BRISBANE'S brightest tech-heads have joined forces to create "the next big" social network to take on internet giants Twitter, Facebook and Google.

Kondoot - a social network based around live streaming video - was launched quietly last month and already is making a splash on the web.

Users from more than 100 countries have signed up, with most interest from the US.
Users can "friend" others, just like Facebook, but the main point of difference is the wide range of streaming video options.

Kondoot will allow users to broadcast streaming video from home or work live to the world.

"The video calling and text chatting is there and posting to profiles, but we add another dimension," Kondoot spokesman Nathan Hoad told The Courier-Mail.

"It's mostly about connecting people and video is just one way to do that.

"We think we can make a massive splash in the social media scene."

Mr Hoad, 24, one of the team's programmers, said Kondoot was a mash-up of the best features of the major social media websites.

"Most of them do only their thing - nobody really covers more than that," he said.

"YouTube, for example, is big into video but the social side is not so good. We add that other dimension."

The team of 10 who work full-time on the site's business, legal and IT needs is currently working 18-hour days to develop new features.

It has been more than a year in the making but the tight-lipped crew have managed to keep a lid on their idea until now. "It started as just an idea in around April last year," Mr Hoad said.

"A few of us got together to see if it was possible and since June more and more have been joining as we started building a prototype."

Social media has been a worldwide revolution and Facebook, which recently announced new video-calling capabilities, now boasts more than 750 million monthly active users.

Google also ventured into the market in June with Google+, which now has more than 25 million users.
