About Us

This website is all about news items from all over the world.  It is an aggregate of some of the best news websites.  This guarantees the latest, up-to-the-minute news that’s relevant and useful.  When we say “best news websites”, we don’t mean just the big agencies like BBC, CNN, and Al-Jazeera.  These websites usually get their news items from news agencies such as Reuters, United Press International, Associated Press, and Agence France Press.  Furthermore, news websites in Asia, Africa, and South America rely heavily on these news agencies simply because they cannot afford to have their own foreign correspondents in major world capitals.  This means that the information that they are able to gather are more or less the same, and coming from the same angle.Articles churned out by anonymous netizens may even have more angles than what some corporate news establishments write.

Aside from getting updates from big news agencies, this website, locationmode.com, also gets news from independent news sites from all over the world such as The Independent, The Real News Network, The Christian Science Monitor, AlterNet and WorldNews. Readers are rest assured that they are getting all sides of the story with news that is unbiased and censorship-free.

What sorts of news stories should you expect from this website?  Of course, we will always have the latest and most compelling world headlines.  Instead of getting world headlines from one source alone, we will be filtering them to get stories from various points of view and angles. There will also be opinion articles about significant issues related to the headlines.  We will also include other important headlines that are ignored by most major news outlets.

Each area of the world has their own regional news that’s significant only for them.  Because of this, we have divided our political, local and economic news per area. It is divided into the following regions:  United Kingdom, United States, North America, Latin America, Caribbean, Australia and the Pacific, Middle East, East Asia, Europe and Africa.

Aside from regional divisions, we also acknowledge that some people, because of our global culture, are not divided geographically but by interest, advocacy or leaning.  That is the reason why we also came up with several sections such as Sports, Media, Social Justice, Health Care, Human Rights, Environment, Lifestyle, Technology, Business, Entertainment and Culture and Weather.

We adhere to news reporting with the following characteristics:  accuracy, fairness, completeness, honesty, impartiality, transparency, and respect.  This is at the core of what we do here.  We also consider the depth of content when we choose or write our own stories.  Our main goal is to inspire action and advocacy, not merely awareness.  Our stories are unbiased and non-partisan. We have no political leanings and we do not endorse any political parties. We wholeheartedly welcome feedback from users and readers.  We like to highlight our partners, who are mostly independent media sources.

We also put a lot of effort into the website’s design.  We thought a lot about symmetry, balance, and usability in our design.  There is a distinction between the headline as well as the other story heads.  We also have a simple left navigation bar, which points the user to a certain section using a drop-down menu. We offer readers the option of sharing each news item on selected social media sites such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, or to email the news item to someone on their directory.

This website combines all the best features of the most popular world news websites – and it’s a guarantee that we will keep it among the finest by making regular improvements.
