Pleasanton, CA (Scicasts) – LeapFish, a Silicon Valley search and social media startup, unveiled the new multi-media and real-time search, communication, and sharing platform that provides users with an easy and personalized way to experience and share the traditional and real-time Web.
The LeapFish search experience gives users the ability to manage the two things they do most often online, according to the company, which is search and share. Real-time and social media are major movements in today's web scape and Ben Behrouzi, founder and CEO of LeapFish, believes that it is time that users are "empowered with an ability to share to the real-time and social Web when they are most engaged - while searching the Web."
The new search platform combines the ability to search and share real-time and traditional content in any media format through a single interface across a range of different sites, such as Twitter, Facebook and Digg.
"Aside from the Web's growing size and variety there is an emerging duality of "real-time" and "traditional," which now requires a completely different search experience. One that includes both the content and the "contributor" in the search experience, such that both traditional and real-time searching and sharing are integrated seamlessly in our use of this Living Web," said Behrouzi.
The new LeapFish search experience offers its users a real-time search engine, a customizable personal homepage, more multi-media results from the entire Web and the ability to share any piece of content found online.
