Fresh woods and new pastures

Welcome to all our readers. As from today we would like to welcome you to this revamped news portal, not simply as honoured guests but as so much more. We would like you to accompany us on this journey, using technologies which are a first in Malta.

We had planned this for the 11th June. That came and went with a multitude of technical glitches, which were not of our doing. Finally, however, we have made it. Better late and all the better for it, since we are now on solid ground.

Thanks to your trust in us, Newsbook.com.mt has grown into the third most popular news portal in Malta. Since we have embarked on this revitalisation of the media of the Malta Archdiocese, readers are flocking to its banners hand over fist. Suffice it to say that the number of pages you have read these last five months have been 85% greater than in the same period in 2016, the year prior to the revamp.

We humbly answer to your show of trust by increasing our services and adding the English version to the Maltese portal. On accessing Newsbook.com.mt, you will find the Maltese version. It is then up to you to choose whether you wish to follow Maltese or English versions by choosing the desired flag. The next time you go to the website, it will take you to the version you would have chosen in the previous session.

We would also like you to register on the website and choose your preferences. In a few short seconds, you will be able to personalise Newsbook.com.mt into the website of your choice seeing in it the sections which interest you specifically. So, your friend next to you, also on the Newsbook homepage will probably be seeing a completely different version.

We are also putting at your disposal Artificial Intelligence through the introduction of a Facebook Messenger Chatbot. ‘Ask and you will receive’ will take on a whole new meaning as you chat to our bottie.

Most importantly, we will continue to bring you fair, accurate and trustworthy news, painstakingly researched and honestly written.

We are not promising perfection. We will make mistakes. We can improve. That is why your comments are valuable to us.

P.S Update your Newsbook mobile app now to see the latest version. Click here for Android and here for IOs.

Thank you for your trust
