A mobile application called OnePape. It is pronounced "One" like "1" and "Pape" like "Paper" without the "R". You won't know what OnePape is just yet but you will soon. For now, let's just say it is... A library without books and a theatre without films. It is the best content you will ever read or watch because it is the only content that will require you to do both. It will be immersive and compelling with cliffhangers and plot twists that will leave you burning through video and tearing through text. It will have long-arching storylines broken into digestible pieces to be consumed in airports, on couches, in beds and in between classes whether you have 15 minutes or 15 hours. It will free, it will cost money and will come in both unlimited and short supply. It will be online, offline and, for some, inline. It will many things to many people with many parts but it will always...ALWAYS be unmistakably OnePape.

We are a reasonably new startup based in London with offices in San Francisco. Having raised $20 million in funding and with successful beta projects with Pepsi, Tesco.com and the Red Hot Chili Peppers we are now rolling out our product in full. We've built an engine that uses people's social media behaviour to understand their interests, and those of their friends, so that we can provide them with an incredibly personal on-site experience. Essentially we would help visitors to your site personalize their experience by using insight from their own social media activity. We present the content, products or messaging visitors are most likely to engage with, and help identify who in their network would also be interested in the content. The result is a very 'personal to me' user experience that increases repeat visits, enables targeted user acquisition, and provides rich user insights that you can plug in to your marketing and advertising campaigns.
