Justin Bieber Takes on New Social Media Site

Justin Bieber has taken on a new social media site called, Shots Of Me, by investing $1.1 million in the venture.  Targeting Bieber’s strongest demographic of teen users, the site seeks to pick up young teens that are fading from Facebook, which has recently seen a decrease in teen users.  While there is very little official information about the site, it is believed that it will enable users to share pictures – lots of pictures.

Shots of Me will first launch as an app and will be available in the Apple store later this week.  It will be the latest offering from RockLive, a company that Bieber has worked with in the past by testing and tweeting about their social mobile games.  With a following of 46.5 million, Bieber has the second most followers on Twitter just behind Katy Perry who recently knocked him out of the number one spot.  Whether or not his Twitter fans follow him to this new app is yet to be seen.

This is not the first social media site that Bieber has taken on as an investor.  He has also put money into Viddy in 2009 as well as Tinychat and Spotify.  In the case of Viddy, Bieber’s promotion did not guarantee its success and the video-sharing startup is still struggling to find its footing in the market.

RockLive is a San Francisco based company was created a few years ago by CEO John Shahidi and his brother Sam.  According to Shahidi in an interview to Fortune who first reported the story, Bieber’s interest in the site sprang from the site’s goal of trying to address cyber-bullying and offering teens what they can’t get on other sites.

The teen heartthrob’s move to support this venture is home ground for the pop star.  He was discovered on Youtube and still has some of the highest rated songs on the site.  Bieber’s ability to generate loyal fans through the internet and social media sites is legendary as befits his Twitter ranking.  The first picture of himself that he sent out on Instagram got such a huge response that the company’s servers crashed. Fans are referred to as Beliebers and are well known for swarming hotels where he might be staying.

Bieber has been in the news of late for more controversial reasons.  Last week he was spotted leaving one of Brazil’s most famous brothels with two ladies in tow.  On Halloween he was in Columbia were street art is legal and was seen tagging his support for Chris Brown after Brown’s arrest for assault by spray painting “Free Breezy” on one of the Bogata’s city walls.

Bieber takes on this new social media site as the lead investor in this latest round of raised seed money, but he is not the only celebrity to invest.  In August of 2012, boxer Floyd Mayweather, venture capitalist Shervin Pishevar, and actor Omar Epps all invested in the project.  Shots of Me now has $2.7 in seed funding and will begin soliciting institutional investments.

  1. Hey, how’s it going?

    Did you hear that the powers that run this world want to put a RFID microchip in our body? It will contain not only our bank accounts but our personal information, making us total slaves to the elite. This will cause us to lose even more of our privacy.

    Did you know that this RFID microchip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18?

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name…”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. It’s amazing that the Bible foretold a cashless society!

    Did you also hear that the Jewish people are in the process of bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible by the prophet Daniel, Jesus, and Apostle Paul? They deny Jesus as their Messiah and say their Messiah will be revealed to rule the whole world under a one world religion. They are not even hiding this information, but are actually promoting it. You can view videos about this on YouTube.

    When Donald Trump made Jerusalem captial of Israel in late December 2017, the Jewish people said this was a big step for them to build this Third Temple. They even printed a Temple coin with president Trump’s face on the front with king Cyrus'(the man who built the Second Temple in the Bible) face behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the Third Temple. They are selling these coins to raise money to build the Temple.

    People have been saying for many years that the end is near, but we needed not only the Third Temple, but also the technology for there to be a cashless society for the Mark of the Beast to be a reality.

    There is much more to know, please visit http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM to see all the proof!

    GOD BLESS, JESUS LOVES YOU!

  2. Hey there! Wanted to share with you some very important news! Did you hear that the elite are planning a world where we all have a RFID microchip implanted in our body? This will be part of a one world cashless society, making us total slaves to them. More importantly, did you know that this microchip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible(Revelation 13:16-18)? “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name…” Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards.

The Jewish people are in the process of building the Third Temple prophesied by the prophet Daniel, Jesus and Apostle Paul. They deny Jesus as their Messiah and say their Messiah will be revealed to rule the world. This information is public, and you can see it for yourself. Do not be deceived, this man will be thee Antichrist! For proof of all this and much much more, please visit http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM Jesus loves you, He is calling you!
