PARIS, March 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Alexandra Voltini, 19 years old, founder of the site: "This is a win-win approach. On the one hand, the site increases its readership and on the other, contributors earn income, anywhere from extra cash to serious revenue. To note, this "Uberization" for journalists and freelancers is not in competition with any profession, rather it's a helpful service to many. So, no dangers of protesters on the horizon...LOL!"

ID of the concept : 

BLAMEET presents itself as a "Journal of public interest, written by citizens for citizens," with the goal of becoming an evolving ecosystem of free thinking and opinion-sharing to improve lives and serve communities of interests.

BLAMEET is a diverse forum for opinions as well as a rich provider of captivating and entertaining content (fun, practical, cultural, educational, editorial, etc).

BLAMEET combines the "convenience" of Facebook, the "brevity" of Twitter and the "connectivity" of LinkedIn to publish opinions, comments, moods, invectives, convictions, complements and criticisms to improve the lives of our citizens.
