Experience

At Rozdoum, we used Liferay when creating a Social platform for TV addicts for German startup. The portal is a TV addicts social network that enables connecting people with similar interests through the site or via external social accounts like Facebook and Twitter. Users can connect with each other and communicate via internal chat, watch their favorite movies and share experience. The favorite movies can be bought on Amazon right away from the portal.

Leave us a note to see if Liferay can fit into your business model.
