As many may know, Qik has started to work with other web 2.0 applications.  This is very important for Qik users, because now Qik is even more fun to use.  Now your live videos can be seen by more and more people.  This is also important to the Qik company because Qik is becoming more popular by the minute when integrating with other web 2.0 applications.  These are just some of the numerous applications that Qik related to. 


Facebook

Qik enables you to go live on your Facebook profile.  Facebook is a free-access website that is owned and operated by Facebook. The people can join and connect with other people. People can also add new friends and send them messages and update their profiles. Qik is working hard to be able to stream live video to Facebook for all of your friends that are on your facbook community. Your friends will be able to chat live to you on your phone, which is a feature that Facebook is well known for using.  The person taking the video on their phone will be able to talk to the person that is chatting with them on facebook.  This technique is essentially the same way in which Qik streams live video to the Qik website, except it will be streaming live video to Facebook.  Currently, Facebook members can embed their Qik videos on their Facebook account.  It is the same way in which Facebook members put regular video on their accounts.  Enjoy Qik members!  


Seesmic

Another application that Qik enables you to work with is Seesmic and is actually a  technology partner of Qik. Seesmic is a website, which provides any information, text, graphics, videos,  and other materials.  The information, text, graphics and other material are created or provided by people which appear on the Seesmic website.  Seesmic also provides the ability to create, post, and playback videos on third party sites via the use of their video comment plug-in (www.seesmic.com).  Seesmic allows members to post Qik videos on your Seesmic account.  This allows people that have Seesmic accounts to view your live streamed videos and have live video conversations directly from Qik (Qik.com/info/partners).  Qik is stepping up and becoming more popular.    


MySpace 

Qik enables you to go live on MySpace. MySpace is a place to connect with freinds and you can find people you know and people you may not know.  Facebook is quite similar to MySpace and one will notice that some features, such chatting live, are important.  Chatting live Through myspace you can share with your friends video, video clips, and music videos. Qik can stream live video to myspace just like it can stream live video to facbook.


YouTube

Qik and YouTube have worked diligently to integrate eachothers' technologies, as they are have joined forces together.  Once a video has been streamed to Qik, the Qik website saves the video.  Members of Qik that have accounts with YouTube, which is easy and painless to apply, can post their videos onto YouTube.  YouTube is a world wide website which people can post videos they have made either on their video cameras, mobile phones, or computers.  Viewers from all around the world are free to watch these videos that are shared, which can now be streamed from Qik. 


Mogulus 

In short, Mogulus is a live, broadcast application on the internet with a browser of its own, which people can form live, scheduled, and on-demand internet television to share anywhere on the world wide web.  Many have guessed the extreme abilities of Qik.  Qik and Mogulus have become partners.  Qik can stream live videos to this live, broadcast application to share with anyone who has a Mogulus account.  Mogulus is so happy with Qik that their CEO gave a rewarding comment. 

"Qik is our primary partner to enable our producer to broadcast live from a phone to their Mogulus channel. Together we provide the most comprehensive LIVE broadcasting solution enabling Producers to broadcast live from any device, anywhere," said CEO of Mogulus Max Haot (http://www.qik.com/info/partners). 


Twitter

Twitter is a "social newtorking and micro-blogging service" which allows its members to notify friends or family of updates on the Twitter website.  These updates that Twitter allows you to notify people of are text-based messages.  These text-based messages are limited to 140 characters long, but most can get their point across just fine by this limit.  Think of Twitter like a bird tweeting or communicating with other birds through some kind of language.  Twitter's tweets are those text-based messages that are sent to the Twitter website for people to be notified.  Qik is actually partners with Twitter as well.  Qik members use Tweeter to notify their watchers when they start to stream live video onto the internet.  This very convenient for Qik and Tweeter members. 


Ovi by Nokia


Qik is also a partner with Share On Ovi by Nokia. Qik has been invited by Nokia to be a Forum Nokia Pro Partner also. Ovi is the Nokia site with free storage for video or photos as well as having the ability to share the videos with others through the web. Ovi is absolutely free for all those wanting to sign up and take advantage of what they have to offer. In addition to being a site that has unlimited storage for your video and photo needs, Ovi supports many different media file types as well.
