This is building a video status platform that will help you keep up to date with your friends 12 seconds at a time. Lauryn

12secondstv was developed by a team of people that thought it would be more entertaining to do video status updates rather than a regular typed update. The developers found through research that 12 seconds is the perfect time to record a video before it becomes boring to other viewers. The application works by recording a video of up to 12 seconds on your phone or on your computer. You may not record more than a 12 second video. You then post your video onto their website. This application can be used alongside with Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, and many other sites like these. It's a fast and fun way to update your status for your friends to see.       --Rachel Wright

 II. How "Application Title" Relates to other Applications

-Questions to consider: How does this application compare to the competitors? What are some unique uses of this specific application?

12sec relates to other applications such as Facebook , Myspace, and Twitter by connecting to them and posts on all of the linked accounts at the same time. One unique feature that is used is the video length is capped off at 12 seconds, which forces people to get to the point of their post and weeds out the long talkers. -Ryan

Users can view 12second videos on their phones. There are applications for the iPhone that users can download. This allows users to view friends and family members video anytime and anywhere. Meg

The iPhone does not allow for upload of video through apps, but through the iPhone app for an iPhone user can use 3 pictures with audio to upload a version of video to - Michael -Ryan( to start, will expand later)

12secondstv is a cross between Twitter and Skype. When dealing with Skype, 2 people have to be on the internet at the same time to be able to talk to one another. Also, you can record a video of yourself with your phone. This would require internet access though. This is something that Skype is not capable of doing. Twitter allows its member to let their followers know what they are doing. 12secondstv is unique because it allows you to take a 12 second video of yourself doing whatever you are doing. You can show people what you are doing, or simply just tell others what you are doing. This allows people to see your face when they are on the internet. You don't have to be online at the same time your friend is for them to see you doing or saying whatever it is you feel you want to.      --Rachel Wright

The great thing about is that anyone can view the website. In other words, if you have access to the internet then it is available for you to use. I watched a 12 second video on the website of someone from China. This just proves that it is something that is becoming a new popular site to use all around the world. I believe that with the right promotions, this site will be the new way everyone updates their status.  -Rachel Wright
