StoryCloud Platform Launches With Beta Release of First Permissions-Based Publishing Solution Giving People Near Total Control of Online Content

Share by StoryCloud Integrates Easy to Use File Sharing, Analytics, Social Networking and ecommerce for Files, Pictures, Music and Media

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 16, 2015) - It has become practically impossible today to maintain control of any content once it is published online. Files are shared around, social networks encourage distribution and content authors have no idea who sees their material or where it goes. Today StoryCloud launches to provide content publishers with unprecedented granular control of how their content is consumed.

The first product, Share By, now in beta, provides user-controlled file transferring for media, videos, music and various file formats with easy to interpret analytics, integrated social networking and ecommerce.

Share By empowers content creators to own their audience and monetize in new and unique ways. The solution utilizes StoryCloud's patent pending permission-based technology, tightly integrated social networking, analytics and ecommerce. Share By allows content providers to easily determine who sees their content, when, and from what location, for example. Other permissions include duration, view or download limits and scheduling time periods for sharing and the devices that are permitted. Once content providers upload content to StoryCloud and determine permissions, they receive a unique URL which can be shared with any online audience, including Facebook and Twitter.

Share By StoryCloud also gives content owners easy-to-interpret analytics that graphically present how their content is accessed and consumed. Content publishers can use the analytics iteratively to build an audience, engage users and better monetize. For example, a singer could combine the StoryCloud pay-per-view and subscription ecommerce model to fully monetize a targeted audience, offering them an exclusive first listen to a new single, within a two hour window, on a particular date and limit it to a specific location.

"StoryCloud is founded on the principle that content belongs to the content creator and publisher. We're providing users and publishers the ability to determine who sees their content, when, where, for how long and on any given device," said Ken Kalb, CEO, StoryCloud. "We then help them fully monetize with pay per view, subscription and advertising models."

StoryCloud technology provides basis for additional solutions

"The Internet and social networks should not determine the destiny of user content. Those rights and privileges belong to the content creator. We've developed Share By as well as the additional coming solutions based on the StoryCloud platform to give control back to the content publishers so they can distribute what they want to whom they want, as well as find new and creative ways to monetize and promote their content," said Kalb.

StoryCloud is well funded by private investors. Founder Ken Kalb is a serial entrepreneur who has successfully founded and sold several previous technology companies.
