WorldAtlas Ownership, Funding, and Advertising Policy
WorldAtlas has been owned and operated by online publisher Reunion Technology Inc. in Montreal, Canada since February 2016. Previous to that, the site was owned by founder John Moen. Reunion Technology Inc. oversees operation of WorldAtlas across all platforms on which the brand appears: Google, Facebook, YouTube, and a host of other social media and news platforms. That said, Reunion Technology Inc. does not influence or otherwise dictate the opinions of the editorial teams nor interfere with site objectives, voice, or topic selection.
Programmatic advertising platforms fund the majority of website operations, editorial salaries, and content payouts; still, the WorldAtlas editorial staff, writers, and content team operate independent of the Reunion Technology Inc. Ad-Ops team. The two do not interact nor influence each other's work. Representation of all viewpoints, perspectives, and writers of all backgrounds are strongly encouraged by the senior editors - ensuring that objectivity and accuracy of our content is never restricted by any one writer, editor, partner, or business divisions.
Note: While we strive to provide readers with a great ad experience, advertisements may not necessarily reflect the views of WorldAtlas or Reunion Technology Inc.
