Automatically Detecting Your Level of Compassion With a Click of a Button

"Pssst......You get one (1) "Vote" click, so make it count!"

 This Story Is At Compassion Level...

"Your result will show for five (5) seconds and then to collective results"


Our team developed a unique feature – The Compassion Gauge Tool.  Its function is to offer our visitors the option to measure the level of compassion of each subject presented.

The objective is simple: to gauge uplifting stories and see how we all feel about them.  As more participants gauge a story, the more we learn how effective it is in evoking a state of compassion. The process of detecting levels of human consciousness is not new; it has been around for a few years now.

The Compassion Gauge Tool was designed with similar objectives in mind and with the added introduction of the scaling standard: Our Goals

  1. Provide a user-friendly method for visitors to enable the App’s technology for each post (can be a story, picture, audio and or video)
  2. Measure the state-of-compassion each user is feeling towards the subject presented.
  3. Deliver a gauge level on the scale from one (1) to ten (10). Ten being the most compassionate level.

THE TEN LEVELS OF COMPASSION By delivering results based on a scale from 1 to 10, we help define levels of compassion. The Compassion Gauge Tool automatically detects the level of compassion in each submission and applies it to a pool of data that essentially produces a scale in relation to the number of submissions. Here are the ten levels starting with a “zero” then one (1) through ten (10). the-ten-stages-900 Every post starts at “zero” and once enough submissions have been accumulated it will potentially progress higher.

I want to participate, what do I need to do? It is very simple, pick one of the stories we have on GollyGoose and when you finish reading or viewing its contents, press the “Vote” button placed at the bottom of the post.

That’s it. The rest is being taken care of by our Compassion Detection System.

At each post you can “Vote” once, so make it count.

For more accurate results we ask that you place your “Vote” submission promptly, do not wait for a later time unless you plan on viewing/reading the entire story again.
