Where news and opinions meet.
Grid News Bureau
The world is an ever-changing place. It’s full of news and stories that affect us all. These create opinions in everyone.
Opinions matter. But being able to share them safely is not easy.
In today’s news or traditional social media platforms, confidence in your opinion being counted is practically non-existent.
Welcome to Opinion8, where people like you “opinion-ate” on major news issues and stories.
Eight questions are presented every day. Some are different, some stay the same for a few days.
Opinion8 is there to help your voice be counted. In real-time, 24/7, and without hate and trolls.
HOW DOES OPINION8 WORK?
Opinion8 makes it easy to share your opinion. Each story is summarized in a brief description and related question. There is no bias. There are no fancy word tricks that may confuse. There is no voting age limitation. You either agree, disagree or are undecided.
Are you curious how others feel about the same stories? Opinion8 offers real-time demographics for everything on the platform. See your opinion and those of others be counted together on the same issues. This is based on total data that cannot be linked to any individual Opinion8er. Your privacy is always protected.
LET'S TALK MORE ABOUT PRIVACY
Opinion8 takes your privacy extremely seriously.
First, none of the information shared on Opinion8 can be used to identify you.
Second, you are never asked to link your existing social media profiles to Opinion8.
Third, you are asked to create a very simple and totally anonymous profile, so that basic demographics can be calculated and shown to all, with full transparency of how it’s done.
If you want, you can delete your anonymous profile with just one tap, directly from the Home Screen.
Most social media apps send you searching through various screens and buttons.
Not Opinion8. Simply tap the “Security” button. That’s it. One button. Right on the Home Screen.
WHAT ABOUT HATE AND TROLLS?
Opinion8’s design and interactive capabilities stop free-text hate and trolls from showing up.
It’s a simple idea that works well to remove trolls and hateful backlash, which are the main reasons people are put off by “comments” in most news or social media apps.
Opinion8 also serves as a library of short videos for you to enjoy. Videos on interesting stories from across media are continually linked.
Maybe you like them, maybe you don’t, but they will always be relevant to our world, thought-provoking, and hopefully sometimes even inspiring.

Ratings and Reviews
Real information!! I’m so excited!
I love this! We get to see real, unpaid, opinions of the American people. I love that I can see where others stand on topics that matter. The break down of different demographics really helps me to see how my opinions relate to those of others, no matter our similarities and differences. I feel empowered!! I feel liberated!!!
Really great app! Not missing the commentary!
So cool to show this to my teenage son. He’s very civic-minded and interested in world events. It was nice to find something fun and smart that’s not flooded with the nastiness of regular social media. We’re enjoying comparing the demographics as well.
Right for the times
This is a great idea done right: opinions on relevant and interesting issues, with no trolls or hate. The demographic data in real time are amazing. Plus it doesn’t track me!
