What is Cellblock?
The official answer is that Cellblock enables instant multimedia publishing across websites, desktops and mobile devices (i.e., your cell phone). And we want you to do it your way.
This means one or many people can be both adding and viewing pictures and videos in a Cellblock via the web, desktop, or mobile device. The instant part means that as soon as the content arrives in a Cellblock, it can be visible to everyone everywhere without page refreshes, new downloads or other impediments.
If you haven't tried the demo Cellblock we've created for you on the home page, you really should. Liv's Cellblock infomercial also gives a pretty good rundown of basic Cellblock features and is a fun watch to boot.
Ultimately, Cellblocks are ubiquitous content albums that can be viewed and contributed to from just about anywhere at the Cellblock owner's discretion.
Of course, users are not locked into one way of using Cellblock. A wide range of options allows for Cellblocks to be configured from the maximum access described above down to a very restrictive scenario where only the Cellblock owner can contribute to and view the Cellblock.
You can even set a preview mode such that arriving content awaits your approval before being published. You can also set a Cellblock to send notifications to email addresses as new content arrives so you can review it within the body of the notification email. And there is more stuff like whitelists, etc.
We're definitely trying to make all this as easy as possible.
But one thing we're not doing, unlike some other sites that suggest you "share with friends" or similar cutesy slogans, is tell our users how or for what purposes they should broadcast and archive their content. Sure, share with friends, but if you want to destroy enemies and play tricks on neighbors, that's ok with us too.
This is because Cellblock.com is part of a much larger picture, a very efficient and reliable Rich Media Infrastructure that is available to anyone via the Cellblock API. With this API, you can add instant multimedia publishing to your own applications at a very low programmatic level, create your own widgets, without any hint of Cellblock branding on your site.
At Cellblock.com, we want you to do instant multimedia publishing your way, not some narrowly defined way of ours. Hence, our goal is to provide an ever expanding range of multimedia publishing tools to serve uses that range from a couple of pictures of the kids on a Myspace page to programmers creating entirely new and independent applications.
If you ever have any idea how our tools can be improved to suit your needs, please let us know at email@example.com
Thanks for stopping by.
