Cracia is an online social platform that empowers Chileans to seek social change by incorporating the practice of democracy into their daily lives, helping them learn about it, and providing new ways to make their voices heard. Users interact with Cracia through a mobile application that presents a linear feed with 5 sections: News, Local Communities, Issue Hubs, Community Voices, and Democracy Q&A. The platform enables users to share original content, participate in discussions, get visibility on issues within their communities, support local petitions, participate in advocacy campaigns, easily contact representatives, and learn or share their knowledge about the Chilean democratic system. Cracia focuses on constructiveness, ensured through identity verification to prevent abuse, community-chosen moderators to shield against hate speech, constructiveness-oriented content voting and ranking, and transparent user profiles that display all the content a user has published and the net score their content has received.
