12 Top News Stories in 200 Words or Less
It's Time to Informucate!

Do you want your news, but you want to read it fast? Skip the ho-hum and get right to the juicy details with Informucate. This is a newly launched website that updates regularly, bringing you 12 of the most popular news stories running current in just 200 words or less. For your convenience, the journalists writing the stories also include explanations about jargon, concepts, and key terms, right alongside their articles, so you don't leave the site scratching your head and wondering, 'What did I just read?'


The news stories run the gamut of genres, and cover everything from entertainment to what's trending, to money, and they always include the ever popular 'bad behavior' report. What else will you find when you Informucate (yes, I did just make it a verb!)? You'll find a fast facts video encyclopedia that includes fun daily trivia...and a fun spin on pop culture.


Because the articles are so concise, it only takes you five minutes a day to get informucated! Keep up to date with what's going on; be able to join in on the conversations at the water cooler; and send the howdy-do to your neighbor over the fence alongside a comment on the day's latest trending facts. You'll look and feel more informed, because hey, you will be!

Head on over to the Informucate website to learn more. You can also follow along with what they're doing on their Facebook and/or Twitter.

Have you gotten your Informucate fix in today?

I've never heard of this site before but now that you've mentioned it I think I need to head over there. Short articles are right up my alley.

This is very interesting. I like that it is short and concise so you can get things done quickly.

alissa apel said...

I never knew about this, but I'm glad I do now. I like to be informucated. I use a lot of current topics in the classroom for different projects. One is an editorial illustration that my 1st year students do. It's good to stay up to date on current events.

Sandee said...

I just spent some time over there and found lots of news stories that I hadn't heard about. Very nicely done and easy to navigate.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

Ricci said...

I love this! I usually always skim through the newspaper anyway.

This sounds like a good site to have bookmarked on your phone. It would be nice to get my news instantly.

Amanda Simkin said...

I'm always looking for quick and easy ways to stay on top of what's going on in the world. It can be a little tricky with two boys to chase around and a business to run.

Yellow Tennessee said...

Being able to get just the facts without all the fluff sounds like the perfect way to get your news.

Lindsey Paris said...

way better than scrolling facebook to watching the news for an hour.

Alli Smith said...

This is my right up my alley! I like to know what's going on in the world, but I don't have the time nor inclination to watch the news. I just want the highlights, please.

Orihimekurosaki said...

I really like this idea because many articles have so many paragraphs that are just fillers until they get to the main topic. This will truly save me time and effort.

Ashley said...

This sounds like the perfect news website for me! Less filler, more info. Thank you so much for alerting me to Informucate, I will definitely be checking them out :)

Jessica said...

I think this would appeal to me! I just can't stand sitting through a news program for a half hour or longer and listening to such banal banter!

Heather Lawrence said...

Love that I can get what I need without the stuff I don't need.
Bookmarking this to my phone.

Prime Beauty said...

Heading over there now--what a great idea!

Mama to 5 said...

Sounds like a great way to stay up to date with the latest news and information. I like that there is nothing to toss but it's all electronic!

Colette S said...

I rarely do the news, unless I want to know, after a few days.
But it's nice to have it one place.

Lori Gunn said...

What a special treat for getting the meat of the news quickly. We have rather boring newscasters in our area, so I speed past what sounds uninteresting. This seems much better.

debdenny said...

I have not heard of this. Sounds great to get the news straight up.

RANE said...

I love the idea of Informucate .. I'm not a fan of watching the News because it tends to drag on but it would be great to hear all the juicy stuff without all the fluff

Liz Mays said...

That sounds awesome. I'll have to give it a look too.

Theresa Mahoney said...

That's my kind of news! I hate how a lot of them are going to video watching or tons of click throughs to get the news. Getting it all in 5 minutes is awesome!

I don't always have time to catch the news on their time slots so I normally rely on websites and replays online. This s a nice way to catch up, especially if I'm out and about without a tv in sight! Thanks!

Ron Leyba said...

Great! Will try their website/service today.

I just go directly to the app of the news I watch and get informed that way. It seems to work for me.

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Rosey - I think this is too Americanised for me ... I prefer slightly more serious and probably written word ... but interesting to read about it .. cheers HIlary

MsCrookedHalo said...

Does it come with a link to click so that you can read the more in-depth story if you chose to? Or did I miss that in the post?

Angie Scheie said...

This looks like a great site! I used to love The Daily app, but then they ended:-(. I'm getting pretty behind on what's current so I'll def check this out!

Victoria Heckstall said...

this i got to try for my self. Ive been a big fan of Yahoo and Google News, this might be a nice addition to my daily coffee brew.

Boulder Locavore said...

I have not heard about informucate before but love the idea of a compilation of news in one spot. Will check it out.

Tough Cookie Mommy said...

I love having access to news on the go. Although I like keeping up to date, I don't have a lot of time to sit and read the news.

Felicia Carter said...

This is a really great idea. I wish there was something like this when I was in high school so I could stay more up to date on events for history class discussions.

Camesha | Mama Motivator said...

What a cool idea! Just get right to the meat of the stories! Sometimes all you have time for are the quick news bites.

Chasing Joy said...

This sounds like a great Resource. I'm going to check it out ao i can get informucated. LOL

amotherworld said...

What a smart idea - little blurbs of top news that you'd see on our 24-hour news channel but you can read all in one place.

Katarina K said...

Very interesting website! I follow a lot of news and sometimes I do get foggy mind afterwards.

Tiffany @ Daily Leisure said...

This is perfect for busy moms! If we are interested in a story, we can just head to google and get the real scoop!

Jennifer Tammy said...

Sometimes you don't have the time to really delve into the news, so this sounds like a great option on those busy days. I do like more details, though - but at least I can judge if a situation or story is worth reading more about!

~ Noelle said...

That sounds like a site I need to be checking out

Momi Glenz said...

Awesome! I'll check it out and thanks for sharing!
