Whether its echo chambers, fake news, or influencers, there is all a lot to navigate in today’s media reality. Plus, it’s tough to talk about headlines on social media without upsetting someone. Organize that reality with SUJO!
Are You in a Bubble?
SUJO is an easy way to pierce filter bubbles and understand the news better. SUJO is a social news app built for the post truth, influencer-driven era and lets you join in on comfortable, anonymous interaction around headlines. Escape the echo chamber!
Fact-checked News Mixed with Curated Opinion:
You probably don't have a lot of time to do fact-checking or listen to influencers you might disagree with. Our journalists and curators do the fact checking you don't have time to do, summarize the information from multiple publications, and give you an overview of what influential people are saying to their audience. You know how influencer opinion is going to affect you. It’s even more important to understand what opinionated influencers are saying to others. Don’t look away! SUJO gives you an easy way to give your thoughts about diverse opinion.
A Social News App:
SUJO is for people who want a social layer to their news, not news in their social media. Here you can inform yourself of the facts, get opinion from diverse perspectives, and find out how regular people feel about the news all in one place. Do you think the community is missing a perspective or piece of information? SUJO is a news app that lets you affect what content other users see. It’s like a news aggregator you can participate in!
Get Different Perspectives:
SUJO provides a unique way to understand how other people form their opinions by giving a window into what content they are consuming, who they are listening to, and what questions they are asking.
The SNiP: Social News Posts:
SNiPs are bite-sized pieces of news, opinion, and user contributions. Every SUJO SNiP gives you a curated article, a summary, up to three questions you can answer anonymously about the content, and a "statements" section. Let's face it, there are plenty of places where you can argue back and forth. A SUJO SNiP only allows single "statements" to minimize arguments and prevent trolling. Isn't it better to get a lot of opinions instead of watching people argue back and forth?
Have you ever thought the line between objective journalism and influencer opinion was blurred? SUJO not only clearly labels journalism, influence, and user-contributions in your feed, but you can also customize how much of each you want to see by topic!
SUJO provides a unique way to get news and talk news that’s fast and fun. Try out the first true social news app!

Ratings and Reviews
Great way to consume your news
SUJO’s interface is fantastic. There is great coverage of topics, it’s easy to access content and the polls are worth answering! I’m a big fan of the color coordination on th Home screen...much better than the other news apps. So far, I’ve been able to keep up with the world of sports and politics. I’m looking forward to consuming more pieces.
Social layer to current events
The app takes a little bit of time to get used to but it’s great way of educating yourself about different views on certain current topics. News shouldn’t just be about consuming material that you already agree with...it should challenge your beliefs to help you broaden your horizons and empathize with the other side!
Developer Response ,
We couldn't have said it better ourselves. People take action in real life based on what influential people are saying. Seeing different viewpoints is an important part of understanding the news. Please message us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any thoughts on how we can shorten the time it takes to get used to the app. We'd love to hear them!
Can’t go a day without checking it
I didn’t even know I needed an app like this in my life until I started using SUJO. My friend showed me the app I just think it’s so cool, I get the info I need about what’s going on in the world and then can ask these though provoking questions. Everyone should check it out!
