HollerHear mobile application launches to bring authenticity and transparency back into the conversation
PALO ALTO, Calif., Oct. 13, 2015 – With an estimated one in four people worldwide using social media to communicate, the need to further enrich and evolve social media platforms is greater than ever before. HollerMedia, Inc., a Silicon Valley-based media and technology company, has launched HollerHear, a mobile application that enhances the social media experience by enabling users to post and listen to audio recordings on their existing social media networks. HollerHear combines the authenticity and transparency of voice with the global reach of social media.
Using the application, users create audio recordings, or hollers, which can then be simultaneously posted to Facebook, Twitter and the HollerHear platform thereby reaching a user’s social media following. The iOS version of the app is currently available for free download in the iTunes App Store (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/hollerhear-voice-+-social/id968908085?mt=8), with Android and Apple Watch versions expected later this year.
- Create and share audio recordings of up to 15 seconds.
- Integrated with Twitter and Facebook for one-step posting.
- Share and comment on content from other sites, such as articles, blog posts, videos and images.
- Listen to and approve hollers before sharing.
- Tag hollers by subject to increase audience reach.
- Listen to all hollers (or by area of interest) using a hands-free auto-play function.
- Easily post to social media while on the go.
“Voice is authentic, personal and builds a stronger connection with audiences,” said Collin Cohen, CEO of HollerMedia, Inc. “Adding voice to a social network enhances tone, meaning and even credibility of communication and results in a more compelling delivery.”
HollerHear limits recording times to 15 seconds to keep content lively and maintain listeners’ attention, does not include voice-altering filters and gimmicks so content remains authentic and is geared toward communicating with large audiences as opposed to 1-to-1 or small group communication.
For everyone from politicians, comedians, authors, talk show hosts and celebrities to companies, charities, content creators and social media users in general, HollerHear is a powerful tool that increases audience engagement and enables people to hear and be heard as well as promote content, products, issues and causes. A singer, for example, can holler to fans about a new album and sing a few verses; a politician can holler from the campaign trail; or an athlete can holler from the locker room following a game.
HollerMedia, Inc., is based in Palo Alto, California, and was founded by a group of technology and consumer marketing entrepreneurs. More information is available at hollerhear.com, on Twitter @hollerhear and on Facebook at /hollerhear.
