Review: Share video moments and status updates with Keek for iOS

Connect with users via this smartly-crafted, mobile-focused social network.

While social media has made a big leap in recent years to the mobile platform, very few of the sites that are increasingly accessed via mobile devices were originally created with mobile in mind. Facebook, in particular, was a very-desktop oriented network until recently. So there are a number of tools like Keek hitting the App Store every day, attempting to capitalize on the growing trend and offer a mobile-oriented experience. Keek does a good job in many ways, and while it is still a new platform and growing, it has potential.

Like many mobile social networks, Keek is built around the camera. A Keek is a short, 35-second video you record of anything in your life. Record it with the big green record button on the screen and then share to Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr. It will also be added to your Keek account, which you can share with followers and subscribers to your account. Add new people by inviting them from other social networks, or follow them and grow your network. The network is still growing, but with a robust search system, there are quite a few Keeks with anywhere between 2,000 and 6,000 likes for the top performers. Remember, these are very short videos, so the Keeks are usually confessions, how-tos, introductions, or showcases of a new area or hot spot.

Keek smartly integrates other social media tools to leverage their user base and offers quick uploads and speedy server response times. Because it is growing quickly, is a great place to connect with fellow mobile users who have short videos to share. Faster than e-mail or even Facebook and more intuitive than some other video-sharing tools, Keek has a lot of potential.
