About Threadloom

We believe the Internet is broken. It has never been easier to create content but ads and clickbait dominate search results and feeds, creating noise and confusion. Why does it feel increasingly difficult to find and follow what you care about?

Threadloom is developing a new quality signal to rank and route content. We connect users to high-quality information on the topics they're interested in, and to others who share those interests.

We use online forums to find healthy communities across all topics and provide services to help them grow; and use machine learning to identify the best topics and experts.
