LOS ANGELES, Feb. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- PostRelease, a leading innovator in native advertising technology, has announced it is changing its name to Nativo to reflect the growth, evolution and expanded capabilities of the advertising platform.
The original concept behind PostRelease, a play on the phrase "press release," was to automate the insertion of sponsored posts in communities and blogs. The technology now enables the automated placement of a wide variety of sponsored or promoted content into any type of site across desktops, tablets and mobile devices. The new name reinforces the platform's focus on enabling native advertising.
"Our platform provides the first scalable and easy-to-deploy solution for truly native placement of content-based advertising.

It is important for us to have a name that clearly communicates the core focus of the vast amount of flexibility and technology we've created."

The system enables publishers to sell and manage native ad placements with the same controls they have over their display advertising.
