KEEP #HYRO ALIVE! (Free 80-Word Article Summaries)

SIGN THIS PETITION TO KEEP HYROGLF ALIVE! OUR STAKEHOLDERS NEED TO SEE MORE USER ACTIVITY AND SUMMARY CONTRIBUTIONS TO KEEP THE PLATFORM ALIVE AND DEVELOP MOBILE APP! SHARE PETITION AND SAVE #HYRO! You're Invited (Sign Up Link) Featured Summaries "The germiest place in your home and the best way to combat those microbes" "What Happens to Your Body on No Sleep" "The shoe industry is at war" "I Accidentally Uncovered a Nationwide Scam on Airbnb" The Problem Everyday, we're flooded with attention-grabbing headlines. We initially click, scroll and browse to get more details. The initial intrigue suddenly dissipates with each wave of words we come across. We become conflicted, wanting to know more but turned-off and perhaps even overwhelmed by the oceans of long-winded text. We constantly feel behind, lacking the time (or attention-spans) to learn more about topics that interest us. To make matters worse, we're in a constant mental battle with advanced algorithms designed to distract us and capture our attention (eg Social Media, Netflix/YouTube Suggestions). As a quick-fix to help alleviate the stress, we save and bookmark articles with the genuine intention of eventually going back and reading them. But months later, we still haven't gotten around to it... The Solution Hyroglf is the new Summary-Sharing Platform. On HYRO, anyone can post 80-word limit summaries about anything. We're based out of Washington (DC) and we've added thousands of summaries since launching in 2017. Imagine how much more informed our society could be if we consistently condensed 10-30 minute articles in 30-60 second summaries? By making interesting and important information easier to absorb and remember, Hyroglf is Summarizing Your World.  Your Role The goal of this petition is to make you aware of Hyroglf and encourage summary contributions. By signing this petition, you're validating the concept of summarizing interesting and important information. Ultimately, we need more users and contributors (writers) to succeed. Once potential contributors see the demand for more summaries from people signing this petition and from you sharing HYRO summaries, they'll supply more summaries. In addition to signing the petition, you're invited to Sign Up for Hyroglf using the link below.
