About Us

Viral Tab is a company that is part of the Fourth Estate Alliance, a UK based NGO that operates a project aimed at supporting the work of freelance journalists by providing editorial and software services.

The Fourth Estate Alliance helps freelancers to work together, forming small agencies to offer a more professional and closer working relationships with media partners.

Viral Tab is a news portal created for freelance journalists to showcase their work when it is published elsewhere – and at the same time to provide them with news about the industry.

All of the unpublished reports which are provided by journalists which were not published elsewhere are published in colour, and our industry news for freelance journalists is published in black-and-white.

This new site makes no judgement on the subjects covered by freelance journalists that choose to exhibit their work here, as long as they are independently chosen news items and not PR, native advertising, or in any other way stories which have a hidden agenda.

All of the stories in colour are available for purchase or follow-up, and you simply need to write to us on the contact form including a link to the story, and the freelance contributor concerned will get in touch.

Any stories that are sold are removed from our site and the new location where they are published is then embedded into our network, meaning all views will go to the new partner.

If you are a professional freelance journalist that wants to become part of our network or if you simply want to make a submission, please write to us using the contact form.
