WiredPRNews.com — Now, with the assistance of Delve Networks, the military has provided troops with a different video sharing site that allows them interaction with family and supporters. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the new site TroopTube allows individuals to register and upload videos that are later screened by Pentagon personnel to ensure national security and that only appropriate material is displayed.
Alex Castro, Chief Executive of Delve was quoted in the AP report as stating “A lot of people are excited in the company to be doing something for the people who make sacrifices… We’re proud of this.” The company is assisting with the site’s technological development and site compatibility for user connections.
