Seekopia.com: Online social network

. July 24, 2009 . 0 Comments

Seekopia.com, a new social network for bloggers today celebrated being online for 100 days since launching last April. Still in Beta, Seekopia is currently advertising to a very limited audience but has nonetheless already attracted close to 400 bloggers and over 750 posts have been submitted to date.

Asked about the numbers, Seekopia founder Mr. Marc von Brockdorff said: “While the numbers are nowhere close to other online networks like Facebook or Twitter, we are completely on target considering we have chosen a very limited market for our Beta release. In fact, I would probably say the feedback has been even better than expected. Social Networking for bloggers is something relatively new and we believe it’s the next step in the Blogging world.”

Seekopia allows bloggers to start their own blog or import an existing one for free. However, its primary feature is an online blog magazine which allows users to view posts from multiple blogs customized to their preferences. “The aim is to create a platform on which users can find blogs easy and quickly by choosing what topics they enjoy reading. Instantly, Seekopia will customize itself to become a blog with several posts from several blogs, all related to the topics of your choice.” Mr. Marc von Brockdorff admits that there is still a lot of work to be done but firmly believes that Seekopia is moving in the right direction.

Another benefit Seekopia provides is its shared advertising system. Bloggers who sign up may advertise on each and every Seekopia blog. Unlike other PPC companies which charge per click, advertising on Seekopia is free of charge and your adverts are shown based on how much you have written on your blog, how often you write, and the overall quality of your posts.

Social Media expert Michael Azzopardi commented “In essence, this is changing the way advertising works online. It’s a bold move and no doubt it will take a while for its real benefits to appear. I don’t think anyone has attempted anything similar before so it will be interesting to see how it turns out.”

Mr. Marc von Brockdorff confirmed Seekopia will launch officially by the end of the year but several other features are in the pipeline and should be online shortly. He concluded by saying: “We take our feedback very seriously – In fact, I’d say around one forth of our features were suggestions by members.”
