Distractify was founded in 2013 with one thought in mind: Distractions aren't just welcome — sometimes, they’re necessary. Initially a viral news site, we’ve evolved as quickly as the internet has and have since become a destination for highly relevant, meticulously researched stories about the celebrities, entertainment news, and social trends your friends will be talking about tomorrow.
Today, Distractify is owned and operated by Engrost, Inc.
Our editorial team is dedicated to covering, creating, and curating the best of what’s out there in a world of endless distractions, and doing so without any bias or subjectivity. We tell stories in a passionate and purposeful way that highlights the diversity of not only our virtual newsroom, but also the world at large.
At Distractify, we listen to our readers and communities to provide coverage that is as reliable as it is relatable. We are committed to ensuring all our content is accurate, fairly represented, and thoroughly vetted. We have a zero-tolerance policy for plagiarism, and adhere to the highest of standards when it comes to transparency — our writers and editors are not permitted to accept gifts, money, or any other payment in exchange for coverage on the site. Any article that is sponsored will be declared as such.
Our editorial team is dedicated to their journalistic integrity and follows the Society of Professional Journalists’ Code of Ethics: Seek the truth and report it, minimize harm, act independently, and be accountable and transparent.
Accuracy and Fact Checking
Our writers and editors are experts at crafting stories that reflect our culture. As such, our dedication to accuracy is second-to-none; our writers are required to thoroughly research and confirm the facts within their stories, which are reviewed by copy editors for typos, clarity, tone, and accuracy before publishing.
Though our writers and editors are held to the highest of standards when it comes to copy editing and fact checking, mistakes do happen. Catch a mistake in one of our stories? Send an email to email@example.com to let us know (gloating about out-editing a team of spelling and grammar nerds is optional).
