"The partnership between 5min and GGL further reinforces the benefits of the syndication economy," said 5min CEO Ran Harnevo. "As the GGL network becomes populated with 5min's expansive video library, the highly engaged and finely targeted audience of GGL will undoubtedly attract a new wave of content producers and brands to the various communities. The connection between destination, producer and advertiser is a dynamic relationship that 5min is determined to cultivate through various niche verticals, including gaming."
