What it does:
Everybody can break the news and expose it to the world in 8minutes, but time is running out on these items. Actually, an item has only 8 minutes to live. Only the people can keep items alive through social engagement. 8 responses will extend items’ live duration by 8 more minutes. In this way the community takes part in creating an exciting content stream and shapes our daily agenda.
How it beats the competition:
8minutes delivers social news like a conversation among friends. In addition, news that makes it to front-page is determined in real-time from social interactions, allowing everyone to take part in the race to keep news items alive.
