GoFISHn Unveils New Feature to Keep Anglers Connected


New fishing social network launches innovative widgets to provide better interaction with members

GoFISHn (www.gofishn.com), a social and marketing network aimed at connecting anglers, announced the roll-out of a new feature today that allows GoFISHn members to connect their personal blogs and websites with GoFISHn.

GoFISHn Widgets are small, self-updating content modules—mini-billboards—that display content and links from a GoFISHn member’s profile on another website or blog.

“We make it as easy as possible for anglers, guides, charter captains, and other fishing-related business owners to keep their friends and clients updated,” says Ned Desmond, president and founder of Go Sportn Inc., the parent of GoFISHn. “GoFISHn already distributes our members’ posts on Facebook, Twitter, Google and all around GoFISHn itself. With the addition of GoFIShn Widgets, our members can also distribute their updates on blogs and websites. One post on GoFISHn can really get around.”

GoFISHn launched three types of widgets (blog.gosportn.com/gosportn/2010/01/gofishn-launches-widgets-.html) to allow anglers to choose whether they want to share all of their GoFISHn updates, just the pictures they post, or a small “find me” badge. The GoFISHn Widgets take minutes to put in place on an existing website. GoFISHn members can access the instructions and the code for their profile widget simply by logging into GoFISHn, clicking on the yellow “edit profile” button, and then clicking on “GoFISHn Widgets.”

“For the GoFISHn angler, widgets are a fun way to show off your GoFISHn updates,” says Desmond. “For the GoFISHn Pro, they help keep your existing or prospective customers informed on what you’re catching or if you have any upcoming availability. It makes GoFISHn the one-stop place on the Internet to broadcast your news.”

GoSportn Inc. is a start-up social media and technology company based in California and Maryland. GoFISHn is its first launch. For more information, visit www.gofishn.com/info/about.
