iFramed will pay users for posting their pictures and videos on social media sites such as FacebookTM, InstagramTM, TwitterTM and YouTubeTM
MIAMI, Aug. 2, 2017 /CNW/ - Miami-based United American Corp (UnitedCorp), (OTC: UAMA) announced today the launch of iFramed, its dedicated social media mobile posting gateway. It also announced its continuation of enforcement of patent infringement against Snap Inc. (NYSE: SNAP) related to Snap's use of geo-location based filters which violate core proprietary iFramed technologies.
A video demonstration of iFramed is available at: http://iframed.com/videos/iframed-for-social-media/
iFramed is the world's first and only social media posting gateway and next generation social network content sharing platform. It is a simple to use app which provides its users the ability to simultaneously post their content to multiple social media accounts and for them to be paid anywhere from fraction of a cent up to hundreds of dollars per post when they apply sponsored filters to their pictures and videos which are offered to them on the basis of their geo location.
iFramed is currently available for download at the Apple APP STORE and on Google Play.
Users will soon be able to receive cash credits for posting branded content paid for by advertisers through iFramed on personal accounts with such social media services such as, FacebookTM, InstragramTM, TwitterTM and YouTubeTM. They will be able to request payment any time directly from the iFramed app via check or prepaid credit card. iFramed utilizes a simple business model of sharing advertiser revenue with its users.
"We truly believe that iFramed is the future of advertising on social media", stated Benoit Laliberté, President of UnitedCorp, "Finally social media users will be able benefit financially from the content they generate and advertisers will be able to have a direct and respectful relationship with their customers."
UnitedCorp will also continue its enforcement action against Snap and the use of its "Geofilters". "Geofilters" use the geolocation of social media users in order to provide on demand insertion of external content in the form of a frame or overlay on pictures or videos which directly infringes on several claims held by the iFramed patent. UnitedCorp is seeking remedies in the form of monetary damages for past infringement, as well as injunctive relief prohibiting Snap Inc. from continuing to infringe on the patent. It will also continue to develop and assert rights from its broadly filed global patent portfolio, which claims the benefit of an early priority date of January 3, 2014, in key jurisdictions including, but not limited to, the United States, China, Australia, Japan, India, Canada and throughout Europe.
iFramed is a dedicated Internet social media posting gateway and user/advertiser relationship based global marketing system with a user app that works with most popular social media sites. With iFramed, users are able to post photo or video content to their favorite social media which contains the branding options offered to them based on their demographic profile including geo‐positioning. They are then paid for posting this branded content by the advertiser through iFramed. iFramed believes this "paid to post" approach is much more effective than any current system including banner ads or where advertisers are charged on a "per click" basis. Sponsored content is posted in real time and without annoying pop ups or ads that need to be viewed or closed. Based on available advertiser campaigns, the amount a user is paid for posting is based on their specific demographic, their popularity with other users and how advertisers have set up their iFramed campaign. This can range from fraction of cents to over one hundred dollars per post.
iFramed provides advertisers with an efficient and effective tool to promote their brand, product and message. It also provides its users with a personal digital copyright watermark on all pictures and videos in a form of a frame/filter style with the sponsor logos and/or messages.
iFramed is the ecosystem that completes the missing link between social media sites, their users and the advertisers by allowing advertisers to more closely target their message and for users to share in the monetization of social media. iFramed changes the rules for promotion on social media as it is a targeted approach which is non‐offensive to users because it empowers and rewards both users and advertisers. iFramed also seizes on the emotion of an individual's postings and the branding becomes an implied endorsement unlike current ads which are detached from the users.
UnitedCorp is a Florida-based company with a strategic focus on telecommunications, information technologies as well as the business and technologies of social media.
