If you haven't checked out Volkalize, you're seriously missing out on an ongoing discussion relating to politics and current events. The site, which is the brainchild of 23-year-old Jordan Bosstick, seeks to become the mecca of discussion concerning trending topics in the news. It offers a neutral ground for anyone to voice their opinions without catching the flak within their current media circles.
The site went live on May 21, and Javier Manjarres of the Shark Tank cited Bosstick's vision for this new platform.
Social media is the best way to engage people, so I knew if I wanted to get people talking about politics I had to create a platform on the web. Users can create a topic for discussion or engage in a discussion already trending.
We also make it easy for Volkalize members to share entire discussions on other social media platforms, to spread the information they care about with their peers outside of Volkalize. I believe we can collectively find the solutions to our problems through real conversations with each other
Every discussion topic, every post, and every comment can be shared through multiple social media outlets to enhance its distribution. With 500 people already signed up before the official launch, Volkalize has the potential to be the go-to place for political discourse. By meshing social media, politics, and culture, Bosstick may have discovered a formula that could lead to massive growth and success. After all, concerning conservatives, we fail miserably when it comes to tying those elements together, and it's killing us with future voters.
So, do yourself a favor. Create an account, log onto the site, and participate in the debate surrounding the problems facing America and the world.
