We want to pitch our website to Jezebel, a gossip and lifestyle site that is part of the portfolio of Gawker Media, specifically branded to target women in their 20’s and 30’S, with a strong feminist bent.
I liked the sound of it so I did some more research about our future platform…
Revenge Porn is a hot topic on Jezebel, with 12 stories on the theme released this year, the past two prompted over 200 comments from readers. These stories however have not managed to escape the daily news cycle focusing on snap events in the revenge porn narrative such as the passing of laws and statements made by so called ‘sexstortionists.’
Even better Jezebel users are already active participants in the site’s content. Between Jezebel’s Twitter and Facebook pages they have over 500,000 followers and thanks to some pre-Web 2.0 appreciation there are some forum fiends among Jezebel readers too.
