I probably won’t be updating Tumblr much over the course of the week, so either follow me on Twitter or, at least, please don’t unfollow me on Tumblr while I’m away!
I love you all, will be back online soon.

Upworthy’s mission is to use social media to draw attention to things that matter — we make important issues go as viral as a video of some idiot surfing off his roof. We’re growing super fast: By some measures, we’re one of the fastest-growing media sites in history, reaching more than 4 million monthly unique visitors by our sixth month online. You can read more on our mission here, and check out this article on our first 100 days from The New York Times’s David Carr.
One of the many ways in which we enact this mission is by having a strong, data-driven social media presence, managed by our Audience Development team. Though we have focused primarily on Facebook up to this point, we will be developing our Tumblr and Twitter presence in the near future. We are looking for a passionate social media user who wants to help millions of people see meaningful content to be our fearless intern as we continue to grow rapidly.
The Audience Development/Social Media intern will be responsible for working with the Community Manager to maintain and update all social media channels, as well as developing new strategies for distribution and user engagement. You must be very comfortable with Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Instagram. Your job might include: scheduling daily content posts, moderating comment streams, brainstorming new ways to engage users with the website and with the channels themselves, testing out new strategies, helping to develop the Upworthy voice, and collecting data. You’ll work directly with Upworthy’s leaders and get the inside scoop about our work on virality.
