SheZoom - first video website for women
The first video sharing website for women launched in beta a little over a month ago, with the mission to build an online community around the creation and sharing of intelligent video content. SheZoom offers professional videos featuring experts on topics such as technology, food, money and fashion, as well as member contributed content. Once you join as a member, you can share your own videos, and comment on and rate other videos on the site. The site also links to popular videos on YouTube and other video sharing sites; SheZoom, editors curate this outside content for those of us who are too busy to comb through it all ourselves on a daily basis.
Experts you'll find on SheZoom include Greg Harper (technology consultant), Jeff Morgan and Jodie Morgan (food and wine experts), Dr. Lou Aronne, (obesity expert), and Julie Ross (parenting expert). The site's primary focus, according to founder and CEO, Stacey Artandi, is the community aspect of video sharing: "All of our contributors can relate to one another and have a wealth of knowledge based on their experiences as executives, mothres, runners, sisters, chefs - the list goes on and on. SheZoom enables women to tape into and share this collective knowledge."
SheZoom's original content also includes videos taken on the streets "to see what people are thinking about timely topics such as politics and the green movement, and burning questions like "Can Men and Women Just be Friends?'"
Just Friends . . . Really
