This app would also be perfect for the girl who’s interested in becoming a Youtube beauty guru, but lacks that on-camera-confidence needed to exceed. Keek could help get you there!

How do I get started?
Keek can be used online or via a mobile app – to get started, visit the website or download the mobile app. Before you can get going with it, you will need to sign-up by creating a username and password. If you already have a following on other social media sites, it might be a good idea to use the same username. As this will make you more consistent and easier to find.
Once you have created your account, you can then add any additional personal information to your profile, as well as a profile picture. If you already have a social media following, make sure to include links to your other social media sites.
How does it work?
Micro videos created on the site are known as ‘Keeks’. To create a video, click the ‘New Keek’ button at the bottom of the page. This will then activate the camera on your phone or computer so that you can start recording.
Remember, Keeks are only meant to be short videos, so the longest time your can record for is 36 seconds. Once you have finished recording, you can then re-watch your micro video before deciding what to do with it. You can upload it, delete it or save it for later – it’s up to you. If you choose to share your micro video, you can also share it onto other social media sites, like Facebook and Tumblr. By sharing your keeks across various platforms, you can enhance its exposure.
How can I get people to watch my Keeks?
The site lets users watch micro videos by entering the username of the person into the search bar, a hashtag or keyword. Users can also find the most popular Keeks by visiting the ‘latest Keeks’ section of the site. To get more followers, this is what you should aim to get your account onto. For example, Tiffany Alvord on Keek has used the site to build up her following by becoming a popular user. As well as starting her own Keek hashtags.
To build up your following, share your Keeks on social media sites and other websites. The more Keek subscribers you have, the more your account will show up in news feeds. As anyone who subscribes to you will have your account linked to their newsfeed. You can also invite friends and followers from other social media sites, such as Facebook, and LinkedIn to join.
