Guest Post: Today I’m extremely pleased to announce one of our largest customers – and certainly our most active and avid user – the formidable Associated Press, has taken an equity stake in SAM.

Our mission since we started SAM has been to build the most robust social newsgathering and storytelling platform available. It would be an understatement to say that social media and UGC has made a massive impact on the news and media industry. There is a magical codependency between the news media and social media and SAM sits right in the middle of those worlds, powering search, curation and the workflows journalists need to be effective storytellers in the modern day.
