New York, NY (PRWEB) November 04, 2011
Mashable, a leading source for digital news and culture, announced today the Mashable Publisher Platform, an editorially-curated syndication experience bringing the best content from select publishers directly to Mashable’s community. Launch partners include AppAdvice, Causecast, ClickZ, GeekSugar, International Journalists' Network, paidContent, Pocketnow, PSFK and UX Magazine. Mashable editors will select content from the partner publishers to appear on Mashable.com and Mashable apps on a regular basis.
“As our community grows and digital continues to transform society in new ways, we want to offer more content that dives deeper into the topics that matter to our readers,” said Adam Ostrow, executive editor and senior vice president of content, Mashable. “To achieve this we are bringing content from a select group of media partners who have expertise in specific topic areas directly to our community on Mashable.com, across our social channels and on our apps.”
The Mashable Publisher Platform stands apart from other content syndication offerings because of its integrated social sharing, its ability to directly grow each publisher’s social media following and Mashable’s influential community.
"Publishers understand that readers are increasingly spending most of their online time on social networks, and turning to their friends and colleagues for content recommendations,” Ostrow added. “Our new Publisher Platform, along with our uniquely social community, offers our partners the opportunity to grow their traffic while creating engagement and awareness across social networks.”
Key Features of the Mashable Publisher Platform include:
- Social Subscription: Prominent display and promotion of publisher’s Facebook and Twitter presences alongside its articles on Mashable.com, allowing readers to directly subscribe to the brand’s social feeds.
