    the dictionary of everything.. perusen is a platform where you use definitions and descriptions about anything you want. here, using our words, we describe phrases, or discussions from books, events, relationships, politics, people, the arts and sciences. the format is intended to represent the current culture.

    why did we choose "perusen" as a name?

    middle english: perusen, to use up : latin per-, per- + middle english usen, to use.

    peruse: to read over in an attentive or leisurely manner.
    perusers: the users of and also readers of
    perusal: the act of perusing.
    perusable: adj.

    pros: phonetically simple, easy to remember, conveys the aim of the website.
    "hey i read this in perusen"
    "are you a peruser as well?"
    "yesterday i was perusen(perusing in casual conversation), and i found out this"

    what is the difference of perusen from other social media?

    reddit is closest to our website in terms of content. however reddit is very disorganized and the majority of comments are junk such as, one line responds, personal fruitless discussions, and forum style language. in perusen having a title, the first rule for comments is to belong the title but only title. this will hopefully limit one to one discussions to point wise discussions. the second criticism about reddit is that it has repetitive titles. you can encounter the replica of the same titles every other week if you are a frequent user. the third criticism about reddit is that the discussions happen about only the first few pages of reddit. there is no incentive to add a comment to last week's topics because your comment will be lost over there. therefore reddit is not an accumulated source of information.

    urbandictionary is similar to our idea as well. however their content is limited more or less to only words and phrases. in this regard perusen is an extended version of urbandictionary.

    wikipedia is a great source of information. we are not similar to wikipedia in terms of content but we both have inside links and a huge connection between topics. it is very formal, and it cannot even be regarded as a social media. it doesn't taste like a reddit stuff.

    if you like, you can simply view perusen as a mixture of urbandictionary, reddit and wiki. from everyone little little, in the middle*.

    a place intended to bring what everyone else has to say about a word or a topic, start your own thread or write your understanding / opinion on an existing one. simply find something you have been wondering about.

    it will most likely to be a place where teens talk about celebrities, and or let out their sexual frustrations, troll their all *iest opinions, and whine about things they know shit about.

    the platform that many turkish internet users have thought of, but never took action to actually build it, my new pastime.

    another saved territory, hopefully.

    i think turkish site is the first dictionary of this type which was built early in 1999 and perusen cloned it so so late.i wish them luck!

    a platform where you have no freedom of expression.

    a dictionary that should focus to be original, more than being merely translation of ek$isozluk.

    a very young but promising project which will evolve into something that probably will surprise all of perusers including the initiators.

    (see: i believe in evolution)

    the goal is not to clone any idea, instead, is to let it go to its equilibrium point which is determined by overall physical forces on it. our intention is to create a meaningful place that we can learn, have fun, and also enjoy others. there will be always cheap people who can make cheap labels. this is how they enjoy here and they are welcomed as well.
