As the social web becomes more woven into the fabric of our online lives, there is a great opportunity for organizations to leverage social media tools that enable word of mouth marketing through their users/members. The social publishing capabilities with RPX are helping organizations unlock that value, and are being utilized by many websites to grow brand awareness and create referral traffic to their site.

FoxNews, for example, enables online readers to publish article comments to Facebook, Twitter and MySpace, all through a simple interface provided through RPX:

Share your comment

Once published, a user’s friends can view the comment from within the Facebook news feed and then easily track back to FoxNews.com to check out the article and begin engaging with the site.

RPX possesses flexible deployment options that enable our customers to customize the user’s social publishing experience to match the needs of their site.

Qype, a top business ratings & reviews site in Europe, lets members share their reviews with friends on multiple social networks, leveraging the social APIs abstracted by RPX to roll out their own interface:

Within the RPX dashboard, customers can gain actionable analytics to determine the total number activities published by users and measure all new referral visitors generated to the site. Customers can also track the proliferation of user-generated content from their site across the social web, helping determine the most popular publishing destinations for users, and to how many social networks such content gets shared.
