Rappler is an online news outlet and opinion blog website. It describes itself as a "social news network".[2] It is based in the Philippines with a bureau in Jakarta, Indonesia.[2] In addition to their main website, Rappler also uses social media for news distribution.[3]

Rappler's name is a portmanteau of the words rap (to discuss) and ripple (to make waves). This implies that the site allows visitors to discuss (rap) their opinions and reactions with other visitors (ripple) about the news stories that the site provides.[2]

History[edit]

With the idea of professional journalists using social media and crowdsourcing for news distribution,[4] Rappler was started in 2011 by Maria Ressa, a Filipina[5] journalist.[6]

Rappler website first became publicly accessible on January 1, 2012.[7]

Rigoberto Tiglao of The Manila Times, who has been critical of Rappler regarding its ownership, prompting the government for the website's foreign ownership and possible constitutional violations [8][9]

On January 11, 2018, the Securities and Exchange Commission of the Philippines (SEC) revoked Rappler's certificate of incorporation over Rappler's use of Philippine Depository Receipts (PDRs). It said that the provisions of the PDR issued to Omidyar Network by Rappler gave the American investment firm control over the local media firms' other PDR holders as well as its corporate policies which the SEC says is a violation of the Constitution's provisions on foreign ownership and control.[10] Rappler claimed that it is 100% Filipino owned and that Omidyar only invests in the media firm.[11] Despite the certificate revocation, SEC stated that Rappler can still operate since their decision isn't final, pointing out that the media firm can still challenge the decision before the Court of Appeals within 15 days.[12] Malacañang Palace also suggested that Rappler authors can still continue to publish on their website as bloggers.[13]

Rappler said that the revocation of its certificate was an attack against Freedom of Press, and the Philippine government issued a statement denying such a claim, pointing out that President Duterte could have used the armed forces to implement Rappler's closure, as done by various foreign governments, but never did resort to such moves.[14]

Also at around the same time, journalist and commentator Jojo A. Robles of Manila Standard newspaper raised concerns about Rappler's crowdfunding program.[15]

Features[edit]

Mood Meter[edit]

"Mood Meter" is a web widget embedded on each of Rappler's blogs and articles.[16] It appears as colored bubbles showing the way people react to Rappler's stories.[3] Readers are prompted to choose their response from eight different emotional reactions. Ten stories that received the most reactions in the last 48-hour period would appear on the Mood Navigator.[17]

The Rappler Mood Meter, which is similar to Facebook Reactions[18], won the Bronze Medal for Brand Experience at the 2012 Boomerang Awards sponsored by the Internet Media Marketing Association of the Philippines (IMMAP).[19]

Ownership and investors[edit]

As of 2017, Rappler was owned by Rappler Holdings Corporation, which is in turn owned primarily by Dolphin Fire Group (31.21%), Maria Ressa (23.77%), Hatchd Group (17.86%), and Benjamin So (17.86%).[20]

Ownership of Rappler Holdings

Rappler draws in funds through the issuance of Philippine Depository Receipts (PDR), which allowed foreign firms Omidyar Network and North Base Media to invest on Rappler.[20]
