We’re just receiving word that former American Idol judge, Paula Abdul, has joined live-streaming video service Hang w/. The star reportedly joined the network on her birthday and celebrated by sharing the moment with fans around the world, in the only way the app allows you – live.
“We are incredibly excited to have Paula on board,” said Andrew Maltin, CEO. “She’s an iconic artist and we believe her fans will really enjoy Hanging with her live.”
Launched back in March of this year, Hang w/ lets you Hang w/ (with) the world’s most-favorite people who also have Hang w/ installed on their smartphone – allowing you then to share live real-time video sent from one smartphone to many, from anywhere and at anytime. Sure, Hang w/ enables celebrities to Hang w/ their fans – but it can (perhaps) also give you the chance to become a celebrity yourself.
Starting your own channel with Hang w/ is as simple as creating an account. You’ll then have license to broadcast whatever you want, wherever you want, however you want. Going live will allow you to interact with other users of the social network, and each time you make an appearance you will also be helping to grow your own dedicated fan base.
Hang w/ is a FREE download from the iTunes App Store. The app has been designed specifically for use with Apple’s iPhone, and weighs-in at just 13.7 MB.
Full press release follows.
