Zeen: Create Online Magazines and Share Them to the World

If you haven't heard already, a new web 2.0 site will be launching soon. It could be this week or the coming week. It is called Zeen. One of the reasons why I'm so excited about this new site is because of the two guys behind it – Chad Hurley and Steve Chen. If you don't know who these guys are, they founded one of the biggest and most influential sites in the internet today – YouTube. Yes, that's right. Chad and Steve brought to the world the largest video-sharing site in the web. Zeen is not a video-sharing site. Let's just say it's a magazine-sharing site of sort although not much is really known about the new website.

If you visit the Zeen website right now, you will see a rather empty site. You can't use the site since it hasn't launched yet. However, you have the ability to reserve your user name. Just enter your desired user name in the blank space provided for and you are good to go. Why is this important? Because Zeen looks like a great place to do some sort of online communication and business marketing. So if you have a business, you better go in there now and reserve your user name before it is too late. You are going to regret it really bad if Zeen becomes uber popular and you failed to secure your user name with it.

Zeen is a product of AVOS, an internet company based in San Mateo, California. The company also has other offices located all over the world - New Zealand and China.The company is led by Chad Hurley and Steve Chen. AVOS also owns mei.fm and Delicious. AVOS purchased Delicious, a social bookmarking and networking site last year (2011).

Not very much is known how Zeen exactly works but a lot of the site's expected services can be gleaned from their Privacy Policy page.

It's no secret as well that the site has been testing its services on select users as evidenced by a couple of posts on the company's Facebook page. A Facebook user by the name of Anna Looper posted two posts thanking the company for a thank you note and a t-shirt. She also stated that she was among 10 garden bloggers who were chosen to test out the new site. Needless to say, Looper has only good things to say about the new site. A line from her post says Zeen is "Not going to be anything ya’ll have ever seen or dreamed up.”

This is going to be really interesting! I'm sure that Zeen is going to be a hit, as the founders of YouTube created it. I'm excited!
