We are a team of curious, passionate people that are driven to improve how people engage with content they care about.
We believe that the shift to mobile has fundamentally changed how people consume and interact with content.
We believe true engagement is a two-way communication. People want to feel heard. Communities, publishers, and brands want and need to listen.
We believe in the importance of the open web, and connecting people through their shared interests to create stronger communities.
