Social media


Voat is a media aggregator and social networking service where users can submit content such as text, images, and links. Users can vote on the submissions. Content is organized by areas of interest called “subverses.”

Voat was founded in April 2014 as WhoaVerse and in December 2014 changed its name to Voat. The website notes that this is a community platform where you can have your say with no censorship.

The page has a mascot know as the Voat goat, which was designed and donated to the site.
