Information to help you form your opinion on a topic.
With a 360°, you inform and educate your readers on the topic. A constructive contribution can influence your readers' decision to vote on a particular proposal. A 360° can:
Every registered voter can add a 360° for every topic everywhere.
On the radio, you hear statements and slogans from politicians or managers, in a magazine you read articles and columns from journalists, on a website you discover blogs from scientists or in a newspaper you see polls or sensational pictures. Everywhere around us we hear arguments that support and promote certain proposals, views, ideas or propositions. We invite you to share your 360° contributions on OpinionFirst so that many others will be informed on the topic! A topic can be viewed from many angles. With a 360°, you can add depth to any discussion.
OpinionFirst is a worldwide platform. Consequently, it is important to inform the right people about your 360°. Who should read your 360°? Which citizens, employees or members does it concern? OpinionFirst gives you a 'place' or 'group' suggestion, which you can change if needed.
Now that is clear who specifically should read your 360°, let's create it:
What is your 360° about? Select an existing OpinionFirst topic or start a new topic if that is not possible.
Express your 360° in a clear, complete and concise way in order to attract the maximum number of readers.
We recommend a catchy, not too long title.
Inform and educate your readers. You share your view, experience, knowledge, information, arguments, facts, recommendations, article, letter...

You immediately can start promoting your 360° with a click on the blue button.
A 360° is always related to a topic. If your topic is not already available, then first start a new topic and then add your 360°.
Don't hesitate, it is easy! You can publish a good article, a funny column, a convincing statement, some historical perspective or background, or any other supporting information. You can enhance your arguments with relevant references, a convincing picture or link to an informative article, video or other media. Or create a poll or statement in which others can participate. Or promote your favorite proposal and convince others to vote for this proposal!
The best way to actively promote proposals is to become an opinion leader. In case you don't have time or you prefer not to actively promote a proposal, then you still could place a 360° to convince others about a specific proposal.
We do our best to maintain a good quality standard and only reject 360° contributions that don’t meet OpinionFirst's standards. You can help to immediately report abuse under 'About' which can always be found at the bottom of every proposal, petition or 360º.
