Megan Berry is the head of community and social product at RebelMouse.
Listen to Megan’s interview here.RebelMouse organizes your social presence into a beautiful, dynamic and social site — in minutes. It’s based on the idea that people are proud of what they share on social networks, but are starting to feel embarrassed about their websites. RebelMouse is your social front page and automatically updates as you post on social networks as well as when you blog directly on your site.
RebelMouse allows you to create a dynamic and social site, blog or profile. It’s used across individuals, publishers and small businesses. RebelMouse believes people are getting better and better with what they share. It reflects who they are or what their brand represents.
RebelMouse lets you get a webpage that updates as you do.
You start by connecting your social networks. RebelMouse creates a magazine-style layout that reflects everything you share on social. Users can either embed the RebelMouse format to their webpage or use it as their webpage.
Automatic curation determines what is prominent, but you can redesign how you want the modules to be laid out on your page, including locking stories in position while other stories update around it. The half-life of a tweet is two hours and Facebook is only a little longer.
As new social media technologies become available, RebelMouse integrates all the new tech into their sites. For example, when Vine first released, they had support within 24 hours.
There’s finally a place where social media is truly integrated. You can also integrate user-generated campaigns that you bring in with hashtags and mentions. Through relationships with brands, RebelMouse is able to push the envelope and find new ways to optimize.
They offer a Rebel Webinar that teaches you how to use RebelMouse to the best of its availability.
The service starts at free. Then, there are payment plans for embedding, using a domain name, Google analytics, integration with MailChimp and ad programs.
