GoComics.com launches an enhanced sharing experience today, thanks to a partnership between Meebo and Universal Uclick, the world’s largest independent syndication company.
GoComics.com will now feature the Meebo Bar located at the bottom of users’ browser windows. The bar offers one-click and drag-and-drop sharing through individual buttons that connect to the user’s email, Facebook and Twitter accounts, among others.
Meebo, which reaches more than 180 million people each month according to Quantcast, and has been a popular addition to more than 8,000 sites such as TMZ.com and TVGuide.com, among others.
“The GoComics community revolves around the idea of comics as a shared experience,” said Lee Salem, president and editor of Universal Uclick. “Our site is designed to allow fans to share the experience of reading comics and other content with their friends and fellow users. We expect Meebo, which will be available on every page at GoComics.com, to be a big hit with existing GoComics users and new users alike.”
“Comic strips are classic entertainment at its best and the perfect type of content that you'd want to share with your social circle online,” added Stephanie Quay, Meebo Director of Business Development. “This makes GoComics a terrific fit for Meebo, and we’re glad to have them as a new partner.”
Meebo provides the easiest, most open and most “right there where you want it” way to share on the web. Integrating all social networks and communications channels into a single, simple-to-use solution, Meebo enables users to easily share content and communicate in real time with the people who matter to them, and connects people to their friends through the Meebo Bar. The privately held company was founded in 2005.
