We’re seeing Daylife-powered pages expanding interaction among our readers”
New York, NY (PRWEB) April 28, 2010
Forbes.com (http://www.forbes.com), home page for the world’s business leaders, and networked content services provider Daylife (http://www.daylife.com) today announced the first of several initiatives to enhance business sector news and information. Their first collaboration is a significant expansion of Forbes’ famous Billionaires coverage, adding real-time news, images, videos and other content to profiles of the world’s wealthiest individuals, including Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and Warren Buffett.
Powered by Daylife’s SmartTopics (http://corp.daylife.com/daylife_smarttopics), the newly launched Billionaires topic pages (http://billionaires.forbes.com/) are dynamically updated profiles that feature recent Forbes Media articles and videos on each billionaire, supported by relevant photos, videos, coverage timelines, and mentions from 8,000 selected external feeds. The pages also pull from the Forbes’ Billionaires database to create an interactive chart that shows the individual’s net worth over time. Finally, every topic page links to several related topic pages, creating an endlessly engaging discovery experience.
Forbes.com chose Daylife, the market leader in networked content services, for its curation and aggregation workflow technology, which will enhance original Forbes content, increase traffic and visitor interaction and minimize demands on resources.
Commenting on the collaboration, Forbes Media Managing Editor Bruce Upbin commented, “We’re seeing Daylife-powered pages expanding interaction among our readers with a wider variety of stories and videos throughout the site.”
“It’s exciting for us to work with Forbes.com because the bar is so high: Millions of people around the world turn to Forbes for trusted business information and insight,” Daylife’s Chief Executive Officer Upendra Shardanand said of the relationship. “We see a unique opportunity to add engagement, context, and up-to-the-minute timeliness to their sophisticated business content.”
The Billionaires topic pages are the first in a series of feature collaborations by the two companies, with more slated to launch throughout 2010.
