Paltalk Introduces Free, Personalized "SuperIM URL" Links for Video Chat

Free, Individual URLs Make It Easier Than Ever to Connect With Loved Ones Anywhere, Anytime

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - February 17, 2010) - Paltalk, the leading real-time, video-based community with more than 4 million active members, today announced the availability of free SuperIM URLs. SuperIM URLs are extensions of and are available now at no cost to Paltalk members. SuperIM URLs are personalized links specifically for video chat that make connecting with others online as easy and genuine as talking face-to-face. Paltalk users simply send their personalized SuperIM URLs to friends and family so they can chat with video, voice and text from anywhere without the hassle of downloading a separate application or signing into the same social network.

"We want to make it as easy as possible for people to connect with friends and family," said Jason Katz, Paltalk CEO. "Paltalk's personalized links serve as a home base for our members, so friends and family can easily access their page and engage with them through text, voice and video without downloading an entirely new platform on their own."

Unlike other video chat providers that only allow six person video conversations at a time, Paltalk powers free video chats with up to 10 people at once. Regardless of which network, browser or IM service a Paltalk user's friends or family might use, they only need to remember that user's SuperIM URL to connect for a multimedia or multi-person video, audio or text chat, eliminating the need for additional software downloads.

Paid subscribers can choose to customize their SuperIM URL with something other than their nickname. Custom vanity SuperIM URLs look like this: To obtain a SuperIM URL, anyone can download and register at

Additional Features of SuperIM URLs include:

--  High resolution video for all participants
--  The ability to engage in standard, one-on-one IM conversations or to
    join incoming IM requests with conversations already in progress
--  Ability to share SuperIM URLs quickly and easily with address book

Paltalk has been at the forefront of online communications for more than a decade. The company was the first to combine voice and video into instant messaging, as well as the first video chat provider to create video groups. Paltalk is the only company with the ability to scale for any size chat rooms (one-to-one or thousands-to-thousands). Paltalk averages 100,000 people simultaneously video chatting at any time on any given day.
