Sharing is Caring: some new widgets for you

Quite often, we get asked by publishers and bloggers to be able to use our content in their publications.  Generally we love to get the word out about the unique things we are doing with computer vision, machine learning, and social analytics, so we welcome this.    That said, still pictures don't really do our product justice.

With that in mind, we're taking the first step by allowing anyone to now share social cards from Blinkfire Analytics, through making linking and embedding easy.

For instance, if you wanted to embed a social card of Oscar and have his engagement numbers update automatically as they go up up up, simply hover over the ellipsis on the card, and choose "Embed this post" like so:

On these embedded widgets you can mouse over our content on your website and get updated engagement stats.

Likewise, you could just share one of these Electronic Arts branded links directly by choosing "Direct link to this post" :

Link to EAFutbol Item

which links to a page that is easy to share in emails and looks like this:



This is just the tip of the iceberg on our Developer API plans. Stay tuned for more, and in the meantime, share away!
