SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- 1World continues its momentum with three related announcements as it has 1) become the leader in its sector as according to the independent Alexa rankings, 2) is announcing today the acquisition of Flipter, the leading opinion gathering and online polling vendor in Latin America, and 3) has won 2014 OnMedia 50 Companies to Watch honors from AlwaysOn.
By combining attractive and engaging online polling and debating solutions with expert opinions and data points, 1World's service allows companies to engage their audience through attractive "native polls", increase site traffic, accurately discover customer opinions, and collect valuable data. Already present on over 400 sites such as the San Francisco Examiner, Blog Catalog (largest blogging network in the world with over 400,000 member blogs), and Project Syndicate (a site which features editorial opinions from world-famous experts from around the world) the user-friendly platform offers an expansive suite of features and online product modules.
"By being at the forefront of the web engagement and social research spheres, publishers can use our 1World model to compliment their content via native polling and related solutions. Our platform builds 'smart profiles' of readers and site users, giving publications a much richer data set that includes not only demographic information, but invaluable behavioural, psychographic, and brand-preference information," explained Damien Leostic, CPO, 1World co-founder, and former Product Line Director at Motorola Mobility and Google.
1World has been in "hockey stick" growth mode for its service over 2014 and has recently surpassed its 750,000th member-user and is regularly logging now over 10M user sessions on a monthly basis. Thus, it is no surprise that starting in August 1World became the highest ranked engagement application and polling vendor on the Internet, according to Alexa rankings, an independent web site popularity measurement service.
1World also is announcing today its first M&A of its short, three year history. 1World has come to terms on the acquisition of Flipter, the leading opinion gathering polling tool in Latin America. Flipter will become 1World's Latin America division, serving both Central and South America. Terms of the deal are not being made public, but Flipter will now begin to operate as 1World Latin America and over time Flipter customers will be transitioned to the 1World multi-lingual publisher platform.
1World has been winning awards and accolades of late, and the recent selection to the OnMedia 50 list of the leading digital media market entrants is a direct reflection of the success the company has achieved throughout 2014. The OnMedia 50 winners were selected from among hundreds of other technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2014 list.
