Will the next avatar-based social entertainment service please step up to… Oh, it has. Chill has an admirably high-concept pitch: it’s Turntable.fm for videos (including music videos). Users sign in via Facebook, pick an avatar, join a room and then cue up some videos from YouTube and Vimeo to play to everyone else there, while pinging friends on Twitter to join the room. The service has already upset someone rather influential though: Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who described Chill’s feature that auto-posts a message about it being ‘awesome’ on users’ Facebook walls as “lame”. The site’s founder, Brian Norgard, reacted quickly, removing the feature. “We want there to be no question about our motives. We’re a small startup obsessed about building something that people really love. Video should be more social, immersive and fun.” Source: Mashable Source: Chill
