Welcome to News Rush - A news-based social network!
Reading news should be easy and interesting. There's no reason it can't also be fun. Get all your news on News Rush in 30 minutes per day and you'll be more informed than ever ... and in less time.
Top Ten Reasons to "Join the Rush":
- Diehard newsies love using our news aggregator tools to find cool news.
- Casual news consumers love our simple, consumer-friendly front end.
- We use points to provide you (and people who might choose to follow you) with information to facilitate smarter connections based on shared interests.
- We reward points for reading original news articles.
- We charge points to share news. We want you to be choosy and curate only the best news. People receiving your shares appreciate it!
- We reward points for good shares based on what happens after you share, measuring the next 24-hour period.
- The Rush Monitor keeps you up-to-date on each share in real time.
- We reward points for recruiting new Rushers.
- We rank your performance. For you competitive types, you can compare yourself to other Rushers per Interest. Are you a top Reader, Rusher or Recruiter? Find out by checking your Points Page.
- Everyone is an expert on something. Figuring out what that "something" was used to be a lot harder. Review the points other Rushers have earned per Interest and make sure they know their stuff before following them.
We have worked on the news reader for a while, but are just introducing the social parts of our experience. That means we won't be perfect - and we will continually roll out enhancements to facilitate social connections. For now, check out our multipurpose search box in the navbar. It returns articles, Rushers and particular Interests that we think you will like based on the term you input. This is a fast way to find the latest news on a topic (or the Rushers who share an Interest on that topic).
We need your help to make News Rush great. Please let us know what you think - and where we can improve. We'll do our best to answer everyone's feedback and make News Rush your daily destination for news.
Thank you again for Joining the Rush!
