RYOT offers up a different kind of news platform. Not only can you find out breaking news but it encourages you to take action. Whether that action is donating to a charity, signing a petition, registering to vote, or just spreading awareness it allows you to become active! I found RYOT when a friend shared this article on Facebook about Mario A.I.
I would start your journey by watching the video on the About page. It explains the premise behind the site and how you can take action.
Then head on back over to the main page and dive into the latest news stories. I was not surprised to find news about the travel ban across the Northeast of the United States, or the viral content surrounding the incoming bad weather, but I was really excited to see what would be attached to the Take Action link at the bottom of the page. I was not disappointed! The story links up to the charity One Warm Coat that works to provide warm coats to people in need.
You’ll find that you can find a lot of content already featured on the main page, but if you look along the top of the page you’ll find a navigation strip with the categories: US, World, Entertainment, Viral, Good, Lifestyle, Oddities, and last but not least Science & Tech. A little bit of something for everyone.
