Welcome to Goodpoint, a new way to read and share ideas. We’ll walk you through the basics of how it works.
Articles are made of ideas. Click any idea to see its explanation.
An article can have many ideas. The writer will organize them in the way they think makes the most sense.
Decide whenever you want
Clicking the checkmark when you agree with an idea is the fundamental and most important action in the Goodpoint experience.
It is called “believing” because it means the idea will get saved to your user profile. This lets other users see that you agreed with it.
Additionally, ideas underneath any checked ones are tracked. You will see a faint checkmark for these.
This is done because on Goodpoint, writers can use ideas in mulitple articles! By tracking both checked and supporting ones, we can show you whenever they appear again.
See when friends share your beliefs
As you make decisions, Goodpoint tells you if other users are making similar choices. This is called “belief alignment.”
Goodpoint also shows how much of an article you have agreed with. This is called “alignment.”
We have found that this can help make information easier to evaluate.
Goodpoint always shows you someone who has already agreed with an idea. This is not necessarily the writer – it may just be someone you know, for example.
Agreeing with an idea on Goodpoint means you’re willing to tell it to others.
Forget an idea
To change your decision about an idea or if you think the support is wrong, simply uncheck it.
This has a special purpose on Goodpoint. Forgetting an idea not only removes it from your user profile, it also removes any checkmarks from ideas it supports.
This tells the writer that they are making a mistake or losing your interest.
That’s it! This is all you need to know. Please check back periodically as our features and designs are updating regularly.
