I want to share a small piece of press that we got in Wired. The article talks about how software is being used to secretly manipulate people’s political views, which is immoral and wrong. The reason I wanted to share it though is because the authors use Voices as an example of political software that is ethical. Voices is an example “with much more transparency and respect for users”.
One of the ways we create a trustworthy experience like this is by making it very clear to the community that we do not share any of their personal information with third parties. Users also love that we don’t force them to create an account to use Voices. Voices will never require a Facebook login. Protecting people’s privacy is an essential part of encouraging political discourse.
We’re so thankful to hear that people are feeling the respect and honesty that we try to build into Voices. If you have any questions or feedback about how we're working to increase civic engagement, please do not hesitate to contact us. We love hearing from people who care about their communities.
