HYPick is a discussion based service which promotes content based on participation.
HYPick’s vision is to become the definitive discussion based service, allowing members to have their say on the web’s hottest topics while consolidating replies under one rooftop, from wherever they occur and on multiple platforms such as web and mobile.
No binary up/down voting system. The most active topics are promoted to the homepage based on our participation algorithm.

THE PROBLEM & OPPORTUNITY
Online Conversations are fragmented; Content gets distributed over multiple social sites and micro-blog services. HYPick will consolidate the conversation under one rooftop, giving the complete story.
Exposure of Top Content
The current leading discussion based services require its members to amass a large network of “friends” or “followers” in order to increase exposure of their submissions. Our algorithm focuses on the quality of a topic not the quantity of its voters.
