COMPANY DESCRIPTION

Blasting News is the largest global social news publisher – set up in mid-2013, it is now the 142nd most visited websites in the world (Alexa Ranking), thanks to 102+ million monthly unique on-site visitors. Blasting News has readers in five continents and offices in London, New York, Sao Paulo, Milan, Rome, and soon Singapore. Blasting News is a new disruptive concept of journalism, being made by the people, for the people. News is produced by delocalized freelance contributors (Blasters), fact-checked and curated by a quality team of senior professionals. Furthermore, news is distributed by Social Blasters, a global team of top digital influencers. All the processes are fueled by the crowd, without any central newsroom - thanks to an extensive use of technology (the core stages are managed by algorithms, some of which are patent-pending).

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.
