The Diskourse app can also alleviate what has become an all too common occurrence on Facebook: a post goes up about a hot-button issue like immigration or gun control and suddenly friends, co-workers and complete strangers are involved in nasty back-and-forth debates. Names are called. Insults are traded. No one wins. No one learns.
Diskourse wants to change that.
- Don't stay trapped in your social media echo chamber; with Diskourse you'll meet people who want to hear the other side of the story.
- You can engage with others, ask questions, and write thoughtful responses. The idea is to find consensus -- or politely agree to disagree.
- Millennials represent one-third of the electorate. For them, personal opinions are more valued than news reports; 86% of Millennials report seeing diverse opinions on their social media feeds, according to the Media Insight Project.
"With all the toxic political rhetoric in this presidential campaign, Y Media Labs has leveled the playing field by creating an innovative platform where Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton supporters can safely connect. The Diskourse app encourages honest, one-on-one debate for all: Millennials, GenXers, Baby Boomers and the Greatest generations. After all, we could all use a little civility," said Robbie Abed, Director of Product Strategy, Y Media Labs.
Diskourse app is available on iOS for FREE on the App Store. Log-in via Facebook or email; only your first name appears, no other personal information is revealed or shared.
Simple. Safe. Civil. It's Diskourse.
