Yappn Integrates FanTalk to Include Major Social Networks in Yappn Discussion Boards

Scrolling social global feeds create fuel for topic discussions

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- (Marketwired) -- 05/02/13 -- Yappn Corp. (OTCBB:YPPN) ("Yappn or the "Company") is pleased to announce that its development platform, Yappn (www.yappn.com), an upcoming online multi-lingual social community where people can meet, chat, engage and consume media, set to fully launch in Summer 2013, will incorporate Intertainment Media Inc.'s (TSX VENTURE:INT)(OTCQX:ITMTF)(FRANKFURT:I4T) FanTalk technology creating the Yappn Global Feed platform. The FanTalk technology enables major social media like Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Instagram YouTube and other applications to co-exist in one location in up to 70 languages. The Yappn Global Feed will provide Yappn users with a "rolling ticker tape" of the latest social media activity about specific Yappn topic based discussion boards. This will create a single location for users to pick up all the latest information and discussion on virtually any topic in almost any language.

Yappn is currently finalizing the design of the Global Feed to include select revenue and sponsorship opportunities.

Initially introduced by Intertainment Media as an experimental platform mid 2012, FanTalk allows users to interact with major social media from a single online location integrating Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Instagram, YouTube and other major social media platforms for any topic.

FanTalk was successfully deployed with KISS and Daughtry in the Summer / Fall 2012 and then implemented into a number of other online programs. Using its partnership with Ortsbo (www.ortsbo.com), FanTalk, and now Yappn will make these feeds available in up to 70 languages.

Yappn will expand the FanTalk program allowing Yappn users who create topic discussion boards on virtually any topic with the ability to add specific social media "tags" to their discussion board. The resulting application will produce a social media scrolling feed across the top of each Yappn topic discussion page containing the latest information from each feed in a single area.

This added feature will allow discussion participants to see what the "social world at large" is saying about a topic and will provide a consolidated location for all social media and add an additional dimension of interactivity to Yappn.

"At Yappn, we are committed to improving the way users engage with each other and brands by focusing on the propensity towards similar common interests," said David Lucatch Founder and CEO Yappn Corp. "By adding our new Global Feed program, and allowing it to flow in almost 70 languages, users can now see what everyone is saying about a topic without having to leave Yappn."

Consumers are encouraged to sign up for the Yappn beta program and can learn more about the platform at www.yappn.com.
