**Why are we better?**
1- Regular blogs are static, you can't really interact with your audience, and even if you are an avid writer who writes a blog a day, there is no need for your users to spend more than 10 minutes on your blog, finish reading it, and maybe come back the next day.
Upvotenation supplements your blogs automatically with news, videos, and images ( In reality you don't even need to write blogs if you don't want to and we will provide the blogs for you, but more on that later).
It allows you to send direct notification to your followers and subscribers about upcoming events, blogs, products and services you are promoting and more. Upvotenation also provides your community with a message board and a way for your audience to share your channel and connect with you in all your other social networks. Want to write a blog and share on Facebook and twitter? Do it from just one place. Once you create your channel you have a interactive community that's is constantly active even when you are on vacation at the beach!
2 - Many sites claim to be a community when in reality they are just a very large number of individuals. While those individuals may be interacting, they are not really helping one another. We change that paradigm on our model.
Every member is incentivized to provide relevant and interesting media to Upvotenation. If that media meets your channel criteria related to news category, keywords, media source, content, blog writer rating, popularity and so on, it gets immediately pushed to your channels for your users to see. The more and better content on your channel the more followers and subscribers you get, which also plays into your incentives and builds your audience for you.
3- Interested in multiple topics? You can create multiple channels all managed from your settings and visible to your users on their display. What this means is that you can segregate your audience into specific topics but easily manage everything from one place.
Since you can create a channel in less than 2 minutes it gives you much more flexibility than a traditional blogging or news media platform. Also, since you get your own unique url with every channel you create, your users can bookmark, share and subscribe to your channel and always come back to you without having to go thru the broader upvotenation community first (i.e. https://www.upvotenation.com/channels/<your channel name>).
4- Gamification. We keep an active leaderboard with the top user rated by their contribution to the community and you can see your points go up as you contribute content or the community interacts with your content. We also issue badges for accomplishments such as the "founder's badge" for the top 1,000 users that sign up, and we will continue to find new and interesting ways to make Upvotenation engaging and entertaining for the users.
5- Smart algorithms. The way you select what news source are available on your channel is not by selecting from a large list of potential source (CNN, CNBC, FOX, etc.) But instead, every time you read and rate a particular media on upvotenation we record your ratings and we aggregate it in a way that only highly rated sources are included. That way if a particular news source that you originally liked start to provide sub-par content it will be removed from your channel automatically without the need for you to do anything. So you and your subscribers will always only get the news and news sources that gives you the best information.
The ratings app is at the heart of Upvotenation.
5- Profit sharing. The points users earn on upvotenation means something. And as the site developers and it's monetized the revenue is split with the community so we can all benefit together.

6- You help fight fake news! Since users points are based on community votes and media rankings, posting news from non reliable sources are discouraged based on this built in incentive. More importantly, when you design your channel, the only media shared on your channel are the media that meets your personal criteria, and only from sources you personally rated above your defined threshold. You can change your parameters whenever you want and our algorithms will do the rest for you.
7 - Regular users going to Upvotenation will benefit even more than you will. Upvotenation has a dual search structure where the homepage lists the top rated media of the day independently of category. This is so the homepage can be a place where users can find out about trending topics and new and interesting things. we call it the discovery layer. However, they can quickly drive down into different categories (i.e Politics), news outlets ("Search TechCrunch on Upvotenation"), and keywords, or as we mentioned above search by channels and going straight to the topics they are interested in.
We are waiting to reach the 1,000 users to release a broader marketing campaign and the second beta version of Upvotenation with additional features that will definitely change the way you look at news and allow you to influence how media is created. Now that's something worth waiting for!
But we need to start with channel and content creators. So, sign up, help us spread the word, share it with your friends, and let's take back control over the media!
