The Hollywood Reporter Launches Entertainment News' First Social Reader

Apr 24, 2012


Following in the footsteps of newspapers like The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post, The Hollywood Reporter has announced the launch of The Hollywood Reporter Social Reader, a free Facebook app that allows readers to read and share entertainment news, reviews, blog posts and videos from the entertainment news outlet.

The Hollywood Reporter Social Reader is the first social reader for entertainment news, and provides access to nearly all of the content on without having to leave Facebook. The app also allows readers to like, comment on and share articles, blog posts, and videos they find interesting.

The release of The Hollywood Reporter Social Reader marks another digital milestone for THR, which has seen 85% growth in traffic to the site over the past year and launched iPhone and iPad apps.
