Vokle: Set up your own Internet talk show
Vokle is comprised of a small team of technology and communication enthusiasts in California, and they've built an incredibly powerful platform for video conferencing. With just a few clicks you can become the host of your own video talk show, and start taking questions from a live audience.
You can post your show in one of several categories on Vokle, including topics like: entertainment, arts & lifestyle, technology, business, learning, and offbeat. It's is easy to use, social media friendly, entertaining, and very interactive.
Vokle has built its platform with a heavy focus on social media integration, and you can sign into the website using your Facebook or Twitter account. I found the embed feature to be one of the coolest I've seen in any video sharing service. You can embed a single line of code on any webpage, giving fans and followers multiple access portals to your show when it goes live.

Once your show is live, you can add in a co-host, and easily monitor real-time Twitter activity about your broadcast. Viewers can interact using text or video questions, and answering their questions is fun and super easy. What's really awesome is that Vokle has even built a screening service into the platform. The screener is a secondary host that screens all the incoming video calls in the background, and passes the cleared callers through to the main host. This allows the show to maintain a safe and solid flow of activity, without the worry about prank callers and other negative setbacks.
Major celebrities and web personalities are already leveraging Vokle for video conferencing and social media, including notable people such as former vice president Al Gore, motivational speaker Tony Robbins, Arianna Huffington, photographer Dane Sanders, Grammy winner Imogen Heap , and YouTube partner SoldierKnowsBest.
After spending a few hours setting up my profile and cruising around with the features of Vokle, I can pretty much predict with confidence that it will become a very big social media platform in the near future. Take a look at Vokle's official video, and tell us what you think in the comments below.
