Funl is a mobile/web-based application that allows users to ask and answer questions to the population, while viewing results through demographic filters such as: race, sex, gender, religion, age, etc. While embracing unique viewpoints around the world, Funl strives to create empathy through data visualization in a polling platform.
Inspired by arguments, Funl emphasizes both diverging and converging opinions to bring to surface empathetic viewpoints within demographics we are foreign to. Fueled by curiosity and relatable content, the platform attempts to make data inviting to analyze and formulate understandings on a personal and public level. The platform is designed to distill mass quantities of data in a digestible format that allows one to observe preferences and social shifts. It will provide an informative atmosphere where users can explore topics of interest and compare thoughts on questions as light-hearted as, what are the best toppings on a pizza? Or as serious as, what are your greatest political priorities? Funl will explore the motives behind asking and answering questions, while creating an emphasis on the diverse opinions formulated by individuals around the world.
