Stipple Launches E-Commerce in the Facebook News Feed

Interactive Photos Unlock Massive Revenue Opportunities for Brands on Facebook

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/30/13 -- Stipple, the leader in image-based e-commerce and advertising, today announced the ability to drive e-commerce directly from within the Facebook News Feed. The introduction of e-commerce into the News Feed, which is where Facebook's more than one billion users consume the majority of their content, creates a massive new opportunity for brands to efficiently drive revenue from their followers. This is the most promising evolution to-date in unlocking the full potential of the global social platform.

"Stipple has developed an innovative way for consumers to learn more about products and for advertisers to drive traffic and sales from within Facebook and other social channels," said Scott Allan, SVP Global Marketing, Rakuten LinkShare Corporation. "Stipple represents the continuous innovation within the Rakuten LinkShare Network and we are thrilled to have them featured at the Rakuten LinkShare Symposium San Francisco, where advertisers will be able to meet the Stipple team in person to learn more about how to package up relevant product videos, photos and updated pricing into a single post."

Stipple's unique technology enables brands to share an array of interactive content from a single post. Examples of the interactive content include "shop" buttons with real-time pricing and product information, videos, photos and much more. For the first time, brands' followers will be able to fully explore relevant and accurate content without needing to click to another page or website, or download an app.

Stipple is launching its Facebook integration with premier brands and athletes including Sony Pictures, PEOPLE, Karmaloop and San Francisco 49er Chris Culliver (#29). Stipple works with leading merchants, including Nordstrom, Nike, and L'Oreal, as well as more than 5,000 publisher website partners.

"The combination of a billion monthly active users, granular targeting and now e-commerce with Stippled images makes Facebook even more appealing for brands, and is a compelling reason for them to continue acquiring followers," said Rey Flemings, founder and CEO, Stipple.

This news follows Stipple's recent integration with Twitter, which created in-stream, interactive and e-commerce opportunities with Twitter's 200 million monthly active users.
