FORT WORTH, Texas, June 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- For those who enjoy finding the perfect quote for every occasion, Quotery.com (http://www.quotery.com) has distinguished itself as a clear leader in that regard. Quotery.com's clean design and smoothly efficient user interface set it apart from the bulk of unattractive, cluttered and often uninformative quotation sites that litter the web. Now, the site has added user profiles to the mix as part of building community and interaction around a vast catalog of picture quotes.

User profiles will enable visitors to bookmark favorite authors, quotes and topics. Frequent users can quickly build their own personalized collections of evocative quotes. Even more, users will have the luxury of not just browsing existing picture quotes, but uploading their own as well. Uploaded content can then be associated with the quote already on the site, which includes data such as source, context, variations, author profiles and more. Anyone with a profile can follow other users and their collections.

"We're 'merging' the niche to create the ultimate one-stop resource for everything related to quotes," explained Founder Jason Bacchetta. "No other site combines all of our features and functions, and no other site has been designed to maximize both ease of use and visual appeal across all platforms – desktop, tablet and mobile. Usability testing against our competitors has shown that users need only half the time to find what they're looking for."

A quick survey of the Internet quote website landscape reveals the truth in Bacchetta's characterization. Wikiquote, for example, is a fine site if one is looking for accurate attribution, but the dated layout is an eyesore. On the other hand, Pinterest deserves all the accolades it receives for visual interest and navigation, but lacking anything like curation, there's no way to ensure the accuracy of quotes found on the site. Perhaps more importantly, it's not possible to search for specific quotes.

Research has shown that quotes consistently drive the most interaction on the major social networks – more than photos, articles or infographics. Picture quotes simply dominate the landscape of Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Tumblr and Twitter. Bacchetta leapt upon this opportunity: "Now Quotery.com wants sharing to originate from its own site, potentially driving millions of users to it as the source of that content so often shared elsewhere."

By offering plenty of data like attribution to go along with picture quotes, Quotery.com is fast becoming a quality resource for educators, students and journalists. Each quote features a "Cite This Source" button with the ability to format a citation in all major styles – MLA, APA and CMS.

The team at Quotery.com have even more intriguing plans for the near future. An API for developers is currently in the works that will enable webmasters to build site content into their own site or app. In addition, Quotery.com will soon release a collection of famous and popular quotes in book form.

Quotery.com has picked up significant social media momentum in its own right. At last tally, the site had 114,000 Facebook fans and 53,000 Twitter followers. The recent site redesign and enhancements should boost those numbers even further.
