Social Media Site Curates Protests In Real Time
Crowdvoice pulls all the most up-to-date information on social movements from different sources around the web.
Crowdvoice, a site developed by Mideast Youth, is a platform that lets people curate social media content from across the web, creating a single place to go for updates on breaking protest news. The site arranges content on a scrolling page similar in feel to Pinterest, with content pulled in from other sites. Which content gets pulled in is dependent on the users of the site. Mideast Youth’s Esra’a Al Shafei, explains:
We saw an influx of information – people were posting on their blogs, putting videos on YouTube, and we discovered that nobody was able to discover this information, [Crowdvoice is] a tool to help people discover this information from people who are trying to be heard in as many ways as possible.
