Mobile social video network Keek has announced that a new private messaging function has been added to its social video platform. Keek users can now chat instantly via video or text with up to 36 people at once. This new feature is currently available on the latest version of the Keek iPhone app and keek.com. Keek Private Messages can be sent worldwide at no charge. Users can add contacts to their private conversations via SMS, email or other networks, see online status, send messages to users offline and more. People can now also share keeks privately with other Keek users or groups.
“The Keek community has an exciting new way to connect with each other,” says Isaac Raichyk, Founder and CEO of Keek. “In addition to sharing keeks publicly, users can now stay in touch privately with their family and friends.”
The new Keek Private Messages feature utilizes proprietary technology developed internally by Keek. This advanced system achieves new levels of speed compared to similar services and supports an unprecedented number of users chatting simultaneously on a mobile device.
The release of Keek Private Messages occurs during a thriving period for the social video network. In the last 30 days, Keek has been the #1 social networking app in 30 countries. More than 250,000 people are joining Keek daily. In April, Keek served more than 3.5 billion pageviews; users posted more than 5 million keeks and watched more than 600 million videos.
