NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- (Marketwired) -- 06/24/13 -- 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 in almost 70 languages, set to fully launch in Summer 2013, has in addition to its revenue focused programs, developed a social "soapbox" arena. This enterprise will allow celebrities, not for profit organizations and cause marketing programs to globalize their messaging, social activities, charitable and community initiatives in almost any language.
Celebrities have a powerful social voice allowing them to make a difference in communities at home and around the world. Their abilities to captivate and engage an audience together with their large fan bases and social followers around the world creates unique opportunities to establish global programs for both discussion and action. Yappn, as an integrated social platform that interconnects to Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram and other major social media platforms, in almost any language, provides the ideal setting to communicate with the world.
Yappn is working with management agencies, sports foundations and a number of global programs that are actively looking to increase their community voice in both their main language and other local and global markets.
By reducing or even eliminating the language barrier and providing a celebrity or brand with the ability to share dialogue as well as picture and video communications, the conversation begins to transcend geographic borders, creating new levels of engagement.
Yappn is also working with major brand agencies that are actively social and engaged in community programs through Cause Marketing platforms where profit brands and non-profit organizations mutually benefit by supporting local community and global "good works" initiatives.
Cause marketing in the US alone was a $1.7 Billion industry in 2012 according to a January 2013 research report by IEG with an expected increase of 4.8% in 2013.
