Rappler is a social news network where stories inspire community engagement and digitally-fueled actions for social change. Rappler comes from the root words “rap” (to discuss) + “ripple” (to make waves).

It’s a new world of limitless collaboration enabled by new technology and connected by social media.

We at Rappler promise uncompromised journalism that – hopefully – inspires smart conversations and ignites a thirst for change.

We are veteran journalists trained in broadcast, print and web disciplines working with young, idealistic digital natives eager to report and find solutions to problems. We are web artists, designers, publishers and professionals combining the best of broadcasting and IT processes.
