Gigya users creates emails with videos, slide shows, music, widgets, games, even their MySpace layout.
Gigya opens the doors and lets email users express themselves in the medium they use every day. Until now email has been left behind in the self expression revolution.
Users can keep their email address, or use a Gigya account, and create emails with videos, slide shows, music, widgets, games, even their MySpace layout. They choose from a selection of thousands of elements or embed code from their favorite sites.
The content they choose will appear directly in the email body so recipients can interact with it. Users already use code snippets to embed content into blogs, personal spaces and web pages. Gigya brings this level of self-expression directly to email.
Gigya is funded by Benchmark Capital and First Round Capital.
