Social promotion platform morphs into CoPromote $1.8 million heavier

Social media man­agers will be aware that some peo­ple have a tal­ent for pro­duc­ing con­tent that can influ­ence oth­ers on social net­works with ele­gance, humor and orig­i­nal­i­ty; and New York’s social exchange plat­form has act­ed as an online hub for these tal­ent­ed influ­encers to pro­mote one another’s con­tent since its launch in 2009. But this week, it’s announced a name change and a size­able cash injec­tion. Not just for musi­cians Cour­tesy of a seed fund­ing round led by ff Ven­ture Cap­i­tal, raised a hand­some $1.8 mil­lion this week and mor­phed into “CoPro­mote” (oth­er par­tic­i­pants includ­ed Alpha Prime Ven­tures, Cor­re­la­tion Ven­tures, Rubi­con Project pres­i­dent Greg Raif­man and The Social Inter­net Fund). The inquir­ing social media man­ag­er will want to know what prompt­ed the name change and the answer points to the startup’s suc­cess. Orig­i­nal­ly aimed at musi­cians (hence the “fm” bit), its com­mu­ni­ty expand­ed and diver­si­fied to include a whole raft of cre­ators and mar­keters, from blog­gers to online video pro­duc­ers, app devel­op­ers to char­i­ties and small busi­ness­es. Sud­den­ly, hav­ing a name with “fm” in it was start­ing to get a lit­tle mis­lead­ing because it’s cer­tain­ly no longer lim­it­ed to musi­cians. So “CoPro­mote” came to be instead. Small-bud­get cre­ators,…

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…
