Launched in March 2012, Keek.com has grasped the attention of teens all over the world by introducing a concept cross between Youtube and Twitter, where the maximum length is about 30 seconds. Users have subscribers and/or followers; videos can be liked, favorite’d and commented on. It is very interactive and short to the point.
The speed at which a person gains an audience is astronomical. I couldn’t find the user when I came to make this post, however with only 4 Keeks (or video posts) she had 40,000+ followers and 10,000+ subscribers after 6 weeks of being on Keek.
Some of the Keek’ers have a base of 500,000+ followers.
What makes it confusing and also interesting is the content of the videos. There isn’t any real content. The Keeks sometimes make no sense or have any meaning, but the users fall in love with the Keeker and subscribe and follow, and it continues to grow.
I only know that a large number of Keekers are very young (under 18), even as far 12. I also found a 12 year old with 100,000 followers. (!!!)
What the heck is going on?
