Blasting News

Launched in mid-2013, Blasting News is now the largest global social news platform – the 297th most visited website in the world (Alexa Ranking), as big as Twitter in Italy, and as big as Instagram and WhatsApp in Brazil, thanks to 40+ million monthly unique visitors and 1 million blasters from 34 countries, who publish 15.000+ original news each month. Blasting News has been selected and funded by Google Innovation Fund (DNI) to revolutionize digital information in Europe.

Blasting News has an ambitious goal: to make our world a better place, giving everyone the possibility of sharing ideas with a global audience and enjoying truly independent information.

At the core, Blasting News is a news publisher totally fueled and curated by the crowd: news is produced by delocalized contributors (Blasters) and fact-checked and curated by a quality team of professionals (Senior Blasters);

Both Blasters and Senior Blasters are paid based on performance; in addition to this, the best news may be distributed around by the Social Blasters, a global team of digital influencers selected through application and interviews. All the core processes are managed by technology: e.g., homepages are handled by a patent-pending algorithm without human intervention.

Blasting News has a very innovative proposition:

·         100% Independent

Blasting News encourages a wide range of points of view. All blasters can freely choose the topic and the medium of their contents. Blasting News has adopted George Whitefield’s principle “We’ll just have to agree to disagree.”

·         100% Democratic

Blasting News does not have any central editorial office: we have developed a technology that promotes the most

Interesting, highest quality news, taking into account a huge number of factors.

·         100% Meritocratic

Blasters earn money thanks to a simple quality-based system: the more people that read the content, the more money the Blaster receives. Money comes from advertisement sold on the webpages.
