A true alternative to existing social networks, where news stories are created in a transparent, democratic fashion, tied to independently verified evidence and driven by user interest and engagement; where open discussion and debate is encouraged while protecting users from both censorship and abuse; and good reporting is rewarded based on quality and accuracy not popularity or agenda.

Tired of existing social networks where highly editorialized news content and polarizing opinion pieces are delivered by algorithm, undifferentiated from evidence-based journalism, fostering confusion, trolling, and discord?
