If chatter in San Francisco throughout the past two weeks is any indicator, the tech scene there is in love with Socialcam — a video-sharing application that was spun out of live video streaming company Justin.tv.
In fact, a lot of them are talking about it like an Instagram — a photo-sharing application Facebook bought for more than $1 billion — for video.
Socialcam also just nabbed a big seed round of funding from a laundry list of angel investors that reads like the roster of the Avengers equivalent of Silicon Valley’s Venture investing crowd, TechCrunch reports.
Now it has more than 20 million users after graduating from the most recent class of Y Combinator, a famous tech startup incubator in Silicon Valley, according to TechCrunch.
That’s up from about 10 million users just a few days ago.
Why is everyone excited about it? We gave it a whirl to find out — and it looks like there are plenty of good reasons why.
