(The Hosting News) – Spling.com officially launched to the public on Thursday, April 7 and has generated unprecedented traffic during its official launch weekend. Eliminating trivial status updates, Spling.com gathers, sorts, and creates a compilation of media from across the internet in a social atmosphere. In its first four days, Spling.com generated nearly a million hits, with over 5,000 unique visitors and over 125,000 page views, making it one of the fastest growing social media sites ever to launch.
“We are launching something exciting and different,” said CEO and Founder Billy McFarland. “Spling.com’s approach to sharing a wide range of popular media is simple and straightforward. After joining, users become broadcasters hosting their own virtual channel, using Spling to draw on the best of the internet. Their media is then gathered and sorted onto their personal page in a microblog format. We are new, we are different, and most importantly we capture internet users’ thirst for entertainment.”
The founders of Spling.com recently won the 2011 Venture Plan Competition sponsored by the Greater Susquehanna Keystone Innovation Zone, Bucknell University, Bloomsburg University, and Susequehanna University. Spling.com was launched simultaneously on 19 college campuses and is being actively promoted by 35 campus representatives.
