New features include:
- Lockers: Imagine if you could easily collaborate with others to bring together the best content, all in one place. Hello, Lockers. Lockers are public collections of things that interest you. Collect anything from classic sports video clips to keepsake news articles to your favorite music.
- Unified Conversations: Imagine if the conversation wasn't limited to just your friends. With LockerDome 3.0 conversations about the same topic are merged into a single, unified conversation. Discover like-minded people and topics that you actually care about, all in one place.
- Embeddable Content: Imagine if you could easily populate your website with feeds of the best content from around the web. Within seconds you can now embed LockerDome content and activity feeds into your website; it's as easy as copying and pasting.
"In 2012, we made an aggressive bet on the evolution of social media from friends to interests," said Gabe Lozano, LockerDome co-founder and CEO. "Building on our strength in the sports market, we started quietly building a network anchored by things we like, as opposed to people we know. The bet is paying off, as the market demand for interest-based platforms is skyrocketing. Today marks day one of introducing our vision for this market to our millions of users and the world. Say hello to LockerDome 3.0."
"LockerDome 3.0 is one of the most exciting developments we have seen in social media, and you can bet it's where our fans will be able to engage with our coolest content," said Angela Leaney, Harlem Globetrotters International Inc., Executive Vice President, Brand Marketing. "Our fans will get the inside track on the Globetrotters unique blend of sports and entertainment, and as you'd expect from us, there will definitely be laughs and surprises. It represents a seismic advance in how the Globetrotters can activate our global fan base. We're psyched to be involved."
In conjunction with the launch of LockerDome 3.0 the Harlem Globetrotters will kick off a 30-day "What's in our Locker?" contest, aimed at highlighting the unique new tools the platform offers and providing an inside look into one of sports entertainment's most storied properties. The contest will be filled with exclusive content and VIP giveaways.
LockerDome 3.0 continues to build upon its strengths as a publishing platform for top media properties, celebrities, brands, and professional sports teams. In addition to gaining access to Lockers, unified conversations, and embeddable content, publishers will also benefit from LockerDome's core publisher tools – contests, quizzes, and polls – having all undergone significant upgrades. LockerDome's high-profile publisher list includes media properties, such as Lee Enterprises, Defy Media (a merger between Alloy Digital and Break Media), Woven Media, Operation Sports, and Gannett; star athletes, such as Troy Polamalu, Larry Fitzgerald, Ray Lewis, Hunter Pence, and the Upton brothers; and world-class entertainment promotional firms, such as Golden Boy Promotions and Mayweather Promotions.
