Revamping The Readcast
October 10, 2012 (San Francisco, CA) --
Sharing what you read on Scribd just became awhole lot easier.This week we gave Readcast a new polished look and feel.“Readcast” is Scribd’s very own way to allow you to broadcast the interesting documents youpublish and read to your Scribd network. One aspect of the revamp is the tighter integration with our new branding. The Readcastbutton that appears over each document now sports a slick-looking icon. Scribd users now seethe icon on each item of their Reading Feed to make it easier to share that content with their followers on Scribd. From a usability standpoint, the new Readcast function simplifies the process significantly.Documents can now be ‘Readcasted’ within Scribd with just a single click. Users looking toexplicitly share content on other social networks like Facebook and Twitter, now separatelyhave that option. As part of this upgrade, we also integrated “Readcast what you read,” which allows our users toeffortlessly share within Scribd and onto Facebook, with the Readcast button.
