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.
