MediaRhyme logoSocial Media Portal (SMP): What is your full job title and role (what do you do there at MediaRhyme)?

Jad Aizarani (JA): I’m a 16 year old Web Designer, Developer and Enterpeuner from Beirut, Lebanon. I’ve always thought that the web life still needs something new / interactive and more efficient, so after 2 months of hard work and sleepless nights the idea of making a “Download Search Engine” aroused, I call it MediaRhyme … MediaRhyme is a search engine that enables you to download any Audio, Video, E-book and Torrent and also includes a web search and dictionary and a translator.

SMP: What was the most challenging part of building the service?

SMP: What are the high moments of what you have been doing so far?

JA: We strive in reaching a bigger number of visitors and download, because we think MediaRhyme has the potential of enabling all the users on the web to have a simplified and a better web life.

SMP: What are the next moves for MediaRhyme?

JA: We want to keep on offering the latest results in music and videos from a consumers perspective. For developers – we want to be the default search engine solution.

SMP: What’s going to be the most interesting aspect regarding social media and networks?
