5 Good App Blogs & Year-End Statistics

In order to stay competitive, apps are constantly innovating. At times, the updates can be frustrating to members – just think back to every time Facebook updated something and hoopla that followed. It is understandable that consumers would be upset and, while there is little they can do about preventing changes in their favorite apps, there is a great way to stay on top of changes as they happen – company blogs.

Originally embraced as vehicles for self-expression, blogs were soon adopted by brands and apps as a way to tell their story and communicate with their members directly. In addition to all the tech blogs and news outlets dedicated to apps, we recommend getting your information straight from the source as well.

To help you stay on top of the inevitable changes at some of your favorite apps, here’s a short list of blogs we like and recent statistics on each one to give you a sense of why staying current is important. Most apps also offer a developersblogs for more technical information and updates.

CoPromote Reaches Over 1 Billion People in September

rev6a-1b-reach

CoPromote launched in 2014 with a mission to serve the dynamic emerging market of independent content creators on the social web.

Whereas major brands and creators have the resources to scale their reach with traditional advertising, many independent content creators have to rely on word of mouth or social alternatives which can take time to scale, and detract from the creative process.

Enter CoPromote. Founded by creators to serve creators, CoPromote not only understands the needs of creative people, we understand the technology required to build a platform that enables creators to reach and support each other organically, affordably and easily.

As September has shown, there is clearly need for CoPromote on the social web, which means we should all look forward to reaching the next billion together soon!

 

Product Update: Share Queue Filter

Today we launched a neat little update to the share page. Now, you can filter your queue by social network and click on a CoPromoter’s handle to see their social network. Our goal is to help you find content you like more quickly and to help you verify whose content you’re sharing.

Recommended tab: This is your unfiltered queue, with matches based on our algorithm Affinity Rank.

Network tabs: Click to see the share requests just for that network.

Member Handles: Click on a user’s handle to jump to their profile on that social network.

Try it out and let us know what you think!

Come and Get It: Real-time Posting & 10 Shares Per Day Upgrade!

Great news:

Real-time posting is live – plus, you can now share up to 10 posts per day!

Real Time JPG1

What does this mean?
If you’re boosting, you will see your posts on other members’ Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr pages as soon as they agree to share it. If you’re sharing, you will be able to share up to 10 posts per day, instantly.

Why the change?
We used to schedule 3 posts per day per member. This limited options for members who share real-time content, as well as for members who want to share more than 3 times per day.

How Will This Improve CoPromote?
Fresher content, more of it, and immediate posting mean that you can scale your social reach even faster.
