RebelMouse, a New York based, social media publishing platform, has received $10 million in fresh funding in a series A round led by Oak Investment Partners, SoftBank, Sterling Investment Partners and Michael Lazerow.
“Our aim at RebelMouse has always been to make it easy for everyone to create sites that better engage their audiences, and we’re excited to share that today, we’re one step closer to achieving this goal,” said Paul Berry, founder and CEO of RebelMouse
Launched in 2012, Rebelmouse is an online social platform allowing users to pull their content together from across social networks. It works as a social front page which automatically updates changes on the personal web pages of its users as they post on social networks or blog on their website. The website works as an aggregator of Tweets, Facebook updates and Instagram photos into a single, Pinterest-tile-like page.
The website at first glance looks like a ‘Pinterest on steroids’, but is available with different themes allowing users to redesign the digital newspaper of their social lives, the way they want.
Other than a free account, with no privileges than simply having all your social activity on RebelMouse’s website, its premium account, available for $9.99 a month offers an account pointing to a personal domain name with custom CSS tools to edit the web pages – offering a good alternative for enterprises to manage their blogs as a one digital magazine.
Earlier, Rebelmouse raised seed round of $2.5 million from a number of investors including Oak Investment Partners, SoftBank, NEA, First Round Capital Partners, betaworks, Chris Dixon, John Batelle, Gary Vaynerchuk, Greg Coleman, Howard Lindzon, Lerer Ventures and Jonah Peretti.
For all those social network stars of their community, who never heard of such platforms and would love to give a try, few other options for them include – Glossi , Vizify and Hypermarks.
Recently Scoop.it, another San Francisco based social content curation platform raised $2.6 million series A funding.
