We’re excited that WRAL.com – a major local CBS affiliate in North Carolina – is live with the Gigya platform.
In addition to Social Login and Sharing, WRAL has also included some of Gigya’s newest features, including our Share Plugin. Adding some fun to the weather section, people can share their reaction to the forecast. Looks like far more WRAL viewers in Raleigh are “happy” about the sunny and warm forecast!
When people react to the weather, they also have the opportunity to share that reaction with friends:
WRAL.com visitors can also now register or login to the site using an existing identity from Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, LinkedIn or AOL via Gigya’s Social login plugin, and they can also share content from any part of the site using the Gigya share bar. The poll on the right hand side of the sports fan section – NCAA March Madness of course – also automatically suggests that people who vote on the poll share their vote back out to their friends on social networks, driving additional traffic to the site and poll:
Congrats to the WRAL.com team – Peter Lawrence, Jason Priebe and John Conway, who did such a phenomenal job and have been so great to work with!
