What is Upworthy?

The internet was supposed to open doors to new ideas. But too often it’s the opposite and narrows our world instead of broadening it. And fills it with empty stories that drown out the ones that matter most. But sometimes a story opens a door to a new and better world. It might make you feel surprised, happy, inspired, motivated — even sad. Stories like that give us what we’re missing in life. They connect us with each other. They change our hearts and our minds. They are worth our time. Upworthy tells those stories, and helps them reach millions every day. Stories that are worth your time — and that make the world a better place. (source)

Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others. A few of these Upworthy stats come from their own reports, but some are based on news reports and not official company tallies. No information contained on DMR should be relied upon to make investment decisions. Basically, this is the best I can find and I don’t guarantee anything to be 100%.
