In May last year, on World Press Freedom Day 2020, Rappler introduced Lighthouse, a new content delivery platform aimed at enabling readers and communities to act on the stories and advocacies they feel strongly about.
Lighthouse carries smart features that enhance the reader’s journey through Topics, Developing Stories, and the Progressive Web Application. Rappler’s Topics include democracy, COVID-19, global economy, food, among others. Our Developing Stories page guides readers in keeping track of fast-moving events such as the road to Joe Biden’s inauguration and disasters such as Typhoon Ulysses.
As we begin 2021, we will soon be launching a new feature: the community engagement and gated content portal.
We are also introducing a monthly membership subscription option for individuals who want to try out the experience of Rappler + without having to commit to a whole year.
Rappler+ users have access to compelling research, top-notch investigative reports, and exclusive Rappler events. They also get to talk to our reporters and join a community-driven by smart conversations, advocacy, and citizen journalism – all in one place. Read more about Rappler+ here.
