Founder Amir Jahanlou and Team Seeks Funding Support via Indiegogo to Develop 'Alacut: Next Gen Social Media for Learning'

Alacut targets learning through short videos & relies on users' opinion to find great content from clutter. It's basically a video filtering service.


Dubai, United Arab Emirates -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/21/2013 -- Ever felt lost while browsing online, a lot of information and too little knowledge? So much distraction. That's where Alacut comes into play. The collective minds of all users will decide on what content should stay online and what should be removed. Alacut pays more attention to the users' votes than the numbers.

In Alacut, a group of programmers, developers, teachers and designers, all have one thing in common, they hate it to have to browse hundreds of video to find one good one. One piece that they could learn from, or perhaps just have a good laugh. So they decided to make Alacut, a video filtering social media.

Alacut is certainly a great idea because
- Less time will be wasted on social media.
- Learning and watching at the same time.
- User votes and ratings would count.
- No hidden content.
- No recorded search history or information.
- No paid content.
- Personal social media with known people.
- Useful art tool for artists.

Having a day job and working on a passion project is wearing this team thin. They ideally want to finish the development, buy servers for a 100 thousand users, add new crazy features, develop the apps for all mobile platforms and have staff on-board for constant maintenance. All funds received from this campaign will pay for these expenses.

This campaign will receive all funds raised even if it does not reach its goal. Funding duration: November 14, 2013 - January 13, 2014 (11:59pm PT).
