Sacramento Connect, the social media and linking network that debuts Monday on sacbee.com and on other blogs and sites in the region, uses a toolbar powered by Meebo, Yahoo and Lingospot through customization by Bee web developers. The toolbar will help readers search for and find related content across the Sacramento Connect network and easily share it through Facebook, Twitter and email. The Bee intends to continually expand and update its list of handpicked content-linking partners, thus enriching readers experience in easily finding related, quality content.
While the toolbar is sort of the glue that holds the network together, it is only one part of Sacramento Connect. On sacbee.com you may have already seen some of our topic pages powered by Lingospot, such as our pages on Arnold Schwarzenegger, Arco Arena or
So when readers click content from Sacramento Connect they will also be helping launch more topic pages on sacbee.com. Bee editors will also look to create some topic pages that showcase Sacramento Connect content.
We will also have a landing page on sacbee.com for Sacramento Connect. The page will feature content from Sacramento Connect that is generating the most clicks from readers that day, the most recent posts, and featured content from Bee editors looking for content they find newsy or interesting. As Bee editors find newsy or interesting content across the network, they will also be tweeting links and posting links on Facebook.
On Friday, we'll discuss how the toolbar will make it easier to find the content you want.
