A NASA space engineer fixing Fake News
Ground is a new app that fills the information gap between social media and traditional news media. Ground busts Fake News by engaging users on the ground and using patent-pending AI tech and human verification.
Great balance between local and global news, very well designed and polished interface, the map viewCons:
none so far
I really really like the map view. I follow soccer and with ground I can zoom in on Manchester, Munich, Madrid, Barcelona, etc. to follow different matches and see what is happeningKash Pourdeilami has used this product for one day.
Great local news coverage, it distills the need to know infoCons:
none so far . . .
I posted a story about an auto accident closing lanes of traffic yesterday and received immediate response from other users that my post helped their commute. New is from many sources and verified as not being FAKE news.Wes Worsfold has used this product for one month.
Verification history (e.g. by the different Press entities) really helps me to trust the source.Cons:
Will need more users at the locations to really benefit from the live crowd responses.
I like the fact that I can see across the map which events are the important or active ones, as opposed to just living in my own North American bubble. The reliability and verification of the source is even more important to me.Shadab Rashid has used this product for one week.

I think the map is great idea and moves away from just the traditional list view. If you zoom in on the map you can see local news stories from lots of locations around the world.Guy Streetley has used this product for one month.
