Spot.IM is the first company to offer publishers a social engagement solution for mobile apps with a monetization feature that is seamlessly integrated with the page.

“Audiences today only visit publisher sites for a few seconds before escaping to Facebook to discuss the content, and this is a huge challenge for publishers,” said Nadav Shoval, co-founder and CEO at Spot.IM. “We’re committed to solving this problem by building communities to keep users engaged on publisher sites. Our native SDK now extends the community functionality to mobile apps and we’re thrilled to release it for all publishers to enjoy and users to experience.”

Spot.IM offers publishers a variety of community engagement solutions including Real-Time Conversation which powers communication with automatic moderation and Community Recirculation, a website module that promotes the most popular content from the publisher’s site along with its associated user-generated content and a monetization component that triggers display and video ads after users engage. Other Spot.IM solutions include its Newsfeed, Social Live Blogging, Live Broadcast, Social Reviews, and Community Pages.
