    Factr is built to help you,
    not those who profit from exploiting you.
    Factr isn’t like other social networks. Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, YouTube, Pinterest, Tumblr, Google, Yahoo, etc. are all built on a cunning business model: You provide them with your valuable time, your content, your attention, and your personal data (for free). Then they profit by selling everything you’ve given them—to advertisers, marketers, and worse.
    Factr is built for you, not for them. Our success depends on providing a service that you value. We provide our basic service for free. We support it by selling our premium service to power users and organizations.  Factr helps you do the things that matter. It helps you discover. It helps you filter. It helps you organize. It helps you publish. It helps you connect. It helps you collaborate. Most of all, Factr helps you save time, not waste it.

    Switching to Factr has saved not hours of my time, but weeks
    Devin S. Moss, Producer, host of "The Adventures of Memento Mori"
    Uses Factr for research, time-saving, cutting distractions
    The premise of the show is that listeners follow me through a perpetual existential crisis, as I discuss mortality, the cosmos, and the science, culture, mystery and mysticism of death. And I’m always looking for new and interesting ways to explore that path. So gathering and organization is absolutely critical, I’m always looking the right stories in the quickest amount of time.
