What is Social Rouge?

Social Rouge is a well-curated site that is dedicated to helping you discover the best in art, design, and all things cool!

That all sounds nice, but I still don’t totally get it. What type of thing are you?

We’re purpose-driven. In the near future, experts predict that all content on the web will double every 72 hours. Social Rouge is here to help. We hand-select every piece of content on the site, Social Rouge sifts through the internet for the best stories and visuals and presents the well-curated collection everyday.

Who’s the team?

Content for Social Rouge is hand-selected by a pack of content hungry hounds lead by RED KING SINGH.

Who’s your audience?

Basically, anyone who has a deep desire to discover the best stories and visuals from across the web, but don’t want to waste their precious time searching for something enlightening and entertaining to consume.

How can I help?

Oh, you’re way too kind. You don’t need to do anything, but since you asked, the most important thing you can do is to share stories and visuals you love from Social Rouge with everyone you know as often as humanly possible.

How do you make money?

Well, first of all, we don’t make much yet. But our model is to connect people with awesome content creators who are looking to grow their audience via the sponsored stories you might have noticed on your way into the site.

Are you serious about not putting banner ads on the site?

Yep. We have little time and fewer resources to focus on anything but the user, who is our first, second and third priority. We believe we can accomplish a lot by taking our time to find a business model that does not disrupt or detract from the user experience. With that in mind, expect to see some experiments in the next few months.

Where are the comments?

Our goal is to foster a community of people who are focused on sharing the best images and video within their existing groups of friends on FacebookTwitter, and wherever else. So if you’ve got something burning to say about one of the videos or images you see on Social Rouge, share it on social media and start the conversation there.
