Collecta has announced improvements to its handling of images and video in real-time search results. The company says it’s now including video feeds from 12seconds, Qik, and uStream — three popular video sharing services. On the image side, Collecta says it has “enhanced” how it handles photos posted to TwitPic and yFrog, two of the more popular photo sharing services for Twitter.
As part of today’s announcement, CEO Gerry Campbell also shared some early traffic patterns since the site launched in mid-June:
“We’re finding that a large number of users are keeping Collecta open between 30-60 minutes and often even more…. By letting a search run for an extended period, people can literally watch stories unfold right before their eyes.”
Collecta strives to present information from blogs, articles, Twitter, Flickr, and other sources within a second of the content appearing online.
