See it, Love it, Save it, Share it at 20blinks: The First Online ID Network Launches out of Beta
Build Your Own Multimedia Online Identity to Express Yourself, Share Your Lifestyle and Build Tastemaker Status through Photos, Music, Books, Movies and More; Share Collections with Friends and Like-Minded Peers in Real-Time with BlinkIt Button to Save Your Latest Finds to 20blinks
AMSTERDAM, April 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/-- Discover, save and share the best of the web with 20blinks, the first online multimedia ID network launching out of Beta next year, gives users the ability to express themselves, find new things and draw inspiration from people who share the same interests, lifestyles and hobbies.
Born out of Amsterdam, known worldwide for its contemporary art and music scene and home to some of the hottest DJs on the planet, 20blinks lets users create their own unique collections of favorite music, movies, style, art -- virtually anything that interests them -- and share their collections with friends and other 20blinks members. Unlike the text-based profiles of social networks such as Facebook and Twitter, 20blinks users can create an online identity that captures their personality, express themselves and communicate through photos, audio and video. Discover the hottest new music, the latest in contemporary art or photography, the must-read buzzworthy book or inspiring travel destinations by perusing the collections of other 20blinks users.
The site is quickly building a loyal following of "blinkers" who are on the cutting edge of the latest in art, lifestyle, culture and fashion. The site already boasts more than 40,000 page views per day since its beta launch earlier this year.
"20blinks is a whole new way to express your personality to the world and discover new things that inspire you most," said Bastiaan Zwaan, founder of 20blinks. "No other social platform lets you pull together images, video and more to truly capture and showcase the essence of what makes you who you are and also expand your horizons in the process."
At the heart of 20blinks is its unique philosophy that the vast majority of web content is best ranked subjectively -- by the users and consumers of content. This approach lets 20blinks users create their own network of friends and family to share content they've cultivated themselves and become inspired through people they know, rather than the impersonal, text-based algorithms of traditional search engines. The result is subjective content ranking that creates a real-time associative search environment based on the organic and authentic perspective of 20blinks users.
20blinks makes it easy to create and add to your online collections in real time with the BlinkIt button. This tiny bookmarklet that resides on any web browser lets you drop any type of item from any website into any 20blinks collection with a single click from anywhere on the web. Instantly create collections of movies, books, product wish lists and even travel itineraries by simply "blinking" your favorites to your 20blinks collection.
Most of the content posted to 20blinks is linked back to its original source, which makes it easy for those viewing your collections to get more information about each one and creates traffic back to that source -- a valuable new pathway to discovery for up-and-coming artists, musicians, photographers and more.
20blinks helps you discover, save and share what matters most to you on the web, express yourself, find new things and get inspired by other people who share the same lifestyle and interests. The first online multimedia ID network, 20blinks lets users "blink" images, movie and audio files to their 20blinks collection -- anything from design ideas, artwork, movies you forgot, travel destinations, books worth reading, creative concepts, vintage design and more. Developed and headquartered in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 20blinks is privately owned with support from angel investors. For more information, visit http://www.20blinks.com.
