The Free Press is looking to grow its online presence, and that’s what led to a deal with the Israel-based Media Lab.
The free and non-profit, founded in 2015, has developed a platform that helps its members collect, analyze and display information on news, politics, technology, education, sports, entertainment and more.
The Media Lab, in partnership with Israeli media company Media Lab Communications, launched its platform to help its members increase their visibility in Israel and abroad.
The goal is to reach more people with the right tools, said Adnan Mammad-Hassan, Media Lab CEO.
The platform, called The Israel Times, aims to help members understand and share Israel’s news and events, and to build their audience.
Mammad Hassan, CEO of The Israel Press Association (IPA), said in a statement that the partnership with the Media Lab gives IPA members access to a free platform that gives them an avenue to share the news and information of the state with a wider audience.”IPA is proud to be a part of the Israel Times platform and look forward to contributing to the continued growth of IPA in the years to come,” said IPA President Daniel Ciminelli.
“The Israel Times is a great platform to share with the world Israel’s current news and current events, which include current events surrounding the Palestinian Authority, Israeli government policies and efforts to build a Palestinian state.
It is a platform to connect IPA members with relevant news sources and content that will further increase IPA’s visibility and reach to the global community.”
In addition to a growing audience, the Israel Press Agency (IPSA) is expanding its reach into more social media platforms to help get more of its stories out to more people.
IPA is currently looking to use the platform to showcase new stories on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Israel’s new military offensive in the Gaza Strip, and the Palestinian leadership’s attempt to create a Palestinian government.
The Israel Press agency is also launching a news portal to share its articles with its members.IPA has also set up a new website called The Media Monitor, which will allow its members to access its database of over 100 news, opinion, culture and education stories that are available for public consumption.
The Israel Media Monitor is expected to launch in the coming months.
