Helping Brands Get A Return On Their Facebook Investment, Pays Off For North Social

Vocus, a leading provider of cloud-based marketing and PR software, has acquired North Social, a software company that provides Facebook applications that enable businesses to create, manage and promote their business on Facebook.
North Social is the latest addition to the Vocus earned marketing suite that helps organizations reach and influence buyers across social networks, online and through the media.
North Social offers 19 different Facebook apps delivered in a single self-service subscription, allowing businesses of all sizes to create engaging fan pages and fan experiences.
“It’s about more than just a compelling or a visually appealing Facebook page,” says Alex Bernstein, co-founder of North Social. “North Social provides organizations with an easy and innovative way to engage customers and drive measurable results.”
North Social is used by over 1,300 organizations of all sizes and types, including global brands such as Coca-Cola, Sony and Hard Rock Café. North Social’s operations and staff will remain in Oakland, California.
