Introducing FACT-ory by Quizefy

In addition to our constantly changing Quiz of the Day, today we’re introducing Trending Topics. Each week, on Tuesday, we will dive into a hot or trending topic.

Think #TrendingTuesday.

Trending topics experience surges in popularity for a limited duration of time. They are often associated with fashion, pop culture and entertainment, because they are short-lived, sometimes outrageous, and fun to talk about. There are, of course, many other types of trends, too - some serious, some informative, you never know what might pop up. We won’t know, ourselves, until a day or so ahead of time.

Trends differ from patterns, which repeat in a predictable manner. We will seize the unpredictable. The wow. The noticeable. The cool. The hot. The lit. And give you the facts so you can #StrutYourSmart.

We really wanted our first Trending Topic to be Alex Trebek. As a trivia app, I can’t think of anything that would be more appropriate. Alex was a trending topic this fall, when the iconic Jeopardy! quiz-man succumbed to pancreatic cancer after a 36 year run as the host of this incredibly successful and beloved trivia show. The man was also trendy with his 1970’s curly hair, sideburns and mustache.

@Jeopardy! is taking the next 2 weeks to honor Alex and will be airing his favorite episodes around the world. We decided to make Alex Trebek our first #TrendingTuesday Topic. Today you will find questions about Mr. Trebek to challenge any trivia buff, accompanied by interesting related blog content for those who want more meat around the bones. Look for our Alex Trebek blog in just a couple of hours!

Each Trending Topic will also have deeper narrative in the form of a blog, which we’ve aptly called FACT-ory by Quizefy. We couldn’t believe that this URL was available for $2.99 – what a score! Thank-you @GoDaddy!
