Solution: Introducing friction by slowing online interactions and giving users the chance to think before sharing information is one solution

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
