Flyx, on Friday, launched its social network for those users who stream content online. The company said that its social network would try to aid viewers who are struggling to select a content for streaming. According to Flyx, there are too many streaming services which provide users with too many choices for streaming. However, the company feels that the viewers are missing out on a “cross-platform service that aggregates content and provides quick and targeted recommendations.” Flyx said that its network would reduce the time viewers normally take to select a content to stream by displaying recommendations from its users’ friends and contacts.
Social Network for Streamers
Further, Flyx is said to enable users to create a cross-platform watch-list along with a private list for its users to mark the content that has already been viewed.
“Watching movies and shows has a huge impact in our social life and surprisingly none of the current social media captures it well enough,” Shashank Singh, CEO and Co-founder of Flyx, said in the release. “FLYX is inherently very social and fun to use.”
