Share and Share Alike
March 25, 2009
ingage Publication users can share publication content using their favorite social networking site or by e-mail with just a couple clicks. All web-based ingage Publication conversions have an optional, built-in sharing feature which allows web surfers to quickly post a link to the publication using popular social networking services FaceBook, MySpace, Twitter, StumbleUpon and Delicious.
The option to share a publication is always available from the ingage Publication toolbar. As a user flips through the pages of a magazine, catalog or brochure and he or she finds something that may be of interest to his or her friends or colleagues, a link to the publication can be shared by clicking the envelope icon located on the toolbar between the page numbers and the printer.
A new window will open with the available share options. From there, the user may fill out the form to send a personalized e-mail or may click on any of the social network icons located below the form to automatically send the information about the publication to the corresponding social networking site.
Clicking the FaceBook icon, for example, will send the cover image and a link to current publication to FaceBook and the user will be prompted to login to his or her FaceBook account and approve the post. The link to the publication is now available to anyone in the user’s FaceBook network.
Taking advantage of the viral nature of social networking and the word-of-mouth type referrals by e-mail is a great way for publishers or content producers to expand potential circulation with little or no added expense. The goal in development of ingage Publication’s built in sharing capability is to accommodate the grassroots distribution of publication content by making the process as simple as possible for the end user.
