We've all heard this story before, information overload is a big problem, and something new has come out that's supposed to solve it. And time and time again we're fooled, and we end up with solution overload where none of the "solutions" actually work. So then, how can this problem really be solved?
At Thirst, we get it, there's a lot of stuff out there, and it's becoming increasingly difficult to get through. So we've grouped the latest news making headlines around topics, creating a quick and easy way to find out what's going on. And the more you use Thirst, the better your newspaper gets as it learns from and adapts to your interests.
So what's so novel about that (outside from the fact that we think we do a pretty good job of it)? Nothing really, because this problem can't simply be solved by a sophisticated algorithm or an intelligent computer program. We go to one another for news and information, and its our discussion about those topics that has allowed us to advance our thoughts and opinions about some of the most pressing, and sometimes not-so-pressing issues.
Therefore, we believe that in order to truly filter this endless stream of content down to what's meaningful to you, your network will play a vital role in curating that process, by bringing light to subjects that otherwise would be ignored or forgotten.
In the age of social media, sharing and discussing what we discover has never been easier. Yet, there really isn't an appropriate place for us to do that, for us to effectively get our point across, and to the right people.
That's why we've bridged the gap between how we get our news and where we engage with it.
Find people to follow, and debate or relate on topics and issues that really matter to you. You can comment on and like or dislike articles and media, or pretty much anything that's making the news.
Discover, share, and discuss what's going on…all in one place.
