A new dimension to social networking
SocialEyes, which made its public debut Monday, was founded by Rob Glaser and Rob Williams, who know a thing or two about digital video from their days as executives at RealNetworks. Mr. Glaser started RealNetworks in 1995 and stepped down as its chief executive last year after a sometimes stormy tenure. He remains chairman.
People log in to SocialEyes using Facebook Connect. They see their Facebook friends and can begin chats with several of them at once, individually or in a group. If someone isn’t online, users can leave a video message.
