Yappn Provides "First Look" of Its New Multichannel Consumer Platform Fotoyapp and Yappn Chat 2.0 at Intertainment Media Annual Meeting

TORONTO, CANADA and NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- (Marketwired) -- 02/27/14 -- Intertainment Media Inc. ("Intertainment Media" or "Company") (TSX VENTURE:INT)(OTCQX:ITMTF)(FRANKFURT:I4T), which has a controlling interest in Yappn (OTCQB:YPPN), the real-time multilingual amplification platform for brand messaging, eCommerce and customer support in almost 70 languages, will provide its stakeholders, at its Annual General and Special Meeting of Shareholders tomorrow, with an introductory view of Yappn's new multichannel consumer platform for web, portable and mobile devices allowing users to instantly connect photos and images to almost any social content and in almost any language. Yappn will also reveal a first look at its new release of Yappn Chat 2.0 which includes many new features to its global, multilingual chat application.

The notion that a "picture is worth a thousand words" generally stems from a 1911 quote by newspaper editor Arthur Brisbane who said the expression, "Use a picture. It's worth a thousand words." Fotoyapp (www.fotoyapp.com) builds on that idea by revolutionizing social engagement, allowing images and content to be linked to each other and shared instantly in almost any language, substantiating the thought that complex ideas can be conveyed through visualization. Fotoyapp creates the ability to share beyond the image.

With Fotoyappn (www.fotoyapp.com) a user simply takes an image, from a camera, tablet, computer, etc. and uploads it to Fotoyapp along with key words that describe the image. Fotoyapp automatically adds the users current social media accounts like Twitter, Facebook and Sina Weibo and crawls the web for related social media posts associated to the key words selected by the users. The result is a stand-alone page where images are socially and visually enabled with all types of related content that automatically defaults to the viewer's language, regardless of what language the social content was posted in. Fotoyapp pairs any image with practically any social content.

Fotoyapp allows users to share socially empowered images through any platform (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, QZone, Google+, Yappn Chat and many other domestic and global social system), email, device or app and rewards the viewer with a completely rich experience not found anywhere else, creating People Powered Pics.

Data as related to key words and tags provides Fotoyapp with the ability to focus on opportunities that will maximize value. Yappn as part of the program has begun testing a number of revenue components that will be customized to each Fotoyapp "connection" both at the user and image level, potentially creating a "revenue map" for each image.

Interested parties who want to be among the first to try this new platform will be able to sign up for Fotoyapp by the end of March at www.fotoyapp.com.

Yappn will also be revealing its updated Yappn Chat platform (chat.yappn.com) which has a number of exciting new features to create globally engaged chat. With Yappn Chat, which can be customized and embedded in almost any platform, brands can engage their customers in a dialogue in almost 70 languages, as the user only sees their own native set language, allowing a free flow of communications without a language barrier.

Intertainment Media's Annual General and Special Meeting of Shareholders will be held on February 28, 2014 at 9:30 am Eastern at the Sheraton Parkway Hotel and Conference Centre in Richmond Hill, ON.
