The third release from the Facemash for WordPress concept is applying the Facemash concept to videos.
This plugin does just that. It allows you to add videos from either youtube.com or vimeo.com and find out which video is the favourite video voted by your website visitors.
The plugin has all the features of the Sound Mash plugin. It is a feature packed plugin release that gives your website visitors yet another are of your website to browse around.
What is Facemash?
Facemash is a website that was created by Mark Zuckerberg prior to his development of facebook.com. This plugin takes the same concept and applies it to videos embedded from youtube or vimeo. This plugin is one of three available from CodeCanyon.
Pics Mash – the original idea of comparing two photos to see which is best
Sound Mash – the facemash idea applied to soundcloud music files
Video Mash – the facemash idea applied to youtube and vimeo videos
You can read more detail about what Facemash is on the Pics Mash website here.
Why should I buy these plugins?
These plugins are all developed around a core engine of programming which allows you to discover how your websites media is perceived by your visitors. You can find out which image, which music track or which video your website users really prefer.
The benefits of these plugins are:-
- Easy to use – They only take a minute to setup and you can be rating your chosen media
- Consistency – The plugins are developed around the same “core” or “engine” you know what you’re going to get.
- Top quality support and future development – from new and budding CodeCanyon author.
- They keep your website visitors around longer
- If you couple them with adverts on the rating page – you can increase your CPM 10x!!
- Increases your website content easily and gives more areas to look around.
Why are the 3 plugins separate?
The plugins are each sold separately this is because although they are developed around the same core, they all do use special programming and are specific to a certain type of media.
It also keeps the plugins simple to use. If you only want image rating functionality, then the Pics Mash plugin is for you.
If you go out to buy a Playstation 3, you don’t want to be coming home with an xBox and a PC and end up paying 3x more…
You can still buy all three if you’d like though – I won’t complain.
