Frequently asked questions

We now have an FAQ list that we hope will help you answer some of the more common ones.

1. What is Indiefact?

Indiefact is a platform information validation & exchange. We are making microblogging collaborative, so users can come together to have product conversations around almost anything. Be a part of the platform, make your contributions and keep yourself and the internet better informed.

2. Is Indiefact a social network?

Yes and no. We are an A-Social network. The user’s social identity does not matter, what they contribute to the network does. We have minimal placeholders for any social information for a user and we do not have a way for users to follow each other. This way we prevent famous people and influencers from acquiring a large influence on the network and provide everyone a more or less an equal voice.

3. What is open source approach to news & information?

This is based on a concept called open sourceJournalism https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open-source_journalism.

We apply this concept broadly to give our users a platform that enables them to collaborate on any piece of information  and to have productive conversations around them.

4. How do we validate information?

We have a community-based approach to validating information. We provide our users’ features to create a post/repost as a fact check, fake news, recommendation, news, etc for any existing post, online source or media. Additionally, like a forum, we provide users the ability to upvote and downvote on posts. We use the user’s contributions to analyze the sentiments to understand how a particular piece of information is being viewed in our network and give users this data so that they can use it to be better informed.

5. What can I upload as a post?

You can upload text, a media file or any online source with a link as a post on our platform. This way you can not only share but also validate any existing online source of information including news sites, blogs, twitter posts, etc.

6. What do I need to sign up?

Just an email id and password combination. Nothing else!

7. How do I get access to the app?

Just go to the app stores and download it. We are available on iOS & Android.

8. We are Gamified!

A user is assigned a spirit animal when they signup. Users earn XP for any action performed on the network and they can level up based on the number of points earned. Every other user can see a particular user’s contribution to the network to see how valuable and accurate they are a source of information.
