WHAT WE ARE
HyperVocal, originally launched in October 2010, is a next-generation media company. On HyperVocal.com, we offer our readers a comprehensive look at the complete, hyper-frenetic news cycle. Our homepage feeds & customizable e-newsletter is powered by HypeScore, our proprietary new￼s curation algorithm measuring social virality of top headlines amongst categorical influencers. For example, if you want to know what the top political influencers are reading and sharing, from across the web, in real-time, our Politics Influencer Feed showcases those headlines and who is influencing that news.
Through our HyperVocal Originals, we are purveyors of the vital and the viral, online hunters and gatherers of what’s out there you need to see and read, all in our unique voice. We’re post-partisan Internet Sherpas, groundskeepers of rationality, arbiters of reality and pseudo-nonsense.
HyperVocal is co-owner of the ongoing event series, StartUp RockOn. Additionally, from 2012-2014, HyperVocal produced and hosted SiriusXM’s weekday “Politics Powered By Twitter,” (aka @PoliticsRadio) which aired on the main politics channel, POTUS (Channel 124).
We’re also members of our community who strive to be a force for social good. We donate a portion of our profits to education and literacy programs to help empower a hyper-literate and informed generation to follow. Every click really does help educate a child.
