Jimmy Wales is hoping he may have found the solution to fake news.

We recently wrote about how search giant Google is looking to integrate fact checking into their search product, and Facebook looking to do something similar by hiring for a special role dedicated to help in the fight against fake news.  Now, Wikipedia founder, Jimmy Wales, thinks he may have come up with an entirely new solution when users scour the web for their information.  The new platform will be named Wikitribune.  Read on for more about the new product.

Make Money with Swagbucks Hulu Plus Offer

Swagbucks Hulu Plus
Which show will you watch?

If you have been holding out on a Hulu Plus subscription, or at least have been curious, cash back website Swagbucks has a great offer going where if you sign up for a Hulu Plus subscription, you can earn 2800 Swagbucks, which are worth $28.  The cheapest Hulu Plus subscription option is $7.99, so at the minimum, that would be the price you would be paying for the 2800 Swagbucks.

Deal Notes:

  • SB Awarded within 30 minutes.
  • Please note: If you cancel your membership within 8 days, your SB may be revoked.
  • Offer applies to new and eligible returning subscribers only.
  • This offer may only be redeemed (1) one time per user.

So if you decide to cancel after getting your first charge of $7.99 (give or tax with tax depending on your location) this has the potential to be a $20 money maker.  Just make sure to make note to cancel after eight days, but before you receive the next month’s charge.

If you are new to Swagbucks and what they offer, be sure to scroll down and look for the link on our Opportunities page for more information, or sign up here and earn $5 just for signing up!

Instagram Stories are Starting to Overtake Snapchat

Snapchat is battling with Instagram Stories
There can only be one…or several.

The old saying goes, “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery,” but in the case of Snapchat, it might not be receiving the flattery that it was hoping for.  According to a new report out from Business Insider, Facebook-owned app Instagram announced today that over 200 million users are using Instagram Stories every day which is up from 150 million in January.  This translates into more people using Instagram Stories than Snapchat, which had last reported 158 million daily users in February.

Snapchat’s shares had dropped approximately 1.5% in response to the news.

Recently Facebook has tried to attack Snapchat at its core features by ramping up adding the Stories feature to its Messenger, WhatsApp, and the main Facebook App, with photos and videos that are shared, appearing in chronological order, but then subsequently disappearing after 24 hours.
