GodTube is Back with a Bang
Move over YouTube. Step aside Break.com. GodTube, the world’s largest and most popular Christian video-sharing and social networking platform on the Web, has risen from the ashes and is back with a whole new look.
After the site’s original launch back in 2007, over 2.7 million users have flocked to GodTube every month to upload, share and watch the latest in Christian music, sermon and inspirational videos from around the world.
And now, after the successful launch of Tangle.com in 2009 (formerly GodTube), the site has returned under its original moniker, much to the approval of millions of users and fans, at www.godtube.com. Users may now visit Tangle, separate from GodTube, at www.tangle.com.
A media release by A Larry Ross Communications reports that, since its return to the web, GodTube has already “realized more than 400,000 unique visitors, indicating the viral community’s excitement,” according to ChristianToday.com.
Trey Bowles, CEO of Big Jump Media (parent company to both Tangle and GodTube), said “There is a great amount of brand loyalty to GodTube.com from the visitors to the site and we plan to grow the site offering and continue to provide a place online for Christians to come find, view and share encouraging and inspirational content across the Internet.”
Bowles also added, “After three years of building online media communities for the Christian marketplace, we have learned how to measurably identify ways to better serve our target audience and continue to expand our growth into the Christian community.”
The new GodTube boasts a fresh, bold and professionally appealing homepage, along with several new video categories, including comedy, cute, inspiration, music, news and even sports. Upon visiting the site, users will be instantly greeted with the featured video of the day and options to share it via their social networking communities such as Facebook, Twitter, Digg and StumbleUpon.com. And, as always, there is an option to e-mail the video to a friend.
As far as faith-based video networking and sharing goes, it just doesn’t get any better than this.
GodTube CEOs and administrators also plan to incorporate several new features in the future, including user video uploading options and a content flagging system to “help ensure a safe environment for the entire community.” And rumor has it users will even be able to create and manage their GodTube account via Facebook.
“We recognized the unfiltered and unmonitored content available on other sites and we wanted to provide an atmosphere where families can feel safer about their viewing choices,” said Bowles.
“We will continue to focus on providing tools and distribution opportunities that will unite the body of Christ online through both the largest social networking platform in the world, tange.com, and the world’s most popular Christian video sharing site, GodTube.com.”
