Prince Philip of Britain launched the online editions of Malayala Manorama and The Week in Kochi on October 17, 1997. Since that time, Manorama Online has been at the forefront of the digital migration of Malayalis as a pioneer of Kerala-based news sites.

Manorama stands apart in the digital world with its vision that encompasses children, students, women, seniors, and all sections of society. It has run several campaigns on socially relevant issues and conducted competitions to honour excellence. 

Sensing the pulse of a news-hungry generation, Manorama has stayed abreast of the developments on desktop, mobile, tablet, iPad, and even Apple Watch. It swiftly responded to the changing times as news consumption shifted from desktops to mobile screens. Manorama Online also launched the first news app in Malayalam.

In addition, Manorama organised a slew of events in areas as varied as cinema, music, and business, including Techspectations, the first digital summit to be organised by a media group in Kerala. It also instituted many awards including “Hackathon,” to recognise excellence in coding; “Haritha Nagaram,” to honour the best municipality in Kerala; and “Zero Waste=100 Marks” to encourage students to keep their schools and surrounding clean.

Another feature is online discussion forums, such as Online OP. Also under the banner of Manorama Online are www.globalmalayali.in for non-resident Keralites and www.chuttuvattom.com for neighbourhood news. In addition, the publication has a rich array of offerings in the digital classifieds space.
