ConvoNation, a ground-breaking online space designed to bring education to the forefront of social interaction, has just hit the web. Through a mix of an innovative, three-column Conversation design, a never before seen media Library, and a customizable homepage, ConvoNation incentivizes research and promotes responsible engagement between oppositional thinkers. ConvoNation is not another "drop in the sea" of social media chatter; the site is igniting conversations by connecting thoughts from all over the world.
“It’s amazing, I never knew, or even understood the power of written word, but what you have created is beyond powerful.” ConvoNation User Matt Johnston
Followers and friends are easy to come by in today's social networking climate, and while that may improve one’s Klout score, meaningful content is more likely to arise from users that challenge each other – and meaningful content is the basis of any successful online venture. That's why ConvoNation co-founders Adam Schreiber, Michael Murray and Simon Esler believe that it isn’t networked connections that matter so much as the ideas generated from said connections. As a free online destination that facilitates real dialogue between users by encouraging digital democracy, ConvoNation offers more than 140 character public messages and chronological status updates.
“We encourage our users to do their research on the topics they love. There is someone out there that is ready to challenge your ideology and hopefully make you a smarter, more well rounded person. And when this type of interaction is accomplished, social media becomes a much more rewarding experience for everyone involved.” ConvoNation Co-Founder, Adam B. Schreiber
ConvoNation pinpoints key influencers through Agrees, which are awarded when a user has made a statement supported by someone else on the site. Agrees showcase a user’s knowledge and influence, helping to put him or her on the map. Statements and rebuttals can be supported through the use of ConvoNation’s unique media aggregation tool – The Library. The Library is comprised of a growing body of external links being shared on the site. Links are organized according to the thoughts and conversations from which they emerged, and can easily be searched and referenced, adding a whole new dimension to the sharing of content.
“I have already spent hours on the site despite the fact I only learned about it yesterday. Convonation.com allows users to connect through ideas. It’s really hard to explain. But worth checking out!” ConvoNation User Stephanie Hollander
ConvoNation acts as a liaison for thought leaders and their target audience while enabling regular users to be heard on an international scale. Whether they’re academics, politicians or everyday people looking to be heard, ConvoNation is officially solidifying itself as the home of intelligent discourse.
