THR partners with Meebo
How to utilize the website's new sharing toolsTHR.com has added some exciting new functionality to its website to make content-sharing even easier.
Users of the site may have noticed a new horizontal bar running along the bottom of their browser windows (just above the status bar). This new feature comes courtesy of our new partner Meebo, which facilitates the sharing of THR.com links and images across Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, email and Meebo itself.
Meebo provides a quick-and-easy way for providing friends the stories and snapshots that catch your eye -- especially in an online chat environment. Just click on the bar in the lower right of your screen to pull up a list of options; if you are not already registered with Meebo, doing so allows you to utilize not only Meebo chat, but instant-messaging across other popular services as well.
See a THR.com headline that you’d like to show a friend, or maybe a photo of their favorite celebrity? Move your mouse over the link or image you'd like to share, then drag and drop the content to the appropriate social network via the menu of options that will instantly appear on screen.
While the Meebo bar is on every page of THR.com, its full sharing features will only be available at launch on the home page and About Town galleries of THR.com. But look for those features to be added across the entire site in the coming weeks.
For more on Meebo, check out a demonstration of the technology. Then come back to THR.com and give it a try.
