Pixable

With hundreds of millions of photos and videos being shared every day it’s easy to miss out on the ones that actually matter to you. Pixable finds the best photos and videos shared on your social network so you never miss an important moment.

Pixable, founded in 2009, is a start-up headquartered in SoHo, NYC with MIT roots. The company has enabled more than 6 million users to manage and enjoy their online photos.

On September 18, 2012, Pixable was acquired by SingTel as a part of their Digital L!fe Group, which focuses on fostering new digital growth engines to bring the latest digital technologies to their customers and compete in new markets and adjacent industries.

The company’s free application offers a unique, personalized browsing experience by aggregating photos from different social networks and then sorting them into fun feeds, like Top Photos of the Day, in order of their relevance to the user. Pixable also doubles as a notification service allowing users to follow friends’ photo activity and be notified of newly tagged or uploaded photos. The “My Faves” section serves as a place where users can keep track of all of their favorite photos. Along with users’ personalized feeds, Pixable offers public feeds based on user interests, like Sports, Funny, Style & Fashion etc.

Pixable has been featured in The New York Times, BBC, ABC, NBC, Newsweek, CNN, USA Today, Mashable, Tech Crunch and The Atlantic Magazine. It was also highlighted as one of the coolest companies to work for by Time Out Magazine.
