DropShots.com Declared as Number One Site for Family Video Sharing on the Internet
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

SAN DIEGO, Jan. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Recent analysis concludes that DropShots.com is the number one private video sharing service on the Internet. DropShots is the result of a three-year university study out of UCSD proving how technology can be used to improve human relationships and strengthen the emotional bonds between people. Now a commercially available service, DropShots is the leading personal video sharing service online hosting over 150,000 video clips and over 2 million photos with a staggering growth rate of over 35 percent each month.

By contrast to other video sharing services such as YouTube, Vimeo and Sharkle, which are predominantly filled with publicly exposed video clips, much of which are repetitious commercial and copyrighted content (music videos, TV or movie clips, and funny advertisements), DropShots is used primarily by families sharing personal experiences with a private circle of friends and family.

DropShots users are typically sharing the sights and sounds of their newborn baby, their child's first steps, graduations, weddings or family vacations. These personal experiences are then shared with a private circle of friends and family. "For the budding filmmaker or musician looking for public Internet fame there are other services that serve that purpose. For families and friends looking to keep in touch and privately share the intimate experiences of their lives, DropShots is what they are looking for," says DropShots CEO Darren Hardy.

"I was away on a business trip when my daughter took her first step. My wife was able to capture it on video and immediately upload it to our [DropShots] site. I saw it within minutes of it happening! I then took a video of myself cheering on Lola from my hotel room and uploaded it. My wife played it for her and she instantly propped up, pointed at the computer screen, smiled and giggled "Da-da." Thank goodness for technology like yours!" says Brett Lamontague - Houghton, Michigan

Designed around what is called a "relational technology" DropShots.com is more than a place to post and show personal videos and photos, it is a destination for friends and family to connect, converse and visually keep in touch with those they care about.

"We use it [DropShots] to update our family and friends on our baby's life and how she is changing and growing. It was easy to use and our family wanted to watch our baby grow. It is a great way to keep in touch with loved ones and it really has brought our family closer together. We love it!" says Jennifer Fleming of Conception Bay South, Newfoundland Canada

DropShots.com was engineered to be extremely simple and effortless to use. To view, comment or interact, there is no registration or login required. Every process: uploading, sharing, sending, and writing comments are always done in one-click or less. As a result, DropShots.com is easy to use for all members of the family -- even grandma and grandpa!
