Janrain Adds Reddit and Tumblr to Its Social Sharing Lineup

PORTLAND, OR -- (Marketwired) -- 08/28/14 -- Janrain announced enhancements to its Social Sharing capability, adding Reddit and Tumblr to the list of popular destinations to which visitors of Janrain-enabled sites can share content. The addition of two of the most popular 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 favorite 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.

Janrain'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 unique 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.

"The enhancement of our Social Sharing solution demonstrates our commitment to helping customers keep pace with the evolving landscape of social networks and sharing sites," said Larry Drebes, Janrain's chief executive officer and chief technology officer. "Endorsements from friends and across trusted networks is the most powerful way for publishers and marketers to drive engagement. We remain committed to building solutions for marketers that make it simple for their consumers and visitors to share content and provoke word-of-mouth marketing opportunities across diverse audiences and communities."

"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity.

Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
