Internet upswing has entailed a structural change for journalism in general and the press in particular. The emergence of a new horizontal, low cost and accessible space for communication, has brought profound changes in journalism, both on the production and distribution. In this paper, we present a novel agent-based social platform which aims to improve the organization, management and distribution of the media contents through the application of artificial intelligence techniques.
