Swoj.com was born in 1999 as a hobby website, partly a test for web technologies and partly to share funny content with friends - back then, there was no social media and no video websites, if you wanted to share a funny video, you usually had to email it to your friends which was not good for people that had limited email access. Now time has passed, the internet has evolved and Swoj.com is being rebuilt from the ground up to provide a better experience for everyone visiting. The general principles remain the same – share cool stuff with everyone, do some cool stuff behind the scenes.
Youtube contains more videos that you could every find time to watch – the goal of the Swoj.com videos section is to provide a more selective list of quality content to watch across a variety of topics. The intent is for the content to be ‘interesting’ in some way, it might be educational, entertainment, parody, trailers, funny or controversial, however the aim to find quality content to be enjoyed (that probably means no ‘reaction’ videos 😉 ). Quality content does not come easy, people can put a great deal of time and effort into producing these videos and as such credit should always be given where credit is due.. the source channel will be listed and linked* so that transparency is maintained.
* Right now there is some older content that is being worked on to back fill the information, however the intent is to have credit for every video

More will be coming over time with the roadmap including (in no specific order):
