A new source of traffic

We are building the world's largest verified content engine. Since everyone who publishes content on Legitimate has a verified identity, users can be sure that the content they read has come from a verifiable source. Any content you add to your profile whether published directly in Legitimate or on another platform gets included in our content engine.

We aim to become the first place people look to when they want to search for content or news from different sources but without the worry of fake news or bad actors.

A content-based audience

There’s a time and place to see pictures of your cat; sometimes people just want to know when you post new content. That’s why building an audience on Legitimate is different. You can keep your personal social media profiles separate, which is great for both you and your followers.

Increasing your followers on Legitimate also gives prospective employers insight into how many potential viewers you could bring to their platform when writing content.
