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