The Good News Machine

An app that serves up a positive headline every 90 seconds. View it in full-screen.

Good news is best when it’s shared.

Share this with your friends and loved ones, and help spread some positivity around.

Why did we build this?

What is this, and why did we build it?

During this pandemic, we’re all facing an historic disruption to life. While it's important to stay informed, too much bad news can have a serious impact on mental, social, and emotional health.

So, we decided to turn the news on its head.

We’re using our technology to sift through headlines, find good news, and serve it up to all users simultaneously, no matter where they are. Users can vote for headlines they love with emoji reactions, and can chat freely with others. No matter what device you're on, you'll see the same chat, and the same headlines, as everybody else.

PubNub is all about sustaining the connections between people around the world. So, we’ve used our platform to create a simple, communal conduit for positivity.
