28/06/11 0 COMMENTS

American Latino Media is proud to announce the completion of the first developmental stage of americanlatino.com, a social and professional utility platform designed to meet the needs of the growing Hispanic American population sector and increase awareness of the positive social, political, economic and cultural Hispanic contributions to American society.

“We aim to provide insight to the general public about the Hispanic experience in The United States and allow all users to express their opinions and to offer an understanding of the social, political and economic developments that affect them as Americans of Hispanic and Latino origin” says Hugo Lembert, CEO and Founder.  “We are searching for that one single and powerful voice. We need the community to give us that voice in our quest to educate ourselves and fellow Americans about what it is to be Latino and Hispanic in this wonderful nation we all call home” adds Lembert.  

The beta version of Americanlatino.com contains resourceful components ready for use by the general public. Editorial topics range from Politics to Arts and Entertainment, Culture and Identity to Business and Technology.  Social Media components include a community forum and calendar of events. Advertising components include a classified marketplace, a business directory and a jobs board.  Users can post events, free basic classified and business listings and more.*   

It is evident that the bicultural nature of the US Hispanic/ Latino can not be unraveled through our native language and cultural ancestry alone. Nearly half of US Latinos under 25 either prefer speaking English or are bilingual. This number is expected to increase as the assimilation process takes its course. Although US Hispanics/ Latinos are well aware of their cultural background, their mind-set, overall philosophy and expectations mirror our US contemporaries. The new Latino generation is very much engaged in media but we remain dissatisfied by the lack of representation. 

Americanlatino.com is committed to filling this void by remaining focused on issues that are relevant to the wants and needs of the emerging bicultural American and of those interested in obtaining insight about the Hispanic/ Latino American experience.  “We are focused on capturing community knowledge and making it available to the general public in an effort to encourage meaningful discussion and trans-cultural communication” says Steven Roth, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development.

It is evidently clear that American Latino Media’s vision is focused on learning about the life experience, aspirations, concerns, role and responsibility of American Latinos in shaping the Hispanic and Latino community. For more information about content contribution, please contact Steven Roth at (347) 612-8991 or Sroth@americanlatino.com.  Americanlatino.com is also offering free basic listing and classified advertising for a limited time only.  All you need to do is register!
