About.com launches Spanish-language topic-site for the gay community
As part of About.com expansion into the U.S. Hispanic market, the company launched Monday a topic-site for the gay community – Comunidad Gay -- that aims to help users solve the large and small needs of everyday life.
Comunidad Gay is part of a recently launched channel, About.com en Español, currently featuring topics such as movies, music, kids, dogs, Internet for beginners, personal computers, literature, makeup and spreadsheets, with nearly 100 more expected by the end 2011.
“About.com’s more than 14 years of experience helping users accomplish their goals has taught us that when a user comes to you from search with a need, the most satisfying, trustworthy way to answer is with information from highly accomplished experts, capable of addressing the user’s need from all angles,” said Cella Irvine, president and CEO, About Group.
Comunidad Gay will be guided by Daniel Shoer-Roth, who works for El Nuevo Herald and has received two national awards from the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD).
