New York, NY (PRWEB) December 22, 2014
Mashable, the leading media company for the Connected Generation and the voice of digital culture, announced today that it has hired JP Mangalindan as a new member of the technology reporting and writing team.
In this role, Mangalindan will cover the giants of the social media world, Facebook, Twitter, Tinder, Pinterest, Snapchat, Secret, WhatsApp, WeChat and those that are yet to be conceived. He’ll focus his efforts on the forces and companies that are architecting the way we communicate and exchange information -- how they operate, how they stumble and how they develop new products.
“Looking at the past year, with so much attention focused on privacy, hacking and the evolving culture of social communication, this is a huge topic area for Mashable and its audience,” said Jim Roberts, Chief Content Officer and Executive Editor. “JP has been reporting on the the tech and social media scene for the past several years, establishing connections with the most influential voices in the industry. We are excited to have him join Mashable’s growing team of technology writers.”
Prior to joining Mashable, Mangalindan was a staff writer for Fortune, where for over five years he covered consumer-facing tech companies from Amazon and eBay to early-stage startups both online and for the magazine. Before that, he served as editorial assistant at GQ magazine from 2007 to 2009 and freelance fact-checker at Fast Company from 2006 to 2007.
Mangalindan is a graduate of Fordham University, where he studied journalism. He joins Mashable in the San Francisco office in mid-January and can be found on Twitter at @jpmanga.
