Ganges is “a space in which you can share open-minded thoughts” through internet browser for internet users from all over the world and you.
b. How is Ganges different from other sharing services?
Ganges will evolve as “the user centered site” which puts users in the center. We have an open mind which similar characteristic sites should share information together in order for users not to obtain only biased information. We never want you to stay long to get much information only in Ganges. You may watch for our intention through CI called Ganges.
The color of yellow contains courage and challenge, the mind of our management team. The color of white means share and harmony, that means any trivial things around you can be information and knowledge. The color of green shows equality and division.
All of these can be done due to your participation. The precious materials, which you register will be shown to other users and be estimated by you.

After that, if the postings, which you put up are found by others and decided as useful information, they will press “VOTE” and give points to your postings. This point will be a measuring stick of “Top Contributers” in Ganges.Later, we are supposed to give some gifts to high graded Contributers.
b. Hot videos
The first registered posting will be registered on “Recent Videos” automatically. And then, it will be registered on “Hot Videos” according to points of “vote” frequency of users. Minimum points must be more than 10 votes to be registered on “Hot Videos”. If you can’t get enough points in few days after resister of postings, they will be removed on “Recent Videos” automatically.

This place is where first registered material of users stay and by order of registration they are shown to users.

It is just like web e-mail, but it lets you share videos and photos (even large ones) with as many people as you’d like – without overloading their mailboxes with huge attachments. Our unique technology ensures all your recipients will be able to see what you want them to see, painlessly. Ganges E-card also allows you to select from an array of looks and layouts to customize your message for each individual occasion.
b. Can I customize the Look, Layout and Flash effect of my photos?
Yes! Each channel, like a scrapbook or a movie theater, deserves its own personality. If you’d like, you can dress up the channel for your wedding and dress down the channel for your bowling league (or the other way around, if you’d prefer).
To select different looks and layouts, select Look and Layout under the Look menu in my Ganges.
Your Account Homepage, where all your public channels are viewed, can also have a customized look. To select your theme click Change How Your Account Homepage Looks under the Options tab.
