A Social News Reader
1.0.8 for Android

The description of Relevant

Relevant is a social news reader that values quality over clicks.

Instead of relying on quantity (# of likes, followers), Relevant implements a quality metric designed to extract valuable content from the noise of the attention economy. Beneficial contributions to the platform are rewarded with Relevant Tokens.

The app serves as a lab for formulating and experimenting with the Relevance Metric and Token with the goal of building a self-sustaining economic ecosystem that provides financial incentives to share and curate quality content.

How it works:

• Democracy needs expertise

On Relevant, every article and user is ranked according to their Relevance score. Users can upvote or downvote an article — but not every vote is equal.

For example: Kim Kardashian might have a high Relevance ranking for fashion, but a low ranking when it comes to science. If she upvotes an article about fashion week — that content will shoot up in Relevance, but if she upvotes an article on climate change — that content’s Relevance value will change very little.

Relevant is not a popularity contest. Your Relevance is not tied to the number of followers you have, but by your authority on a given subject.

• A ”Like” is not enough

Binary feedback is not sufficient to distinguish between the nuanced array of responses we have to what we see online. At Relevant, we are developing feedback options beyond upvotes and downvotes in order to separate valuable information from noise.

• Personalization is perverse

The user is not the center of the Relevant universe — information is. What you see is not filtered by who you know or how you feel, but by what is most salient on the platform as a whole. Everyone sees the same feed and users are exposed to a variety of viewpoints and opinions. The feed is a result of communal curation, not your personal preferences.
