Share it Live on the Fourth of July

During this past weekend’s Club H.O.G. rally in Bricktown, we launched our partnership with Share it Live, a photo-sharing application developed by visionaries working the OPUBCO Communications Group Audience Development department.

It’s an iPhone application with a unique slogan – “a new era in citizen journalism.”

The partnership last week was a success. Developers who focus on NewsOK built used the Share it Live API to build a customized area on the NewsOK hog rally coverage page. We received dozens of photos from the event.

Now we’re going to try the same thing on a wider scale – the Fourth of July.

Here’s our thinking. The Club H.O.G. rally was in specific locations in Oklahoma City. But the Fourth of July happens everywhere.

It doesn’t matter how you are celebrating.

A cookout at home? Share it Live.

A parade? Share it Live.

Going to a fireworks show? Share it Live.

If it’s happening on July 4 (or July 3, for that matter …. oh, heck, we’ll take photos from July 1 and 2, as well), please share it on NewsOK. You can upload through the iPhone application or you can simply upload through NewsOK’s Fourth of July page.

I wasn’t at the Club H.O.G. rally, so I couldn’t Share it live. But come Saturday, I have no excuse. I will be Sharing it Live – I promise.
