REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 16, 2014) - Banjo, the largest collection of social signals in the world and the leader in coverage of sports, music, news and trending events, today released their most sophisticated rendition to date, version 4.0. Today's launch highlights the company's commitment to global growth and includes a complete code rewrite, redesigned intuitive interface and the ability to locate both live and past events through a simple keyword search.
As the go-to platform for millions of users around the world, Banjo has gained notoriety in the media and with consumers for providing the most relevant and real time access to events and information faster than any other organization on the planet. Banjo learned users tend to consume content from live sporting events during or immediately afterward, while concerts and festivals inspire people to return back days and weeks after they're finished to experience more.
"We are witnessing a transformation in the way content is created and consumed. This perfect storm is being fed by the convergence of three powerful and distinct forces: Mobile + Social + Cloud = Real Time Web," said Damien Patton, CEO and Founder of Banjo. "Banjo has given social media context and this is a game-changer."
Banjo is the Media's New Secret Weapon
With its global repository of indexed content, Banjo's patented technology is being used by news organizations around the world including BBC, NBC, FOX, Sky News and Gannett. When the Paramus Mall Shooting happened in New Jersey, Fox Boston used Banjo to find photos and videos directly from the scene. On Thanksgiving Day, The Today Show turned to Banjo to provide their viewers a real time, multi-dimensional view of the Macy's Day Parade.
Banjo provides real time content discovery by location across multiple social networks and only shows content coming from events, so all that's seen is a beautifully curated feed of relevant photos, videos and content. From a mobile device, Banjo brings the experience of being anywhere in the world through the eyes of the people who are there. Banjo has been featured as the Best Apps of the Year in iTunes, Editors Choice in Google Play and was a featured launch partner for the Samsung Galaxy Gear.
