First Faith-Based Multilingual Social Network Launched

BRATISLAVA, SLOVAKIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 12, 2008) -

Editors note: A photo and a video are included with this release.

The first faith-based multilingual online community has launched in time for Christmas. Providing an online community for people who want to impact their world, the new www.cross.tv combines the best of social networking with high quality HD streaming and a multilingual communications platform; making it the first faith-based social media community in the world to support multilingual interaction and communication.

Not only can users upload videos, upload pictures, publish blogs, add friends and even develop their own sub-networks for their families, churches, ministries or projects. They can also communicate with others and raise awareness of different causes using cross.tv's unique "cross pollination" functionalities which allows them to publish content in multiple languages.

Members do not need to know and speak the English language to join the site; the unique communications model allows members and visitors to access the site in 22 languages. Registered members can communicate with other members in their own native language through the use of an advanced language filtering system.

Operating from within Bratislava, www.cross.tv is quickly proving to be more than a social network. Founded by Andreas Kisslinger and Stefan Jager, Cross.tv enables individuals, families, faith groups, ministries and organisations from across the globe to connect in an online space that offers quality faith-based content in their own language, monitored round the clock by specially assigned editors.

"Being truly global, cross.tv currently exists in 22 languages and every visitor sees cross.tv in his/her own language," says Andreas Kisslinger, co-founder of www.cross.tv. "Members can save their own language preferences, choosing which video, audio and text content he/she would like to be shown in their language.

"We allow people around the world to be easily united on a faith-based community in a way that has not been done before anywhere. Users are able to post and read in their own native language and at the same time connect with thousands around the world, present their own ideas and projects, as well as finding out about others. The wide range of functionality and media sharing opportunities enables ministries to reach more people in a more efficient (and statistically trackable) way and people around the world to share their God given creativity and audio-visualized ideas."

Unlike other social networking websites such as Facebook and MySpace, having a dedicated online content monitoring team helps cross.tv offer a safe and clean community that can be accessed by all ages. All uploaded content are screened to ensure they maintain high standards and conform to family-friendly values.
