NEW YORK, Oct. 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Jerrick Media Holdings, Inc., (OTCQB: JMDA) (the "Company" or "Jerrick"), a progressive digital technology company, announced today that it has added two new social publishing communities to its Vocal platform. Horror,, explores the stuff of nightmares and all things fright, from ghost stories to slasher films, attacks of the undead and more, and Education,, explores all things student, teacher and school related, minus the tests, tuition, deadlines or detention.

Vocal,, is Jerrick's long-form social publishing platform, engineered for the creation of rich media content and the intuitive discovery and navigation by visitors. Vocal's proprietary, algorithmic engine capitalizes on the power of specific and dedicated audiences and is designed to promote maximum SEO exposure and monetization opportunities.

The Vocal platform currently hosts 26 niche-communities including science fiction, poetry, music, health and wellness, and pop culture. New communities are objectively and quantitatively derived in response to voices (interest levels) within the rapidly growing Vocal sub-communities. Over the last 3 weeks, Vocal's network of content creators has increased approximately 35% to over 57,000 accounts and published in excess of 1,200 submitted articles per week, generating approximately 148,000 page views per day.

"Horror and Education are two more additions to our Vocal platform heavily influenced by the submissions and interest within our network." commented Justin Maury, Head of Product, Creative and Design at Jerrick. "We plan to continue to add more communities, both internally created by our team and externally sourced for existing media brands posted on the Vocal platform by our beta SaaS opportunities."
