Checkthis founder and designer Frédéric della Faille calls its new Social Posters “the natural evolution of self-expression on the Web,” and while that’s a bold (and vague) statement, the simplicity of these posters make them surprisingly easy to build, and the tool itself succeeds where many WYSIWYG site and blog design interfaces fail. This means getting your message out to the world doesn’t take long, and making it look good isn’t difficult; just add your content, pick a theme, customize it if you’re not satisfied and click “Publish.” Checkthis explains that you can even ”ask questions with polls or allow purchases via Paypal.” The social aspect of Checkthis’ Social Poster lies in its right sidebar, which lets users like, comment and share. These actions are shown in a timeline feed, which makes the posters feel more alive. Admittedly, the posters also look a bit more crowded with busy social sidebars, but that sacrifice turns a static page into something more interactive.
