reallyread.it is an online community that limits the ability to comment on articles to people who actually read them, making conversations more informative, insightful and interesting.
The single biggest problem with internet media and journalism is that most people don’t read.
The average amount of time spent on an article is 2.5 seconds.
This is the source of countless internet frustrations: clickbait, trolls, echo-chambers, and fake news. It’s why a vast majority of people who get their news from social media (which is almost everyone) say they don’t enjoy the experience. And they don’t trust it.
Two years ago we set out on a quest to fix the comment section, everyone’s least favorite part of the web. We accomplished that. And so now we’re taking it a step further — we’re building a social media network powered by reading.
And we’re live. Come join us.
We support media entrepreneurs building a more informed, connected, and empowered society through our start-up accelerator in San Francisco and New York City.
