You get to learn about issues from their perspectives.
News media, editors, producers, reporters, commentators.
Scientists, social scientists, other scholars
Business executives, companies, industry groups and the people who work for them.
Politicians in and out of office, advisors
Celebrities and entertainers, writers and artists, outspoken athletes.
Check it out.
1. First you select a group of vetted sources like scientists, politicians, advocates, or celebrities to see what’s most important to them.
2. Pop a bubble to dive into an issue.
3. Slide through the groups again – to see what they each think about that issue.
The scrub cycle.
Soap uses artificial intelligence to read and sort thousands upon thousands of stories recommended by our verified sources to identifying key topics across “perspectives.”
We identify issues important to them all. And important ideas and emerging trends that are easy to overlook amid the drama of the big headlines.
Decide what makes sense to you.
We bring what’s bubbling up online, so you know what’s what. Swipe through Soap. Skim for highlights, dive for detail.
All in a few pops.
Help us realize the vision.
“It’s my dream scenario to have a place where I can trust the sources and know that I can see all different points of view.”
India, Age 16
Soap Public Media is a non-profit (501c3) with a robust platform that supports a vision for bringing trusted sources, clarity and context directly to youth through the Soap app for iOS , Soap on the Web, and Soap's News Literacy Guide & Exercises for journalism, social and media literacy programs in universities & high schools.
With Soap, users get the issues first then they get a broad range of perspectives for every issue — not the noise or personalized bias inherent in “What’s Trending” in social media, or the possible slant of getting all their news from one news service.
The Soap Public Media team is experienced in journalism, education, design and technology. We combine humans with AI to insure the integrity and quality of Soap.
We need your support to realize this vision, improve the behind-the-scenes efforts and the experience of using Soap.
