NEW YORK, NY – December 9, 2013 – Yappn Corp (OTCQB:YPPN) (“Yappn” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that Yappn Chat (http://chat.yappn.com), had a significant increase in user engagement in November 2013 with over 1.1 Million unique visitors to its platform. Yappn also saw a major rise in the online Alexa rankings breaking into the Top 200,000 sites worldwide after launching its full site just over 2 months ago on September 21, 2013. Recent commercial pages for major entertainment programs like Thor, the Dark World, Frozen and several artists have seen engagement of up to 28 minutes per Yappn social page.
Yappn chat and Yappn’s other social acceleration, publishing and eCommerce tools are available in almost 70 languages providing brands and users the ability to engage in real time using their preferred language. Yappn’s tools create unique user experiences that promote globalization without a language barrier.
Yappn’s mission is to give people and brands the power to be social, conduct commerce and communicate freely without a language barrier. Whether it is entertainment, sports, products or social topics, brands can now engage with fans around the world in real time in almost any language.
In the US alone, over 66 Million people don’t speak English at home, according to the 2011 Census and over 67% of people online globally don’t surf in English. Yappn breaks down the language barrier, in real time, providing chat and other services that make communication seamless.
Creating new and ingenious ways to reach a growing online global audience using native and multi-lingual engagement strategies is one of the prime missions of Yappn. This includes the ability to create multiple online pages and revenue opportunities from the same, original content using Yappn’s tools, effectively creating new and additional forms of online content or “real estate” to which advertising and other monetization events can be attached. Yappn delivers its services in HTML 5, allowing content to be built once but deployed across almost all devices including web, mobile, tablets and smartphones.
“Yappn is finding key interest in our multi-lingual social engagement and eCommerce programs as agencies, publishers, retailers, artists and brands look to engage their audiences in a cost effective and efficient manner,” commented David Lucatch, Founder and CEO of Yappn. “Device, connection and location for online services is no longer an issue, so as global audiences continue to grow, Yappn believes that businesses will turn to our services to deliver relevant, localized language social content, online real estate and eCommerce solutions that make good economic and market sense and improve the bottom line.”
Yappn provides a “one stop” commercial solution for a brand’s global social media consolidation efforts, creating consumption channels in multiple languages. The increased time spent on Yappn brand pages can be part of the Yappn network and / or be private labelled for digital platforms allowing brands to create additional engagement, commerce and interactive opportunities to further provide users with value.
Yappn continues its development of new, revenue driven feature sets. Each new feature set is built on a prime revenue driver for Yappn as it continues to work with clients and their agencies to develop new deployment tools and programs to reach an expanding global audience.
