KickApps provides on-demand social media applications that enable web publishers and marketers to grow, engage, and monetize online audiences. Its SaaS platform is powered by the first Social Graph Engine for web publishers. The platform includes social networking, user-generated content, programmable video players, drag-and-drop widget building, WidgeAds and other applications that are tightly integrated with Robust Media Moderation, member management and reporting.
In March 2007 KickApps partnered with YouTube by providing KickApps's affiliates with the ability to easily pull relevant and compelling video from the YouTube library into their own KickApps-powered networks through the YouTube API. KickApps also added features that allow its affiliates to easily publish video from their networks directly to their YouTube accounts.
