Connecting the world through video

SAN FRANCISCO, June 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Bibbil, a Silicon Valley startup, officially launched its social video platform yesterday to help people easily connect around the world through a magical video experience. With the leading video communication software only capturing 170 MM monthly active users out of a 700 MM user market, Bibbil seeks to fill the gap. With fans in over 40 countries in less than 24 hours after its recent launch, Bibbil is reaching Bibbilievers across the globe.

"People need an enjoyable and beautiful way to connect with the ones they care about," said David J. Phillips, CEO and Co-Founder of Bibbil. "With Bibbil, you can now get what you want from video chat – simple, fast, and fun connections to all of your friends and family around the world. There is no downloading, installing, or running of a separate desktop application required. Once inside Facebook, the user is merely two clicks away from video enchantment - and it's free." The feedback from the community has been positive. Hermione Way, Director at The Next Web, even broadcasted to the world that Facebook should acquire Bibbil.

Bibbil uses game dynamics to reward users and give them access to new features. Starting out on the service a Bibbilittle, a user, earns bibbills (virtual points) to unlock new features on their way to the top status of Bibbillionaire. Features include group video chat, party video chat, live broadcasting, and more. The team is also preparing to release its new platform solution that integrates across many mobile devices.
