MADISON, Wis. (5/6/11)--Notice anything new in News Now today? Hint: Look at the bottom of this article and you will see two brand new buttons--Tweet and Facebook's Share--now live and ready to use. Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Vice President of Editorial Communications Lisa McCue said of the change, "As our readers know, CUNA's News Now is always on the lookout for innovations that makes sense for our readers and bring them the news they need in delivery formats they want. We closely monitor and analyze how widely used News Now's interactive e-mail and print button functions are. We also have watched the rapid growth in the number of readers who subscribe to and disseminate News Now's "Live Wire" tweets. "Seeing how popular those functions have proven to be, CUNA's Web Services department has stepped up News Now's interactive features another notch, so now our readers can send its articles in their tweets or share them with Facebook friends," McCue said. "This is a direct outgrowth of the high use of our interactive features, and of CUNA's desires to remain the premier source of news for credit unions." The buttons appear at the end of each article.
