Global Grind is a community based website allowing people to discover and share content from anywhere on the web, by linking to, voting for, and commenting on each others content, in a social and democratic way. To view the content in full global grind links to the website that published the story, therefore driving traffic to that website and creating a larger market for sites that publish their own news stories, photos, and videos.
Voting submitted content up and down is the cornerstone function of the website, and is respectively referred to as grinding and trashing.
