Webcams stickams

But, he said, the company is trying to grow its audience first. Since its launch in February 2005, Stickam has grown its membership to about 400,000 registered users; and it's adding between 3,000 and 4,000 members a day, according to Flacks.

(The audience is comprised largely of 14- to 25-year-olds, he said.) Research firm com Score shows that in January, Stickam drew 569,000 unique visitors, up 36 percent from 364,000 in February a year before.

"It takes social networking to the next obvious level: not just photos and video, but being able to chat live and reach out in a more personal way." growing up with broadband video, instant chat and virtual environments.

And yet it's trying to carve out a niche not yet claimed by the Internet giants, and capitalizing on that early.

(The final details are still being worked out, he added.) In addition, Stickam is building a production studio in Los Angeles to create original video for the site, and it's in talks with Hollywood studios about content partnerships.

One planned show will feature exclusive video from Hollywood's Magic Castle, a members-only club where magicians perform for invited audiences.

That's just a drop in the bucket compared with My Space, however; and Stickam only typically hosts a few hundred live Webcam feeds at once.

My Space drew 61.5 million unique visitors in the United States in January, up roughly 42 percent from 35.5 million in January 2006.

For Stickam, the strategy is to act even more nimble than predecessors My Space and You Tube, which have both been absorbed by larger entities Fox (owned by News Corp.) and Google, respectively.

"Fox's still trying to discover how to provide features to users of My Space and keep it on the straight and narrow from a corporate governance standpoint," Flacks said."We're a little bit more svelte, a little bit more relaxed.

It's is the largest live streaming social network there is.

It has over 7 million registered users that get behind their webcams and expose themselves on the internet.
