San Francisco, U.S.A. — Media Sentiment, is of the opinion that the following is a material event which warrants a public release. The Company is pleased to report that it is in the final stages of finalizing the acquisition of a new asset, namely the social media video curation technology of videocourier.com.
Media Sentiment immediate plans are to start the work on integrating the videocourier.com technology into the media sentiment set of tools. The plan is to use this new social networking technology to enable users from around the world to easily create and share video channels, in real-time by curating video clips of material importance to equities, currencies, bonds and any other financial instruments.
The intent is to make this technology available in as many languages as possible, from available news sources around the world. Currently, the technology already supports video clips from news sources such as CNBC, Reuters, Forbes, CNN Money, The Wall Street Journal, TheStreet.com, CBS News, Morningstar, Yahoo Daily Ticker, AOL Business, as well as international sources such as BBC, Aljazeera, European Commission and EuropeNews and others.
Marion Munz, Media Sentiment’s CEO said, “Social media curation is seen by many experts as the next major media trend for social networking technologies, following the extraordinary valuations of the traditional social media networks. As an example, Pinterest.com, one of the latest darlings of Silicon Valley investment community, has recently received a $1.5 billion valuation, due in part to the perceived growth potential.”
Media Sentiment sees as a tremendous opportunity to create one of the most comprehensive databases of video news that shakes markets around the world, by making use of its trademarked thumbs up and down symbols to indicate the sentiment coming from video news and information that moves markets. The trademarked meaning of the thumbs up and thumbs down symbols should be easily understood by anyone, in any language, therefore maximizing the impact and timeliness of the news.
The company will continue its search for additional acquisition candidates, and foresees closing this transaction within the next 3 to 5 business days.
