streams public (visible to all) , private (invite-only),
or personal (just for you). You control access,
deciding who can view, interact, or collaborate.

I've been using Factr both to research my podcasts, and then plan and sequence them. Google searches sometimes got pretty distracting. Now Factr keeps me from going down wormholes. It's saved not just hours of my time, but weeks.

I used to hire research assistants for 20-30 hours a month. With Factr, I just set my parameters and relevant items show up as soon as they're published. I don't need assistants anymore, and I actually get better information, faster.

Factr gives me the best features of Dropbox, Facebook, Trello, and Tumblr. Everything I need is in one place. I can edit things, drag them from stream to stream, sort them in an intuitive way. Facebook's job is to distract me. Factr's job is to help me organize.

Factr is the perfect tool for content sharing, networking, and putting information out into the public space. It's also great for managed, close collaboration on potentially sensitive issues.

Factr is a fantastic alternative to Facebook, Twitter, and the other manipulative, ad-driven platforms I'm trying to escape. It feels good to avoid all the noise, the privacy violations, the endless ploys designed to steal my time and attention.

I used to spend 70 to 80% of my time just rounding up and forwarding information. With Factr it's more like 10%. Factr is an absolutely indispensible tool for sharing with clients, organizations, and my broader networks.
