Glossi, the digital publishing platform from social commerce company ThisNext, is going into public beta today, which means that a much broader group of people can use Glossi’s tools to build and publish their own online magazines with Glossi’s tools (though you still need an invitation).

CEO Matt Edelman said the company built Glossi in response to a number of different trends, including “the growth of visually-based content and social platforms.” To take advantage of those trends, Glossi allows both brands and individuals to publish content in a format that mirrors print magazines pretty closely while also incorporating rich media and digital distribution. (And Edelman isn’t the only one who sees an opportunity here — through their company AVOS Systems, YouTube co-founders Chad Hurley and Steve Chen have also launched a magazine publishing platform called Zeen.)
