Good news for content providers: today we’re unveiling a set of features aimed at making it easy to distribute your content to your users and others on the web. These tools include a wizard which enables you to provide your content to your users in new feed formats, including RSS, Google Gadgets, and more as “chicklets” on your website. Just choose the content you want to distribute and the formats for distributing it, and the wizard will generate the HTML code that you can embed directly into your site or blog. The feeds are simply transformed Dapps, so they are always up to date.
Another exciting part of today’s release is the ability to ascribe licenses to your content allowing you to determine how users can or cannot use your content through the Dapper service. These licenses include several Creative Commons licenses, for those of you familiar with the organization. We’re very happy to be working with the good people at Creative Commons and are sure that together we can do great things. By licensing your content, you can gain significant exposure and traffic for your website as well as empower valuable applications all over the web to use your content legitimately.
We’re excited by these new offerings and we hope that they will bring value to all of you who are out there producing great content. As always, we aim to empower you by enabling you to sensibly distribute your content through the Dapper service. Your feedback is critical in this process and we’re very open to hearing from you. Please contact us with any comments, questions, concerns, or bug reports.
