Holy Roller, Batman, apparently social networking has gotten a little
too risque for some. Since language is not censored on sites like
Twitter and Facebook, Christians soldiers are marching onward in a
pilgrimage to clean up the social media space, with a beta launch of
Cross.tv. While the social networking space is getting a little
crowded, Cross.tv is one of the first to focus on a faith-based
approach to reach out to prospective network members.
And their first commercial, entitled: "My.Space.Book.Flick.Tube" was recently awarded the prestigious Silver Telly Award.
Their subsequent follow-up commercial: "Around the World in 30 Seconds" showcases the number of languages that are shared on the network.
Andreas KisslingerFounded by Andreas Kisslinger and Stefan Jager, currently residing in Vienna, Austria, cross.tv is quickly becoming the social network of choice for many Christians around the world.
"We allow people around the world to be easily united on a faith-based community platform in a way that has not been done before anywhere to our knowledge," said Kisslinger. "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 find out about others."
Users are free to upload videos, pictures, publish blogs, add friends and develop their own sub-networks for their families, churches, ministries or projects. They can also communicate with friends and members instantaneously through the cross.box tool, which allows instant message functions and media management.
So for all those faith-based souls looking to be saved online, Cross.tv might be just your new place of worship. Share your God-given humanity and spiritual experiences with others in a network that allows you to communicate in over 22 languages (hopefully not in a Tower of Babel context)! Onward, Christian soldiers!
