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."

Five years ago development was seen as a dead-end career, now it’s anything but – with an explosion in mobile and IoT initiatives increasing the demand for skilled engineers. But apart from having a ready supply of great coders, what constitutes true ‘DevOps Royalty’? It’ll be the ability to craft resilient architectures, supportability, security everywhere across the software lifecycle. In his keynote at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Jeffrey Scheaffer, GM and SVP, Continuous Delivery Busine...
Deep learning has been very successful in social sciences and specially areas where there is a lot of data. Trading is another field that can be viewed as social science with a lot of data. With the advent of Deep Learning and Big Data technologies for efficient computation, we are finally able to use the same methods in investment management as we would in face recognition or in making chat-bots. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Gaurav Chakravorty, co-founder and Head of Strategy Development ...
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, a director and senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, discussed the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
"Cloud computing is certainly changing how people consume storage, how they use it, and what they use it for. It's also making people rethink how they architect their environment," stated Brad Winett, Senior Technologist for DDN Storage, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
