One year ago, when we launched Firstpost, we were a group of people fully aware that this was the most audacious digital project in India to date.
Today, a full year down the line, we look back at over 30,000 stories across a gamut of subjects and opinion; 91,700 comments from readers that were both laudatory and (very!) critical; and an interactive engagement across various social media that has both challenged and inspired us.
We have inspired hashtags on Twitter (Remember #FirstpostHeadlines?), we have had readers who subsequently became writers, and we have constantly sought to break our own boundaries and keep on engaging you, the reader, with our content.
The result, as our readers testify on a daily basis, is an obsessive, intelligent web journalism experience that’s guaranteed never to leave you bored.
So we present, in a nutshell, a video summary of Firstpost’s first year!
