We're Joining Facebook!

13 August 2018, 1:30pm PDT

Wow. We’re really excited to share we’re joining Facebook effective today. We will continue to help creators, publishers, and broadcasters create great live experiences, and focus on what we’re best known for: Enabling world-class interactive streams on Facebook Live. Our customers who currently use the product will continue to be able to do so following our transition to Facebook.

Way back in 2012 we founded Vidpresso with a simple vision: To make video more like HTML—easier to author, easier to change, and customized per person. We’ve had a lot of false starts along the way, first offering tools to help synchronize presentations with slides, then offering tools to help broadcasters put social media on TV. We finally landed on helping create high quality broadcasts back on social media, but we still haven’t realized the full vision yet.

That’s why we’re joining Facebook. This gives us the best opportunity to accelerate our vision and offer a simple way for  creators, publishers, and broadcasters to use social media in live video at a high quality level. We've always wanted to build tools for everyone to create interactive live video experiences.

By joining Facebook we’ll be able to offer our tools to a much broader audience than just our A-list publishing partners. Eventually, it’ll allow us to put these tools in the hands of creators, so they can focus on their content, and have it look great, without spending lots of time or money to do so.

We’ve had a lot of great support from day one. From companies who believed in us early on like broadcasters KSL, KTXL, and Univision, to press outlets and journalists who wrote about us, to the countless partners like BuzzFeed, Turner Sports, Nasdaq, TED, NBC (there are really too many to mention…) who joined us when we launched Vidpresso:LIVE. You took a big chance on us, and saw us through our bumpy ride. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

And this is just the beginning. If you’re interested in working with us as we transition to Facebook, we’d love to hear from you. You can fill out our interest form.
