I was reading my daily dose of social media press releases when I came across a Social Media company based in Los Altos, CA called – Five Across (founded by ex Apple and Adobe developers). Five Across provides social media and community building software. Today, Onstream Media announced a series of “teaming and services agreements” with Five Across. “Ho hum” you say? This is actually pretty interesting.
What the agreement means is that combined service of both companies will allow Five Across’ customers (companies, sports teams, etc.) to add multimedia experiences to their on-line social networking facilities. Developing their own social networking platform is just one way that organizations etc. are keeping in touch with their customers and fans. Adding the ability to upload user-generated content to their websites will positively increase the way that Five Across’ clients reach out/ market to their constituents and the way that those constituents interact with each other.
If anyone else out there besides me was wondering, “Could Five Across somehow be related to Six Apart?” The answer is no. Six Apart’s name was derived from the number of days between the co-founders’ birthdays.
