A news curation app for anyone who enjoys sharing articles on the issues, events and topics that interest them.
We built Topico as a news curation app to create an experience that not only connects all of our shared articles to a powerful discovery platform, but do so in a way that’s not divisive, or invites conflict.
Our goal is simple. Let’s share the news again.
We appreciate your support in our endeavor,
The team at Topico.

Create your own Newsrooms
Like news aggregators, Newsrooms are simply topic-centric newsfeeds – except they’re yours to curate, cultivate and share with the Topico community.
You can create multiple Newsrooms to curate articles around any issue, event, or topic of interest.
People can recommend your articles, subscribe to your curations, and set push notifications.
It’s easy to create a title, select a banner, and choose a personal color to make it uniquely yours.
Not recommending an article is essential to providing accountability to not only the articles, but the people who post them as well.
Recommending articles provides validation and lets the curator know you want “more of this”, while also recommending it to the community.
No photos, memes, or comments.
(yup. no comments.)
Why no comments?
It’s our belief that a curated news app that removes our personal opinions from sharing articles can still be social because the articles themselves speak for us because they inherently reflect our viewpoints and perspectives.
What happens when I post an article?
When you post an article you’re already saying, “I find this interesting… you might too”.
And when a member recommends your article, they’re replying, “I did, and thanks for sharing”.
The rest is just… noise.
Will you really miss them?
We want posting on Topico to be a simple, friction-free experience, and we think that many of you want that too.
Topico isn’t a place to share our opinion on the news. It’s a place to curate it for others to discover, browse, and stay informed.
Let’s start sharing the news again by simply getting back to the basics, and in doing so create a less divisive and more civil society.
Where Do You Stand?
Your Influence Ring™ shows your standing as a news curator within the community.
The more recommendations around the articles you share… the more influence points you’ll gain, and the higher you’ll rise on the leaderboard.
It’s that easy.
Who’s the MIP of #TECHNOLOGY?
A running leaderboard displays the influence ranking within a Newsroom, topic, or news source, with more points gained as the community recommends a member’s posted articles.
Most Influential Person (MIP)
The MIP (or Most Influential Person) is determined by the community based on many factors beyond just recommended articles.
You might just be the MIP of #technology, #batman or your favorite television show?
The entire user-experience of Topico is built around topics of interest, and their relevant relationships to on another. This provides a way for people to focus on what’s relevant to them… not what is relevant to other people. We feel that this is a key feature when you begin to browse Topico to discover and view news articles.
On Topico, it’s not about pushing content at you… it’s all about giving you multiple paths to explore the content that interests you.
A curated news app.
When you post an article into Topico, you’re contributing to building out historical timelines around an issue, event, or topic of interest.
Yes, when it comes to the news, current events are why most people consume news articles, but we feel that to really understand an issue, or event it’s essential that we provide a way to jump back through time to learn more about how an issue, or event unfolded. This is why we created topic timelines, and every article that every member posts onto the platform is an important part of the effort to help build out an informative platform to not only stay up on current events, but preserve the past as well.
