ECDC's Vir2o to Launch its JoinMe™ Social Network in the UK, Brazil and Nigeria New Features Expected to Add Content Sharing, Real-Time Interactivity and Enhanced Privacy to the Company's Vir2o Live Community Platform
ATLANTA, May 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- East Coast Diversified Corporation (OTCQB: ECDC), a holding corporation with a diversified group of technology companies, announced today that its social media operation and proprietary JoinMe™ technology is expected to be made available to users in Brazil, Nigeria and the UK when it opens the platform to users in all three on July 1st, 2013.
"Our JoinMe technology and social media platform is our key property in this space and we plan to introduce it to a global audience. Once deployed, JoinMe will allow users to connect interactively across the globe in a way that has never been done before," said Kayode Aladesuyi, ECDC's Chief Executive Officer. "JoinMe is designed to fundamentally change how people interact and engage one another as it puts people in the same place, at the same event, and sharing content interactively, in real time, regardless of their location."
JoinMe allows users on the Company's Vir2o Live Community platform to engage interactively, whether shopping, watching movies or sharing photos, bringing two or more people together in a meaningful way. Users can provide or limit access to different categories of content or folders via Vir2o's enhanced privacy tools. Friends invited to connect with one another are not just there as viewers or observers, but can also functionally maneuver through a friend's site content simultaneously when access has been provided.
"The beta site has given us good insight into our users' desire for a more engaging social media platform that facilitates real-time interaction with friends and family," said Andrej Jeremic, Vice President, Business Development.
Vir2o intends to offer additional features to its users in and across all markets, including ecommerce, music services, and movie and video rental services. Based on development timelines and schedules, ECDC may launch these services in different phases of the introduction of the platform to each market.
