Talk About The World’s Most Fascinating Unfolding Stories

Raftr is a place for people to talk about the unfolding news, sports, and entertainment stories they follow with others who share their passions. Download the app and join our community!

Raftr’s mission is to host the same engaging conversations that happen at work around the water-cooler or at home in our family rooms, but on an online world stage.

A group of otters linked together is called a “raft”. Sea otters are very social animals that often eat, rest, & sleep together while floating in these rafts. Rafts can include hundreds of otters connected with one another by holding hands. We see this as a metaphor for the "water-cooler" conversations around the world discussing common interests.
