There are plenty of places to “share the news”, but none were built specifically for that task, which meant that it had to share the same space with other forms of content; Memes. Photos. Comments, and all manner of user-generated content.
Topico has built a platform from the ground up with the purpose of creating an enjoyable place to start sharing the news again.
This meant a restructuring of what we’re all generally familiar with as far as social networking, keeping the elements that provide validation, while removing what was causing a lot of the noise and friction in the first place; the personal comments, opinions and user-generated content.
And maybe by creating an enjoyable place to share news and information we can repair our relationship with journalism, and by doing so support media literacy.
These are our first steps and we greatly appreciate your support as together we build a platform to stay better informed, and hopefully create a more civil society where sharing news and information is once again an enjoyable experience.
News without noise.
