NewsCloud Community Starter is free, open source software you can use to launch social media communities tightly integrated to Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus. While most content management systems designed for publishing tack on social features after the fact, NewsCloud Community Starter is designed with social media in mind from the start. Its features support user generated content and encourage engagement. Research conducted with our software by the University of Minnesota shows that these kinds of communities build audience loyalty and return visits. Use NewsCloud to tap into Facebook’s ever expanding audience, recently measured at 800,000 million users.
