We beam this transmission direct from Austin, as the bustle and anticipation swells for SXSW. And we’re so glad today has arrived so we can holler that Socialcam is now live! A snazzy app that made by the folks from Justin.tv that lets you share videos with friends, Socialcam is kicking off their launch with a video contest that will capture people doing outrageous things on camera. The winning team gets a week on this Airbnb private island including round trip airfare courtesy of Hipmunk!
Here’s how it works:
- Install the app on your iPhone or Android
- Take a video that completes the challenges outlined here (peek: lick something, do a barrel roll)
- Add #SXSW to the title
- Tag your friends and share
We can’t wait to see your faces on camera! Be sure to tweet @airbnb so we get to see you in action.
