Shout ‘Em Features

This co-brandable microblog system is not short on features. It has great customization options and a premium option similar to other social sites that allows for a variety of branding choices, Shout‘Em claims ease of use that matches Twitter. It was also designed to integrate flawlessly with mobile browsers. The Basics of Shout'Em Microblogging Shout‘Em works exactly like other microblogs. The difference is that Twitter is massive and does not contain niche related groups or industry related targeting. With Shout'Em you can create niche related, industry targeted microblog systems to cut down on the amount of people and junk that simply do not pertain. And you get to administrate it, customize it down to actual CSS and market it. The company has put together a customized microblog system specifically for Mashable which can be seen below: mashable_shoutem.jpg
