FAQs
  • 1. What is a community?

    An Odyssey community is a group of like-minded individuals who ideate and create content and thoughtful discussion in a group setting. Odyssey communities are either geographic or interest-based and a contributor can be a part of multiple communities. Communities are open for anyone to join and anyone is able to start a new community.

  • 2. What can/can't you write about?

    You are free to create content about the topics you care about. However, we do not allow users to post content that is blatantly false with the intent to mislead readers, content that harasses other users or individuals off-platform, or is meant to exclude, discriminate, intimidate, or call violence upon groups or individuals. Visit our Rules page for more information.

  • 3. How does Odyssey choose what content they amplify?

    Odyssey selects its featured content in two major ways. Content is amplified based on the engagement it earns, usually from a Creator’s own personal network. Odyssey also actively searches for the most relevant, quality content as it surfaces in real time.

  • 4. How do I get paid, how do I make money?

    Creators who have completed the sign-up process are eligible for Odyssey’s revenue share program. If your content creates enough engagement, a percentage of the revenue it generates will be paid to you.

  • 5. How do I get the most out of my time on Odyssey?

    Odyssey is a platform for your voice and ideas, a place to talk about the things that matter to and interest you most. Everybody has a different reason for coming to Odyssey. If you want to go viral, we know what makes that happen. If you want to talk about your favorite — or least favorite — TV shows and movies, we’re a community where that happens. If you want to learn how content moves through the internet, on social media or search engine algorithms, we can teach you how that happens.
