Intertainment's Portfolio Investment Yappn Begins Acceleration and Rollout of Key Programs

TORONTO, CANADA and NEW YORK, NEW YORK--(Marketwired - March 6, 2014) - 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 has begun to pilot launch its multilingual eCommerce program allowing brands to seamlessly sell its products and services natively in key languages, capturing new audiences and revenues. This program, which was announced earlier this year, provides brands with Yappn's key technologies, marketing, sales and support programs on a partnership basis, where Yappn receives up to 15% of the accretive revenues generated from new sales. Currently, Yappn is piloting 2 brands with a number of key brands to follow.

Yappn's new multichannel consumer platform for web, portable and mobile devices, Fotoyapp (www.fotoyapp.com), which allows users to instantly connect photos and images to almost any social content in almost any language has begun its development program for key industry influencers and celebrities. Yappn is meeting with agencies, studios and management firms to introduce Fotoyapp as part of their global social outreach programs.

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. 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 using the selected key words. 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 and connects relevant curated ad and commerce opportunities to those images, creating new forms of revenue.

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.
