Prior to the founding of the company the original broadcasting department of Frankly, WorldNow, was founded in 1999. It was not until 2012 that Frankly was founded by Steve Chung, and has since served over 200 broadcasting stations throughout the United States. The company provided chat features for the website of NBA team the Sacramento Kings in 2015; which provided group chat rooms for games, popular topics, and interesting news.

Also in 2015 Frankly announced renewed contracts with 12 television stations. These TV stations used the company’s publishing and advertising platform to improve their websites. By this time Frankly had already signed agreements with 55 websites and was generating over $2 million a year in revenue.

In 2016 Shareablee Inc. announced their partnership with Frankly, which offered the company’s clients access into their social media performance along with their competitors. This valuable information gave enterprises insight into why they were performing well, or not, in comparison to similar companies.

Along with this added capability, Frankly was able to integrate the Shareablee dashboard into their platform allowing for even more insight into brand performance and audience impact. Frankly creates native applications designed specifically for the devices used to view them, as well as insight and advertising capabilities to offer a wholesome digital solution to their customers.
