Social networks like Twitter and Facebook have helped to raise awareness of content online, and made it easier for videos to go viral and be seen by the masses. But betting only on social might not be the best strategy for apps focused on video discovery.
Shelby.tv is now open to the public, making its social video recommendations service available to all. And it’s doing so with the introduction of an iOS app that will bring the same type of video viewing experience available on its website to the iPad and iPhone.
Pandora has established itself as the leading personalized radio service online. A new breed of services is now challenging Pandora by mashing up videos from around the web to personalized video streams, all without spending an arm and a leg on licensing.
