TechCrunch has informed that Pheedo Launches Social Media Ad Widgets:
RSS ad network Pheedo will announce a new service tonight – advertising widgets powered by RSS and incorporating several social media tools. Readers familiar with Techmeme’s advertising program will recognize the ideas here – companies today are producing creative content to drive visitors to their websites and that content can be leveraged explicitly as advertising. Pheedo hopes to make this approach scalable and widely deployed. The widgets can be placed on any web page and in many other ad networks.
Example of widgets are visible on the Pheedo home page. They can be populated by any RSS feed. Items in the feed are followed by buttons to tag those items in third party social bookmarking sites of the advertiser’s choice. Moreover, Video feeds can also be served up in the widget as well, but for now a linked thumbnail is displayed.
