The Washington Post Messenger Service for the German Election 2017

The Washington Post is informing its readers via WhatsApp and other messaging services concerning the current events of the German Election 2017. In this way, readers can connect with Post reporter Rick Noack for the latest information on their mobile device. But that isn’t all, we took a closer look at the Washington Post Whatsapp Service.

The aim of this project is to establish a moderated online community and to engage with the audience on platforms they use every day. Noack will give users a behind the scenes look at how Washington Post stories come together and also occasionally solicit story contributions from his subscribers.

The Washington Post, founded in 1877, is the largest daily newspaper in Washington, DC, the capital and government seat of the United States. It is the oldest newspaper still in distribution in Washington and was part of the Washington Post Company until 2013. In August 2013, the newspaper was sold to the Amazon founder Jeff Bezos. Since then, the Post has greatly expanded its team of software developers and optimized their offer for mobile usage.

The Messenger Service of the Washington Post is implemented using the technology of MessengerPeople to publish its content via WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and Telegram.


Users can send and receive information in both German and English.
