Listicle.org has been launched to provide a new way of creating collaborative lists online. The site is dubbed as the beginning of the end of the Top 10 articles, as it enables users from around the world to collaborate and share unique ideas on any given topic.
Although there are countless 'Top 10' articles on the internet, there isn’t a definite ‘Top Ten’ or ‘Top 20 Ways’ of doing anything. This is why there are so many ‘Top Ten’ articles having the same ‘Title’ but different contents across several websites because each one rely on Editors and Staff writers. Users are therefore depending solely on the editors and staff writers, rather than peers to find the most interesting information. The new website is poised to fill this incompleteness.
Anyone can start a topic and anyone can contribute to the list. And with every new idea added to the list, it is reflected in the title of such topic. i.e A user starts a topic, “Ways to Screw Up Your Life." If 100 users contribute an idea each to this topic, the title changes to “100 Ways to Screw Up Your Life.” And every time a new idea is added, it is reflected in the title.
As a collaborative platform, the site draws the line on personal opinionated topics. "Topics will not be allowed to have 'I' or 'My', because its not a site where you list 'My Favorite Michael Jackson's Songs' or 'Places I've visited That I can Never Forget'. We want factual list that will be beneficial to everyone and that anyone can contribute to," says Lanre Oladipo, founder of Listicle.org
While users can contribute to a list, only a selected few can edit contents posted on the site. "Not everyone can edit but anyone can add ideas and we will be adding more features in the coming months to help maximize users’ experience. Our goal is to enable people connect different ideas into one universal list as a source of information,” says Lanre Oladipo.
