Social media has become a significant force in the grand scheme of how news and information is disseminated to the public. For the first time, according to one study, social media use has outstripped that of email, and SNEWS® has found that nearly 20 percent of its own readership reports sites such as Facebook and Twitter are a significant source of industry news for them. With that knowledge – and in a continued quest to make your life easier -- SNEWS® has added social media links and buttons to our site.
At the end of every article and every industry news release in our site, readers will find links to some of the most popular social media sites – Facebook, Digg, Mixx, Delicious, Reddit, Stumble, Yahoo, Google, Technorati and Twitter. Just look for the “Member Tools” bar, as illustrated below, and click on a button to share that article with friends, quickly and easily.
Of course you can follow the SNEWS Team and our posts directly on Twitter too. Within hours of a story going live on our site, including in the highly trafficked Industry News Release section, a headline and link back to the story will appear on our Twitter page – it’s that easy to stay ahead of all the news happenings in the outdoor and fitness industries. If you’re already on Twitter, following SNEWS is as easy as visiting our Twitter page (http://twitter.com/SNEWSteam) and clicking “Follow.” If you don’t have an account yet, you can sign up by clicking the big green “Join today” button.
