Cooliris launches LiveShare “hyper-personal” group photo sharing

Cooliris, Palo Alto, Calif., announced LiveShare 1.2, a new and hyper-personal way to communicate with friends across mobile and web through live, shared group photo streams. LiveShare lets you create streams on the fly, make them as private or public as you want, and see the stream update in real time with the photos from all the people in the group. Whether it’s seeing what your best friends are doing right now, capturing a day at the park with the kids, or a bachelor party that needs to stay in Vegas, LiveShare gives you one photo stream for each event, rather than multiple albums in different places for different people. LiveShare is now available free on iPhone, Android, and Windows Phone 7, as well as at www.liveshare.com.

Cooliris also announced that it has raised $9.6 million in Series C funding from existing investors, which include Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Deutsche Telekom’s T-Venture, DAG Ventures, and The Westly Group. The company will use these new funds, and strategic partnerships, to further scale its monetizable user base and revenues.
