Chill – An Online Video Network

Groups of friends have been sharing their favorite online videos through email messages and Facebook posts for years. Now Chill has arrived to give video sharing a true home base. With Chill, people can watch all the viral videos and television shows being recommended by their friends.

Sign in through Facebook to get access to Chill, and then get started watching all the best videos online. When you come across a video elsewhere on the web that you’d love to share with friends, just click the Chill bookmarklet tool to save the clip and share it automatically with all the people who follow your account on Chill. To keep the videos you’ve posted organized, you’ll want to add them to your Collections. Collections are groups of videos that fall into distinct categories, like music videos, commercials, or funny clips. People who follow your Chill account – similar to how they would follow a Twitter account – will see the videos you’ve posted on their homepage screen the next time they log in. Chill users who ‘like’ your videos can repost them to their own accounts with just a few simple clicks.

If you’re ever bored and looking for something to do, just log in to your Chill account and check out which videos are most popular right now. Each video you watch can be commented on and rated based on the emotion it evoked. You can also click to see all the other users who’ve watched the same video you just saw, and share the video with friends who aren’t on Chill via Facebook or Twitter.
