Ever felt like there were too many steps to sharing your media online with your friends? Wished you could share all your favorite items such as videos, pictures, blog posts and more in one convenient place? Then iGliss may be just what you’ve been looking for.
Labeled as a “media content management service”, iGliss has just relaunched its redesigned beta that allows people to better manage their uploaded and shared media. You can choose to do the old uploading by hand style if you like, or you can download their PC content manager that will locate your media for you and automatically upload it, taking all the human interaction out of it for you. Once up, other users can search the site for your content by using the tags and descriptions, and then share it with even more people.
Besides sharing your own content, you can also share videos you enjoy on YouTube, RSS feeds of your favorite sites, basically anything that can be shared on the web can be shared here.
Overall, I can see it being somewhat useful for folks do share a heck of a lot, but for people like me who just aren’t into sharing every video they come across, it just won’t serve much of a purpose. I was also a bit disturbed by my inability to find privacy settings for what you share. This isn’t to say they aren’t there, but after spending 30-minutes looking around, I was unable to locate them, and this would worry me about sharing something you may not have meant to.
It’s worth a look, with a slick interface, but unless you are a heavy sharer, and careful in what you share, it may not be for you.
