The Huffington Post is considering launching a Dutch version of the news website after 2014. CEO Jimmy Maymann made more clear the outlooks for the online advertising market look good.
The Huffington Post has an existence for eight years in the United States and is hinting at international extension. In October, it lifted off a German version in association with the weekly Focus and a local website was already launched in France, the United Kingdom, Spain and Italy. It is possible that a Dutch version in Flanders and The Netherlands will be the next international move.
The launching of the Dutch version of the news website will depend on the potential of the online advertising. Possibly the Dutch language area will be too small to begin a local website.
The content of the news website is especially provided by unpaid columnists and bloggers world-wide.
