SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/28/14 -- Delivering on the promise of native advertising, MobSoc Media today announced a new digital publishing network of 35 properties across four publishing verticals (Entertainment, Lifestyle, Technology, and Sports) to attract and engage consumers with targeted precision. MobSoc Media creates digital properties that consumers can engage with wherever they are online -- via mobile, social media, and the web. MobSoc Media enables advertisers to reach their exact target audience in the mobile and social sphere at a more effective cost of audience acquisition, and allows consumers to satisfy their strong appetite for finding trending and engaging content that can also be easily shared.
Coupled with the company's launch announcement, MobSoc Media unveiled its leading entertainment digital property, Celeb Bistro, a celebrity news site. With more than 4 million fans on Facebook -- CelebBistro has already surpassed People Magazine's Facebook page by more than 1.0 million fans and is the largest celebrity news site on Facebook based on fan following today. Also announced, MobSoc Media successfully closed a $5 million in Series A funding in late 2013 with private investors. Advisors include entrepreneur/investor/author James Altucher and Founder and Managing Partner of the Social Internet Fund, Lou Kerner.
Unlike portal sites that serve multiple content categories to grow a general website audience, MobSoc Media delivers specific online destinations for each interest-based audience across four publishing verticals: Entertainment, Lifestyle, Technology, and Sports. This allows brand marketers to have surgical reach in their targeting, rather than paying for advertising to a generic multi-category portal site audience. Also, it helps brands to amplify existing branded content or produce advertorial content that generates much higher engagement with consumer audiences.
MobSoc Media's proprietary Social Rank® technology helps to crowdsource the most popular and trending content in real-time, whether it's on Facebook, Twitter or beyond. As a result, MobSoc Media delivers some of the highest engagement rates in the industry, up to seven times the average. One of the early investors is James Altucher, an author, investor and entrepreneur. Altucher said that investing in MobSoc Media was a natural fit because he had already used the company's underlying technology to boost the fan following for his own page. "I became excited after seeing MobSoc Media's initial Celeb Bistro news page, where it had achieved the largest Facebook fan following with millions of more fans than the traditional celebrity news publishers like People and US Magazine." Advertising dollars have always followed eyeballs. Companies that have the ability to grow large social and mobile audiences, where consumers are spending the most time, will demand market attention.
"With the online click through rates of display advertising dropping to below 1%, many brand marketers are looking for more effective advertising methods to engage their audiences. This is driving a rapid increase in in-stream advertorial content and a trend towards more native advertising formats, better suited for mobile/social audiences," said L. Jasmine Kim, CEO of MobSoc Media. "For example, if you're a lifestyle brand looking to reach a specific audience around the hip hop genre, we can deliver an interest-based community dedicated to that specific segment. We help marketers amplify existing branded content or produce advertorials that generate much higher engagement with the relevant target audiences."

DevOps is speeding towards the IT world like a freight train and the hype around it is deafening.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...
