Pressitt.com gets some TLC

Over the last couple of months we’ve been working hard on the new version of Pressitt. If you haven’t heard of Pressitt it’s a site dedicated to the creation and release of social media news releases. We’ve been involved in the design and development of the Pressitt platform and the latest version has several updates and improvements.

So, what is Pressitt?

Pressitt allows you to create your own social media news release (SMNR) – also known as a social media press release (SMPR) or social media release (SMR), and publish it to an online community of journalists, the blogosphere and the general public.

Many journalists use the Internet as their primary research source when compiling a story. Pressitt SMNRs are designed with journalists and bloggers in mind. A Pressitt SMNR encapsulates all the information, multimedia and images needed to prepare a story, while offering contact details for more information, all without the usual PR fluff.

The Pressitt SMNR template offers all of the core information found in a traditional press release, but additionally takes advantage of linking, multimedia and Web 2.0 shareable features. It allows users to host downloadable hi-res images within their releases, along with PowerPoint presentations, and PDFs – YouTube videos can also be embedded. Each brand using the service is assigned its own RSS feed, and press contacts can be reached via LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook. Additionally, up-to-date bookmarking and sharing icons are presented including Posterous, Yammer and Sphinn.

Once created your SMNR can be published to the Pressitt platform and shared to social networks or via an email link to your contacts and colleages.

101 Best HTML5 Sites

HTML5 is the latest standard for all HTML websites. It’s been in development since 2004 and is just now being added to browsers.

HTML 5 introduces a whole set of new elements that make it much easier to structure pages. For a complete overview and introduction to what HTML5 can offer to designers and coders, I recommend taking a look at this article over at A List Apart.

We’re currently in the process of converting the site to use HTML5 but haven’t quite finished it yet!
