Today we celebrate the release of our new web design, which turns every story into a portal for exploration. Whether you're coming to us from Instagram, Facebook, Google, Reddit, email, or someplace else, if you love the things we do—such as archaeology, birds, maps, space and exploring our planet—we’ll help you discover something new.
The changes are driven by the same impulse that launched National Geographic 130 years ago: to inspire curiosity about our world and to build communities of people eager to explore it.
New features include endless feeds, swipeable card stacks, and simpler navigation around the topics our community cares deeply about: Animals, Science & Innovation, Culture & Exploration, Environment, and Travel. We want to create pathways for continuous discovery and to remind our readers that stories can change the world.
We also want to create ways to connect you with each other and with us. We want to give you ways to get involved. We invite you to join Your Shot, our community of aspiring photographers, where you can showcase your work and learn from our experts. We encourage you to follow along on expeditions in our Open Explorer community, where everyday explorers, scientists, researchers and academics are logging their projects, and to share your story with us in our Women of Impact community, our new Facebook group.
This is just the start. More than ever, our mission is not only to help people learn about the world, but to inspire everyone to participate. We’ll be continuing to improve our digital designs and community offerings and would love your input. Let us know what you think by emailing our digital editors at firstname.lastname@example.org.
