As one of the leading social networks for gamers, Raptr is expanding its service by adding a powerful news platform to its repertoire. Everything that you know and love about Raptr is still there, only now your profile page has evolved. This new feature allows users of the site to submit their favorite stories around the web, which are then voted on by the community to get bumped up into a featured section. The submitted news stories are automatically pushed to users’ profiles based on their profile and gaming habits.
“At Raptr we’re reinventing the way people stay connected and informed about the games they care about”, said Dennis Fong, CEO of Raptr. “We’re excited by the launch of the new community-driven website because it builds upon the success of our existing service and provides a new way to discover and share content.”
The new Raptr platform also dynamically calculates relevant content for each gamer, based on their recent games played, and aids in finding new content by gaming preference data like genre, publishers, and even developers. The best part is, the gaming community can get involved by submitting their favorite gaming related news from anywhere on the internet, as well as sharing videos, screenshots, status updates, and even reviews.
