PARIS, November 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Selekter works to deliver a smart music selection that associates with an individual's taste through social curation.
Selekter is an advanced social media tool for music enthusiasts. A beta version has been created, which is available by invitation to innovators who support the Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign. In order to put the powerful music recommendation tool into the public's hands, the company requires support. A fundraising goal of €75,000 has been set in order to complete the online music curator and to make it free and accessible for everyone. The deadline for the project is December, 10, 2013.
Selekter is a powerful music recommendation platform that incorporates Deezer, one of the most popular music streaming services. Individuals can be linked to experts who share the same tastes. In this digital age, there is an abundance of musical choices available. Music fans are looking for a reliable source that can filter all the choices and provide the most fitting recommendations. The music timeline provides individuals with a personal list of suggested music based on recommendations of the user's favorite reviewers. Also displayed on the website is the basic reliable information most are interested in, including the best albums of the week, the best of for each genre and style (sub-genre), and the best reviewers of the week. The interface of the website is easy to understand and simple to search through.
Reviews and ratings are placed on Selekter by music fans that have social expertise. Reviewers are termed "Selekters" and are expected to write in a professional manner. Each contribution must include a minimum of 300 signs. The reviews are linked to the author's profile and can be evaluated by users. From these evaluations, and other data collected by Selekter, each contributor's reputation is calculated and they are given a rating called their "Karma" factor.
Basic features have been developed for Selekter and are accessible for use in the beta version. With the funding raised through the crowdfunding campaign, the company will work toward the public release of the website including marketing, promo expenses, and website hosting. Monies raised will also be utilized to develop main features and priority features. They are open to suggestions from beta users. While Selekter already incorporates many smart features, the company is interested in creating even more.
