    Pros: 

    Easy way to make your way through the "news jungle" on a daily basis. Practical, trustworthy, fast and integrated! Love it!

    Cons: 

    The main con was a lack of a browser integration, but that has been solved with the chrome extension!

    I have been using this platform since it's beta release. I have always been a big fan of the concept, and the multiple development iterations. Unfortunately, after a while of constant use I didn't have time to use the platform as much as I wanted because of it's detached nature from news and articles. I was longing for a browser integration. Now that the extension is finally a reality, I have seen my usage spike again, reading and reviewing articles on a daily basis and finding useful reviews to guide me through the multiple media outlets! This project is becoming something amazing!

    Pros: 

    True value add; easy to use; good community

    Cons: 

    Not much. More reviews will make the platform more powerful.

    There's a real value add here for seeing what people are saying about the quality of a news article. The Tribeworthy community, while small and growing, is very high quality. There is an active effort to encourage unbiased critiques of news.

Hey everyone! We did what any decent platform would do and listened to what our users wanted. Tribeworthy users wanted to review the articles they were already reading and be able to see an article's rating right as they land on it. The Chrome extension achieves that and more! The extension allows you to: -Get notified of an article’s rating right when you land on it -See at a glance what other news consumers trust or distrust, and why -Post new articles to tribeworthy.com simply by giving it its first review -Review articles wherever you go, pointing out biases, logical fallacies, and mistakes to your fellow news consumers. -Up-vote/down-vote other users’ reviews -To sum it up, we’ve connected news consumers and made it easy to hold authors and news outlets accountable for their publications Here is what you can expect as the extension improves: -Suggested relevant articles -Beautifully integrated search functionality -Rating pages for every author and news outlet -Social sharing integration for article rating pages -Invite someone you know to review a specific article -Sign-up functionality within the extension(Facebook and Twitter integration included) -Complete redesign and further gamification of the review process For those of you eager to use the extension with a different browser, we will be supporting Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Edge soon(can’t give a hard date yet) Our team has worked for 2 years, put in over 5,000 hours, conducted more than 1,000 interviews with audience engagement journalists, media literacy educators, and news consumers- so we hope the insights show through in the product. Looking forward to hearing your feedback! Tribeworthy Team

If anyone has been clicking the small icon at the top right of your chrome browser and expecting something... we're sorry. You need to land on a news article to see the benefits of the extension. We did this so you didn't get bombarded when there was no reviews... @joshdance was nice enough to give us some helpful feedback on how to reduce this confusion. THanks Josh!

We're super happy to hear everyone's feedback on our chrome extension. Check out the full description to learn what the extension does now and what we have planned for the future.

There are two barriers to you reaching news you can trust. 1) news publishers focused on earning your clicks, not your trust and 2) you have no tools to hold online authors accountable. Does our chrome extension solve these problems? Let's have a discussion.

@feslerjared @chasepalmieri what do you guys think about doing an integration with Refind? i.e. enabling this for my Refind account — and having it integrate w/ their service/site/extension? They already have a Refind Bar that has annotations and information about what you're looking at... as a Firefox user (currently) I'm not sure I'll be able to get the most out of this Chrome Extension.
Chase PalmieriMaker@chasepalmieri · 👨🏻‍💻 CoFounder & CEO at Tribeworthy
@chrismessina We like Refind! I'm curious if you think integrating with Refind would be more useful than Tribeworthy coming out with the Firefox version of the extension? Are you thinking Tribeworthy could garner more reviews by providing the review process to users on Refind?
Chris Messina@chrismessina · Product designer & entrepreneur
@chasepalmieri I was able to install the extension using Chrome Store Foxified — so I'll see how it works out! Just seems like the kind of thing that would be a good match for the Refind content ecosystem. I'd also like to see twitter.com integration — maybe w/ an embedded review in link previews in tweets that would help me decide whether to click through or not?

@chrismessina Hey Chris, I'm glad you were able to get it downloaded. What you said at the end is precisely how we envision Tribeworthy's ratings being used in the future. Just as you see Rotten Tomatoes ratings next to movies in the iTunes store, the goal is to display our article ratings next to articles wherever they are, helping news consumers decide for themselves which articles are worth reading. Having Tribeworthy integrated with Refind would be great, especially if Refind was displaying Tribeworthy ratings next to their content. If you can put us in touch with their team, we'd love to explore that option!

Installed the Chrome extension. If it delivers this could be awesome.
Jared FeslerMaker@feslerjared · Co-Founder & Brand Manager, Tribeworthy
@joshdance How can we help 'deliver' this product for you? Does it come down to the number of reviews per article?
Joshua Dance@joshdance · Engineer, Product, athlete, indie hacker
@feslerjared I think it comes down to the coverage, and the accuracy. If it turns into people voting article up and down based on their opinions, would miss the mark. If it is a way to factual analysis and a general valid sentiment around articles, could be great!
Jared FeslerMaker@feslerjared · Co-Founder & Brand Manager, Tribeworthy
@joshdance I think you're spot on. To help facilitate valid and helpful reviews we'll be tweaking the up/down-vote to include "Helpful" "Not Helpful". People's opinion on the topic will be less helpful while, as you said, "factual analysis and general valid sentiment" would be helpful. What do you think of that potential change?
