Shocase aims to be a social network for communicators

The creators of the new social media platform just for communication pros tout the “best of LinkedIn, Pinterest, Facebook and YouTube.”

Marketers and PR pros rejoice: There’s a new social network just for you.

Shocase, a social media community for communication and marketing professionals, sales promotion professionals, advertisers, researchers and designers launched Wednesday morning.

“There are 100-plus million marketing professionals across the globe,” says Ron Young, Shocase’s founder and CEO. “Until now, there hasn’t been a dedicated social network to let this massive group get noticed, stay informed and build business.”

Individual PR and marketing pros can join Shocase, as can communications and marketing agencies. Both can hone news feed and network recommendations by selecting a particular area of interest—or users can sign up for all topics.

Shocase’s news feed looks similar to Facebook or Ello, but is designed to show users news and trends in their respective industries. Follower suggestions are lined up next to the news feed, which enables individuals to explore PR and marketing specialists’ profiles.

Users can showcase their work on the social media platform in a manner similar to LinkedIn, with a healthy dose of Pinterest.
