New York, NY (PRWEB) September 14, 2011
Snooth Media, home of Snooth (http://www.snooth.com), the world’s largest wine site, today announced the launch of an innovative, new contributor platform and content viewer, Wine Press (http://www.snooth.com/wine-press). The new product enables Snooth site users to easily contribute articles, upload photos, take quizzes, start conversations and ask questions. Wine Press also allows users to view the best wine content on the Web, including original content from Snooth and posts from the top wine blogs, all in one easily navigable page.
Wine Press offers Snooth’s 850,000+ community members, and anyone who logs in with their Facebook account, the opportunity to become contributors and bring their wine insights to the forefront. After publishing, each post gets fed into the Wine Press news stream where its placement is then determined by relevancy, community votes, Facebook Likes and Tweets.
“We want to make it easy for anyone to contribute to Snooth.com,” notes Snooth Media CEO Rich Tomko. “Wine Press allows folks who would like to write about wine, but don’t want the overhead of starting and maintaining their own blog, to easily publish their posts on a platform that will seamlessly put their ideas in front of the Web’s largest wine audience. On the other side, we’ve also built a tool that makes it easy for any user to digest the best online wine content customized to their expertise level and interests.”
As part of this new product launch, Snooth has partnered with leading Internet food and drink news site ZesterDaily.com (http://www.ZesterDaily.com) to bring additional expert content to the Snooth community. Articles from their award-winning contributors - Carla Capalbo, Patrick Comiskey and Elin McCoy – will help kick-off the Wine Press launch. In partnership with Zester Daily, Snooth will be hosting a “book-a-day” giveaway drawing from a robust “Wine Library” of books, including select titles from ZesterDaily.com contributors, and one grand prize winner who will receive the entire library
In June, Snooth launched Wine Rack, the site’s foray into social gaming. Interactions logged on Wine Press will be counted toward earning trophies on Wine Rack as well.
