(The Hosting News) – With the transition from Web 2.0 to the Social Web, people are looking at ways to better find, discover and engage with information and content – those from friends, family and colleagues to their favorite sports teams, local news and things that matter most to each person. The new Layers app for Google Chrome is that next step.
The Layers app for Google Chrome transforms the experience of surfing through the social web into an elegant, visual flow, providing users a simple way to get updates, view videos and share content in one format.
“Social media has changed the way we use the Internet, yet the web itself has remained the same,” said Marcos Cuevas, CEO of Layers. “With Layers, we are changing the way people look at their social networks, and changing the experience to mirror other pleasurable activities, such as perusing a book or flipping through your TV channels.”
Just as people naturally flip through magazines or channel surf to find things that interest them, Layers gives people the online version of channel surfing for what most interests them, ranging from their Facebook and Twitter networks to content through RSS feeds to sharing and viewing what most interests their friends and family.
The introduction of the Layers for Google Chrome application represents Layers’ mission of making using the social web a more enjoyable experience.
Layers Beta for Google Chrome™ is your personalized social channel. Layers offers an elegant, fluid way to see what your friends are sharing on social networks, letting all your networks flow together. With Layers you can share, discover and interact with everything you care about all in one place.
Layers is one of a new breed of services that represent the next logical step in the evolution of the Web. The company, founded in 2008, is headquartered in Barcelona with offices in New York and San Francisco and has a loyal, rapidly-growing user base who are seeing the Web in a whole new way with Layers. Layers is lead by a solid management team with proven experience in new media and the Internet business.
