If you are old enough to remember when the idea of something being viral was typically a bad thing, then you are in good company. Nowadays, however, creators of content WANT it to go viral…it’s actually a good thing. As Mr. Dylan reminds us, “the times they are a changin’”.
In our most recent product update, we made it even easier for viewers of your content to share it with others. When an author has specified that their presentation should be enabled for sharing, the viewer will see a new icon in the bottom right corner of the player (or at the top of our embeddable player). This is a traditional icon that represents sharing content. When clicked, the user will see the option to email using the form provided in the Brainshark player (the only option previously available), as well as the option to share to the most popular social networking sites, or send using their own email client. Here is a snapshot of what this looks like in our standard player:
By putting these choices right in front of the viewer it means there is more opportunity for your content to be shared and your message to be heard. So get crackin’ on that new content – we’re ready to help you spread the word!
