Mashable

I got this post today. Had Snap Shots on all my blogs, but had to take them away to be able to better managed blogger blogs. Some people like them. I do. And some feel snap-shots are "too much" for a site; they want to view clean sites. I might add Snap Shots again on some of my blogs. I do have a Mashable account, but tend to forget it.

Dear Website Owner,

Mashable, the world's largest blog focused exclusively on social networks, and Snap Technologies, publisher of Snap Shots, announced today that Mashable has incorporated Snap Shots on its site.

"Snap Shots is a major player in the blog world and we're excited to add their functionality to Mashable," said Pete Cashmore, CEO and founder of Mashable. "We think our readers will appreciate the ability to mouse over links and have Snap deliver the content they're pointing to."

Mashable, which Technorati.com rates as one of the most influential blogs on the Internet, is the latest of many to add Snap Shots, including Michael Arrington's TechCrunch.com and Guy Kawasaki's "How To Change The World", as well the major blogging platforms Wordpress, Six Apart, and Xanga.

"We are thrilled that Mashable is enhancing with Snap Shots," said Tom McGovern, CEO Snap Technologies, "because it's required reading for our team. Pete and his team influence us every day and we're glad to return the favor."

From its launch in 2005 to the present, Mashable has grown alongside the mainstream acceptance of the social media sites like MySpace, YouTube, Bebo and FaceBook that it chronicles. Snap Shots, which was launched in 2006, enhances over 2,000,000 websites and blogs and its browser add-on has been downloaded over 500,000 times.
