Forbes Plans to Launch Series of Community Apps

first_img Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed, nor was a specific timeline for launching the apps, though Lewis D’Vorkin, chief product officer for Forbes, says they’re well into the development process already. He expects the company will have multiple new apps in the market by the end of this year. Specifically, Forbes will look to leverage the private sharing, notification and profile aspects of Camerama’s tech, as opposed to its photo capabilities. The company’s founder, Salah Akram Zalatimo, will also join Forbes as vice president of mobile products. D’Vorkin says it’s yet to be determined if the products will be free or paid, but monetization will stay close to the models Forbes uses already. While the publisher already has a handful of apps to its name—they range from standard magazine access points to more personalized utilities on topics like financial planning—they’re all essentially distribution mechanisms for Forbes editorial content. The new apps will have Forbes content on them, D’Vorkin says, but that won’t be the focus. “We’re moving forward on creating a series of apps that are much more about niche communities, very social network-esque, and aren’t just a distribution platform for [Forbes] content,” D’Vorkin says. “The bulk [of the content] will come from communities sharing, posting, working with each other within the app.”center_img “These apps will be about streams and streaming content, so our [native advertising platform] Brandvoice and our sponsorships will be the most suitable for this,” he says. “These apps are a wonderful way for us to appeal to smaller, niche audiences. It’s an area of the marketplace that advertisers want to reach. They want the right group of people in a very curated environment. So we’ll be able to accomplish two of our goals with our targeted apps and the scale of the website.” Forbes Media bought photo-sharing app, Camerama, Monday as part of a larger effort to establish several niche app environments for its community. App development is the latest tech venture Forbes has taken in recent years. The company has invested heavily in its own site and, notably, its contributor network CMS, Forbes Falcon, which was licensed to B2B publisher ALM in 2013.last_img read more

Lucifer will end but the devil could return for spinoff producer says

first_img Tags Fans responded with thanks to the cast and Netflix for the show’s run. Modrovich tweeted to one fan that a spinoff series or a movie isn’t off the table. Lauren German and Tom Ellis, the show’s leads, had posted on Instagram last month about the show’s fifth and final season. Later the stars tweeted their thanks to the fans for their support of the show. The show followed Lucifer Morningstar (played by Ellis), who deserted hell for Earth and opened a swanky nightclub called Lux in Los Angeles. Lucifer eventually starts solving crimes with LAPD homicide detective Chloe Dancer (played by German), who he harbors complicated feelings for. The show is loosely based on characters created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg for the popular “Lucifer” comic series. Originally published July 1.Update, July 2: Adds fan reactions to Lucifer’s cancellation. 2:28 A message of love for our #Lucifans 🥰😈❤️ from me… @Henderson_Joe all the #Lucifer writers and our beautiful cast… @tomellis17 @LaurenGerman @LesleyAnnBrandt @RachaelEHarris @kevinmalejandro @dbwofficial @Aimee_Garcia and @ScarMestevez pic.twitter.com/8aXb6yfJ7c— Ildy Modrovich (@Ildymojo) June 26, 2019 What’s new to stream in June 2019 Lucifer is causing trouble in LA for possibly the last time.  Fox Lucifer, the devilish TV series that was pulled back from the brink of death by Netflix last June, will end after its fifth season. Ildy Modrovich, the show’s executive producer, confirmed the news on Twitter and urged fans to accept it. “We spoke to our partners at Netflix and Warner Bros. and you should know that tremendous care and consideration was put into making this decision,” Modrovich said last week in the tweet. Modrovich asked fans not to campaign for the show’s rescue, as they did last year after it was dropped by Fox.  0center_img Now playing: Watch this: Netflix TV and Movies Culture Home Entertainment Mobile Apps Mobile Share your voice Post a commentlast_img read more
