The initial intension of the project was to find pinpointed information quickly. This was later revised and modified through the course of the project. The platform had to be a content sharing website. A platform that will store information, potentially in several types of media( articles, documents, videos, photos), and is meant to inform, engage and entertain users. A site that is focused on providing news or frequently updated posts.
