New Mashable is finally out

new_mashbale

Mashable, the blog giant in the social media niche , has unveiled the new look. Earlier today, the site had been down for maintenance  But, now, they are back with a new look. The Mashable team claim that this new version of Mashable will deliver a better experience on every devices covering tablets, smartphones, desktop PCs and laptops.  The new Mashable is more close to social media with better visuals and integration with social media sites.

The change to new Mashable was driven by the fact that  mobile devices and social media sites are enhancing their share in web engagement. The new version features a social startup page where everything is organised in a column format. The site is more optimized to attract more social shares. The site basically can be considered as 3-column format. The left column is  called “The New Stuff”, the center column contains the more big things and the right most column contains posts which are currently hot. In the starting page, advertisements are too low. As of now, I could find an advertisement and that too in the middle part of the rightmost column.

The single page layout features a two-column design. But right after the post content and it’s comments, you can find a three-column layout which is similar to the layout of the landing page of the new Mashable.

Another great new feature is that images, video and some text elements are individually shareable. The adevertisments will be more content oriented and context-aware. This will be included in the main content stream.

      Entire world is moving towards html 5 and web 3.0. So, everyone trying out responsive designs is no surprise. Let’s hope some web giants go for RoR. Or, let’s hope twitter roll back to the RoR framework ;-)

      Thanks a lot for dropping in my site HPS

    Its good the see that HTML5 is becoming a standard, web 3.0 was my seminar topic at college… If the world become truely schematic, then there would an information explosion…

    ROR + bootstrap framework was always responsive… :D thats the fun with rails, you use rails and rails will enforce you to follow some of these practices…

    One upcoming Giant is going to build using ROR… :D

    Btw, I have been a reader of your blog since college.. :) Nice to see its becoming active again..

      Thanks for being a reader of my blog. Yes, the blog is active again. But, the hard thing is to get good traffic I need to be consistent in posting articles. This has compromised the quality of the blog lately :-(

      But, I think it’s worth it
