Jerrick Unveils "The Swamp" (A Community Exploring Politics) and "Proof" (Dedicated to Spirits Wine and Beer) on its Growing Vocal Platform

Published on January 19, 2017

NEW YORK, January 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

Jerrick Media Holdings, Inc., (OTCQB: JMDA) (the "Company" or "Jerrick"), a digital media and technology company, announced today the launch of two new verticals, The Swamp and Proof, to be added to its proprietary long-form social platform Vocal.

Vocal is a content distribution platform and publishing hub engineered for creation and discovery spanning verticals in health, sexuality, science fiction, the workplace, pop culture, and more. Aimed at connecting thoughtful and original articles with communities passionate about these topics, Vocal leverages the power of specific and dedicated audiences with a nascent content creation engine, and effective monetization.

The Swamp is a community exploring the murky waters of politics, while Proof encompasses every aspect of wine, spirits, beer and the like. Both will have Jerrick's signature combination of quality articles, videos and photographs; Vocal users are now able to contribute to both of these new communities. These two new additions to the Vocal network come one month after the launch of Beat and Feast, music and food sites.

Jeremy Frommer, CEO, said, "Part of the excitement around our Vocal platform is how quickly we're able to respond to audiences' interests and desires. Our rapidly growing community of content creators has already submitted pieces on politics and alcohol, with many more subjects to come. Following the release of the Vocal technology on November 30th, 2016, the network has experienced over one million sessions, setting a record for the new Vocal network."

Ten verticals now run on Vocal, each of which are built upon a storied history in the media landscape:

  • The Swamp - The Swamp examines the crazy but true world of Politics. Discover the voice of the people.
  • Proof - From happy hour to the top shelf, Proof has a drink for everyone. Choose your poison.
  • OMNI - OMNI is the intersection of science, science fiction, technology, art, culture, design, and metaphysics.
  • Geeks -Geeks dives into the storied worlds of comic cons, video games, movies, comic books and TV.
  • Beat - From obscure instruments to memorable soundtracks to ever-shifting tastes, Beat is the guiding track to all things music.
  • Feast - Whether it's your favorite part of the day or fuel for your car, our relationship with food is a daily, complicated affair. Let the Feast begin.
  • Longevity - Longevity presents the new frontiers of health and wellness; everything a person needs to live a strong and healthy life.
  • Journal -We spend one third of our lives thinking about it, stressing about it, talking about it, and doing it. Journal is everything work-related.
  • Filthy - In the world of sexuality, Filthy has something for everyone. A vintage erotica vibe with a contemporary artistic perspective.
  • Potent - Potent explores the fastest growing industry in America: cannabis culture and marijuana lifestyle.
