Yappn's Fotoyapp to Offer Advanced Integration of Online Content, Web Sites and eCommerce Programs

TORONTO, CANADA and NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- (Marketwired) -- 03/11/14 -- Intertainment Media Inc. ("Intertainment Media" or "Company") (TSX VENTURE:INT)(OTCQX:ITMTF)(FRANKFURT:I4T) together with its investment portfolio company Yappn Corp. (OTCQB:YPPN), the real-time multilingual amplification platform for brand messaging, eCommerce and customer support is pleased to announce that Yappn continues to expand its multilingual tool sets by offering the ability to connect images and content through its Fotoyapp (www.fotoyapp.com) initiatives. Yappn will be adding advanced features to its imaging connection program not currently found in many of the leading social and image sharing applications. These features will allow advanced connection of content, and other online and mobile content channels, creating unique links between images and related content.

This feature will provide the user with an opportunity to post an image, from an existing location or camera, tablet or other device and then connect it socially to content like Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and other major social platforms. As an example, a food image could be connected to a restaurant's location and URL, popular restaurant rating sites and other related online content, providing viewers of the image with a total picture of the image. A restaurant in turn could share the image with its other constituents and sites, creating image and content sharing in almost 70 languages as it defaults to the viewer's language in real-time and seamlessly. This system can be duplicated for products and services where images can be used to create value for commercial purposes and connect to Yappn's eCommerce multilingual offerings.

Fotoyapp builds on the idea that "a picture is worth a thousand words" 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 integrating content from web, portable and mobile devices, allowing users to instantly connect photos and images to almost any social content and in almost any language.

The advance features will provide users with the ability to connect with their constituents, not only through social outlets but also web sites and eCommerce platforms instantly through images. This allows seamless integration of awareness and revenue based programming along with curated advertising.

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

Interested parties who want to 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
