Veritocracy can be used to find out about the news from lots of different perspectives. The site scours the internet and incorporates information from lots of different sources, including the mainstream media, bloggers, and users on the site. This makes it possible to provide a clear all round view of hat different people think about the various different stories. The site can also be personalized depending on what users read and vote on the most often. This makes it much easier to help publishers find targeted readers.
Veritocracy was founded in New York in January 2007. They currently have three employees, and have so far raised $120k in funding from unknown parties.
Everyone as their own opinion, the problem is that this opinion is often allowed to interfere with news and other important comments. If you read the same news story from a number of different sources then you will probably quickly find that they are very different. This can make it difficult to know what’s right and what’s wrong. Veritocracy makes this easier by allowing you to compare the same news in the same place.
The site is laid out in a very clever way with all of the useful information grouped together. When you register for an account you can even personalize the page so that you find out about information that’s more relevant for you. The search feature is also very clever; it automatically completes what you type by searching through recent entries.
If you want to personalize the site then you will need to register for your own account, this is very easy, you just need to enter your email address and then choose a username and password. You can then choose the categories that you want to include on your homepage. As soon as you have completed registration you will then be presented with your own account. You will need to confirm your email address by clicking on a link that is emailed to you.
It’s completely free to use Veritocracy, and there aren’t any noticeable adverts on the site either. This makes using Veritocracy much easier than many other websites that are packed full of adverts.
Veritocracy is perfect for many people that want to stay up to date with reliable news without having to spend all day comparing all of the different sources. Veritocracy makes it possible to compare the news on a single site without having to leave and compare elsewhere.
