Providence, Rhode Island – (The Hosting News) – March 6, 2009 – Until recently, the benefits of Adobe Flex have not been applied to one of the largest forms of social interaction on the web – online discussion forums.
Benefits of Adobe Flex technology in online forums include quicker interaction through real-time updates, the ability to switch between different forums without re-authentication, flexibility of access by way of website embedding, and offline access via Adobe AIR.
The first embeddable free forum hosting service to utilize Adobe Flex technology, sparkBB.com, began accepting private beta invite requests late last month.
Adobe Flex has played an increasingly vital role in the web 2.0 movement; powering rich, interactive Internet applications such as Pikeo online photo sharing, Yahoo! Maps, Yahoo! Web Messenger, and social gaming startups like IILWY.com and Doof.com.
The Internet is moving faster and faster every day. Internet startups are continuing to launch innovative ideas and revolutionary concepts to meet the demands of users and facilitate social interaction and content creation. Forums will continue to play a role in the web 2.0 world as a significant source of user-generated content and social interaction.
sparkBB is a proprietary, embeddable free forum hosting service utilizing Adobe Flex technology. As the only embeddable free forum hosting service with an Adobe Flex core, sparkBB is able to offer free forum hosting services beyond the capabilities of traditional PHP-based systems.
