Rabble.ca relaunches with new interactive features

The Toronto-based indie news media site adds live streaming and content-sharing tools.

Toronto-based Rabble.ca has been redesigned and augmented with interactive and video features, and now also includes audio and streaming video ad opps.

With 9 million page views and 130,000 unique visitors a month, the site features original news stories, interviews and commentary, providing an alternative view of politics, entertainment and community across its e-newsletters, podcast network and rabbletv.

Built on an open-source platform, the new site offers interactive features, such as the live streaming capacity of rabbletv, as well as sharing tools. Browsers also have the option to provide feedback on the new site, upping the rabble quotient.

Derrick O’Keefe, editor of rabble.ca, says that he intends to build on rabble’s successful election blog and make it the ‘go to’ place for common sense analysis without the corporate media spin.

The site has formed partnerships with the Council of Canadians, the Douglas Coldwell Foundation and the United Steelworkers. >
