Vox Media Acquires Curbed Network

Vox Media is a name that does not go unrecognized. It has its very own famous Internet site known as The Verge. Then it also has exclusive rights to Polygon, Eater, Racked and SB Nation, which deal in gaming and sports coverage respectively. The new addition to its repertoire is Curbed.com which it is to acquire for somewhere in the region of $25 million. 

Curbed network has its webzines that specialize in land, food and shopping. Vox meanwhile has been raising funds amounting to $34 million for investment purposes. The CEO of Vox, Jim Bankoff has spoken about how expansion was in the pipeline for the company. Smart, interesting stories on all kinds of topics were the specialties of both Vox and Curbed.com. They had a youthful, savvy and affluent consumer target audience. 

The attractiveness of the platform for advertisers is obvious. Vox is also famous for its cool pictures and high quality photos which depict all sorts of visually stimulating stuff. In the United States alone, Vox has a user base of over 41 million individuals. As for Curbed.com, it is a platform for readers on a much smaller scale. 

Only 5.1 million people visit its forums regularly. Nevertheless, it has undergone expansion into foreign territory as well. With the completion of this acquisition, Vox will finally have over 140 personnel in journalism and video making jobs.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
