Factoid, the so called collective knowledge network is a new platform that aims to be a sort of combination between twitter & Wikipedia. The website seems to retain all the fun and social elements while also maintaining an academic style and structure.
Factoid employs an innovative fact-checking system that scores facts based on their relationships with other facts, whether they are supported or debunked when all facts and their respective scores are tallied up against each other. Facts are organized in a web or supporting and negating relationships, and also get their own independent truth value scores. This seems fun and promising enough as far as becoming a useful research tool in a truly academic sense.
So far the platform seems to be living up to its goal although it needs more content which is a great opportunity for internet marketers and content creators out there. It seems that this website’s success will depend on the level of quality the users and posters will bring to it.
Article marketers have a fresh chance to build quality relevant traffic through factoid without having to write long winded articles just to meet a certain word minimum. On factoid, all one needs to do is post short or long bits of knowledge and connect them to other related and relevant facts. By creating an intricate web of mix and matched facts all linking back to promoted web-pages, webmasters can simply build a reliable source of traffic.
This approach saves article marketers a ton of time when it comes to marketing and even experienced internet marketers can break up old articles into facts that can be submitted to factoid for additional traffic. This is what’s been occasionally referred to as article marketing on steroids and rightly so, because it becomes so much simpler to put your thoughts down as tidbits of information.
Factoid can also be a plain and simply fun way to spend time learning new information on key topics or browsing comical sections where jokes get treated as facts and even browse movie and book reviews as well as get great how to information with no fluff. News and current events are a work in progress, but soon enough with the way things are going, factoid may become one of the most engaging ways of getting news information.
Truth is there is so much that can be done with this platform that no matter what niche you specialize in, you’ll be able to carve out a traffic pulling corner on factoid.
