better communication channels than email in newer ways like social networks such as MySpace, texting on cell phones, and instant messenger. We're sharing photos, videos, text, Web pages, music, and files like never before.
"We're excited to launch our product, Share2Me, which connects or bridges these communication channels allowing any group of people to share digital content using a simple one click process. Share2Me takes what people are already doing and makes it easier to share anything, to anyone, anywhere."
