2016 Community Update

As we dive a bit deeper into 2016, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the incredible journey we’ve been on since launching NewsUp. Together, we’ve grown from an idea to a full-time staff supporting a growing international user-base. We’re about to take a huge step forward, and are incredibly excited to launch our For Publishers program.

For Publishers is essentially a quiz publishing and syndication platform for news organizations and brands. We will continue publishing original content on NewsUp, and will allow our publishing partners to do the same. By opening up the platform, other publishers will now be able to leverage our technology and deliver a wider array of topics for our users.

We're also excited to formally introduce Ara Hacopian as our new Chief Technology Officer.  Ara has over 12 years of software development experience, holds a law degree and had a brief stint as a touring musician.  Needless to say, we're stoked to build the next phase of NewsUp with him.

In other news, we'll be traveling quite a bit this year to spread the NewsUp gospel. We're making stops at some amazing conference like Content Connect, Collision, and SXSW. 

We're looking forward to expanding our community this year, and we hope to see you out there!  

All the best,
