Truli.net has officially launched with its motto of "Seek, Find & Share." The site is comparable to YouTube but has a distinctively family-friendly focus with a Christian mission. It is the brainchild of Michael Jay Solomon, who took time to speak with The Christian Post.
"I'm a content person-worked in the business about 40 years- my career was spent in distribution," Solomon explained. "I looked for programming and decided for content focused on the evangelical world, which currently has over 100 million in the United States, 600-700 million evangelicals in the world. I'm really focused on this group of people, which I believe strongly will continue to grow."
Solomon wanted a family-friendly site because there is a lack of that genre in the entertainment industry.
"It's fabulous content because it's family-friendly. Parents are crying out! Truli.net is family, faith-based. It's not only spiritual, but educational and entertaining."
One other unique aspect that Truli.net provides is the opportunity for ministers and churches to share their word with millions of viewers, which Solomon said is "very, very important for the ministry. A lot of people might object to things on TV today, and I think the stories have changed … the scripts have changed. Christians and non-Christians alike are objecting to the things depicted today."
Unlike YouTube, Truli.net has a store where viewers can purchase books, CDs, and over 300,000 items. The site also has an "Amen" button instead of a "Like" button, which allows viewers to share what they watched and liked.
Truli.net is family-friendly and Solomon made sure that it was a site "parents could feel comfortable letting their children log onto." The site's address is www.truli.net.
