Seesmic, a US-based startup which lets users post short video comments on blogs or on Seesmic.com itself, has raised $6 million in second round of funding led by Omidyar Network and Wellington Partners. The new round brings Seesmic’s total funding to $12 million, reports VentureBeat.

According to Loic Le Meur, founder of Seesmic, while the company was not looking to raise money, he really wanted the two investors — Pierre Omidyar of Omidyar Network and Eric Archambeau of Wellington Partners — on board and to learn from them which led to the second round of funding.

“Monetizing Seesmic won’t occur in the next 12 months, we are focusing on the community and the platform,” Loic Le Meur has said. “I believe video AdSense like advertising will be huge and TV advertising dollars will finally shift online, but it will take 3 to 5 years, this is why we need funding to be there when it grows.”
