Chute Live Real-World Photo Aggregator Launches Today

Chute, a startup that helps publishers and brands incorporate photos and media, submitted by users and social media, within their websites, is now expanding its functionality to include real-world locations through a feature called Chute Live. This entails pulling photos from social media and putting them onto screens installed in spaces anywhere the hiring company might want – for example the Cosmopolitan Hotel launched a “Pop Up Wedding Chapel” that aggregates photos from Twitter the #PopUpChapel hashtag. Customers can build their own applications to do similar aggregation efforts, and Chute is already incorporated into the House of Blues and the NBA All-Star game.
