Staance is your dashboard to the world. It is a new way to explore the stories unfolding in the world right now. But unlike news sites, Staance gives you the power to reach out and influence each story.
HOW DO I WORK THIS THING?
With a click, you can compare your thoughts on current events and trending topics with real-time opinions from around the world. Here’s how it works:
Staance presents you with an assertion
You agree or disagree, and immediately see how your "Staance" stacks up
You can then share a more detailed opinion in real-time and see how others respond
Chat with other users around topics that interest you
Follow other users and make friends to engage with your posts
WAIT, WHAT'S AN ASSERTION?
An assertion is a bold point of view you either agree or disagree with. It’s not a statement of fact but an absolute statement of opinion.
IS AN ASSERTION EVER THE OPINION OF STAANCE?
No, absolutely not. It’s created to simply spark the conversation, but it’s up to you and everyone else to guide the discussion. Some assertions are, however, quotes from prominent voices.
CAN I POST ASSERTIONS?
Yes, we welcome all voices. It is a easy to post your assertion in any of our mobile apps, on the web, or on our desktop app for Mac, PC, and Linux.
WHY CAN'T I EDIT MY STAANCE AFTER IT'S POSTED?
We think there’s a lot of power in real-time opinions. Once a Staance is posted and people begin agreeing and disagreeing, changing the Staance could change the opinion being shared making the agrees and disagrees invalid. To prevent this, we don't currently provide users a way to edit assertions once posted publicly. However, you can always delete your assertion and repost.
