Interesting Stories, Debates, and Comments All in One Place
PolicyMic is the fastest growing platform for high-quality debate around the news and current events. As our community has grown, the number and depth of our stories and debates has grown, making it hard to keep track of all the recent news, most Mic’d comments, and hottest debates. With the stream, we’re making it easier to find and engage with the stories that matter most to you. Your stream sorts stories and comments by Mics, comments, time published, editors' weight, your topics of interests, and the people you follow – making it easier to find the most interesting discussions all the time.
Allies and Rivals – Next Generation Following
We’re very excited to introduce our new follow tool, called Allies and Rivals. Not only can you now follow certain users and stay up to date on their posts, you can also select which camp they go into. You should follow users you think are smart – Allies are the ones you generally agree with and Rivals are the ones you disagree with but respect. Their activities will be more likely to show-up in your stream.
With the new profile, you’ll be better able to communicate who you are. The new shortened bio is supplemented with fields for your education and interests. The topics you add on your profile will automatically be added to your stream. Your political leaning is important because it allows us to better foster debates with perspectives you're likely to disagree with.
Invite Your Friends!
Have friends you want to debate with or hear from? Invite them to join PolicyMic. We’ve made it easier to share PolicyMic with friends. You’ll get a Mic for each friend that joins!
