Paltalk Powers Online Communities With Embeddable Video Chat Rooms

Paltalk Video Chat Rooms Improve Real-Time Interaction Across the Social Web

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - May 19, 2010) -  Paltalk, the leading real-time, video-based community with more than 4 million active members, today announced the availability of two new website tools, the Video Chat Widget and the Embeddable Video Chat Room. Paltalk room owners can now power any website with real-time video chat communication and interaction among their customers, readers, friends or family -- all at no cost.

"Consumers increasingly expect to be able to easily interact with and seamlessly share content across the web," said Jason Katz, CEO of Paltalk. "Paltalk Video Chat Widgets enable bloggers, website authors, and other site owners to easily embed cutting edge video technology into their own sites. This enables the sharing of content across common social networking sites, boosting audience engagement, strengthening audience loyalty and attracting additional site traffic."

Paltalk Express Widgets enable Paltalk members to create a Paltalk room and embed the corresponding video chat widget on their site. With a small footprint, the widget gives visitors a true window into what's going on within the chat room, as well as the ability to seamlessly join the conversation. Fans can share the video chat widget on most social networking sites, including Facebook, Twitter, StumbleUpon and more.

With the Paltalk Embeddable Video Chat Rooms, Paltalk members can create and embed a full-featured, custom video chat room on their site, supporting real-time multi-party communication around blog posts, articles or user generated content. This web based chat can be fully integrated with the website experience. In addition, room owners have a full suite of administrative room controls to help them moderate the chat.

Paltalk's video chat solutions can be easily installed in less than two minutes and are available to all Paltalk members for free.
