We’ve heard your requests for more videos loud and clear. theCHIVE was started as a little photo blog six years ago and it’s a daily struggle in the ever changing digital landscape to stay true to our simple photo roots. A drunk man once said, if you are not evolving, you are dying. While we post a few video gems on theCHIVE everyday, we pass up a lot of great videos that we come across to maintain theCHIVE’s consistent content of photo galleries. Our editors are THE master curators of all things awesome and they know where to find the very best videos, usually before they go viral. The world is too big to be contained on a single website, which is why we are proud to announce theBOMB.com. It will house all the best videos, curated by humans, from all ends of the internet along with your original user submits.
theBOMB.com is a one-stop shop where you can find all the most hilarious, entertaining, compelling and provocative videos blowing up any given day. What makes theBOMB especially unique is that you can directly influence just how popular a video will be by "bombing" the videos. Based on the videos' view count, viral sharing velocity and the overall BOMBscore tally, a state-of-the-art algorithm (not really) will calculate what videos are just OK, and what videos are going ape-shit! In other words, the cream will rise to the top.
This algorithm takes into account 50 new videos we hand select everyday -there is no robot scouring the web to see what’s trending and getting the most views. This would make theBOMB a circle jerk of cheesy Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber music videos. F that.
So without further delay, give theBOMB a test run! Discover for yourself why you'll never need to scour the internet for hours on end anymore in order to find all the most entertaining videos that surface every single day. We do the work so you don't have to.
