New York social TV startup Viggle expands its reach

Most seasoned social media managers will appreciate that when a social startup begins to make major acquisitions, it’s probably going places. The New York-based social TV startup Viggle, which offers a loyalty program for TV viewers when they check in to the shows they’re watching or the music they’re listening to, has just done precisely that. It’s recently acquired Dijit Media, a San Francisco-headquartered company responsible for the personalized TV and web programming guide “NextGuide.” The whole Dijit team will be joining Viggle in the Big Apple. NextGuide meets Viggle Reminder The more inquiring social media manager will doubtless be speculating about what’ll be in the new bag formed by the blend of the two firms. Well, it’s all in the widget. The embeddable Viggle reminder widget appears as an onscreen button allowing users to sign up for reminders which prompt them when a show they want to follow is about to be aired. The intention now is to integrate the reminder button with Vijit’s guide, so that Viggle reward points can be offered in NextGuide. Commenting on the acquisition, Vijit’s CEO Jeremy Toeman said: “We have had incredible growth and success since our launch and we’re excited to join…

Photo-editing startup Aviary hits 10 billion photos

Social media managers keen to keep up with the latest developments in social technology will be interested to see that New York-based photo-editing startup Aviary has hit a major milestone. Its platform has now been used to edit no fewer than 10 billion photos. 70 million active monthly users and climbing Most tech-savvy social media managers would probably agree that sharing photos has become a major, if not the major, means of social communication in the mobile era. But if we’re going to share photos, most of us want to share great photos, and for too many of us, we can’t seem to get above average. That’s where Aviary comes to the rescue: offering its own branded apps, it not only gives one’s more underwhelming snaps the wow factor, its software development kit (SDK) lets developers add photo-editing capabilities to their websites or app in two shakes of a lamb’s tail. Founded in 2007, another measure of its growing success can be seen in the fact that it’s now integrated with over 7,000 partner apps, including Squarespace, Pic Stitch and Tango. Not only that, but its SDK has been downloaded in no fewer than 143 counties, and it’s reaching over…

Introducing 4C, the New York firm that converts social data into intelligent marketing

When a new tech company raises $5 million in Series B funding a year after being formed, most product managers would agree that it’s probably got a pretty hot product. And in the case of New York social data startup 4C, formed in 2013 from a merger between Voxsup and The Echo System, they’d be absolutely right. A winning combination Voxsup’s forte was social data, while The Echo System’s was in advertising and e-commerce. The combination of strengths arising from the fusion of the two has resulted in data analytics technology that will set most product managers involuntarily salivating. Given that Voxsup’s founder, Alok Choudhary, also works as a professor of electrical engineering and computer science at Northwestern University, it’s less surprising that 4C has some seriously smart technology behind it. Choudhary is now 4C’s chief scientist and chairman, while the CEO role is occupied by Echo System founder Lance Neuhauser. Intrigued product managers, of course, will want to know what this technology can actually do. According to the company’s website, it’s all about delivering actionable insights to Fortune 500 brands, big ad agencies and media firms about how people decide to make purchases. In a nutshell, the technology enables…

Jackthreads takes a small social step to make men feel less lonely when shopping

There’s a secret about clothes shopping: men and women do it differently. And that difference, social media managers may be intrigued to find, has prompted New York-based online shopping club Jackthreads to experiment with a little social tweaking – a small step it’s confident will produce impressive results. From solitary to social  Think about it for a moment: you’re a social media manager and you want a new outfit. Do you arrange to go shopping with a bunch of friends or do you get it all done flying solo? The answer almost certainly depends on whether you’re male or female. Women are more inclined to do their clothes shopping with friends and select items according to their verdicts, while for men it’s often a more solitary pursuit. Recognising this difference, Jackthreads introduced a social initiative last year which allowed male online shoppers to chat with young female customer service agents. Called “Chat with Jill”, it gave those male customers what they’d previously lacked: the viewpoint of a woman. According to Ben Lerer, whose men’s digital lifestyle publication Thrillist acquired Jackthreads last year, the idea is simple. It gives male customers a little social feedback on what they’re purchasing, equipping them…

Contently renews its fight against cheesy content marketing with $9 million cash injection

Remember those content farms that flooded search engines with low-grade, link-baited content marketing? Well, thanks to rapid changes in digital advertising and publishing business models, they’ve become a good deal less prevalent than they used to be. But as well-informed a tech product managers will be aware, New York-based tech startup Contently has singlehandedly played a major part in that war on cheesy content since its launch in 2011. And, having just snagged $9 million in Series B funding, it’s well positioned to continue the battle with renewed fortitude. Two business models in one With its army of freelance journalists and its software platform, Contently joins brands and marketers with talented freelancers to produce truly engaging, top-quality native content created for today’s digital-savvy consumers since 2011. As its co-founder and CEO, Shane Snow, puts it, Contently “is a mix between two business models, a software technology company and a talent management company.” That mix has certainly proven a hit with investors, as the recent hefty round testifies. But any product manager with more than a passing acquaintance with native advertising will know what’s turned them on: when content marketing is handled intelligently, it’s proven very effective. An all round hit?…
