Aug 28 14
Janrain announced enhancements to its Social Sharing capability, adding Reddit and Tumblr to the list of destinations to which visitors of Janrain-enabled sites can share content. The addition of two of the sites for shared user-generated content brings the total number of social networks available through Janrain Social Sharing to 13, including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Google+, Gmail, Yahoo, QQ, Tencent Weibo, Mixi, and XING. Social Sharing simplifies the spread of word of mouth marketing across social networks and between friends. Visitors encountering Janrain Social Sharing on websites and mobile apps can share their content across any of 13 social networks with a single click, driving referral traffic, search engine rankings, awareness and engagement. With this launch, visitors to any site using Janrain technology can generate posts on Tumblr from site content. Home to more than 197 million blogs and 83 billion total posts, Tumblr is one of the most popular social networks for under-25s; its 350 million monthly unique visitors generate an average of 95 million posts every day. The company's latest social sharing capability also allows one-click sharing of links and posts to Reddit, an entertainment, social networking service and news website with 114.5 million monthly visitors. Companies have long sought a simple method for fostering content discovery and driving traffic and awareness among Reddit's passionate community of Redditors -- registered community members who can submit, vote up, or vote down content. The addition of Reddit in Janrain Social Sharing gives publishers and marketers a simple route for enabling their site visitors to tap into its highly engaged community and enable distribution of content across the network.
