The Fact Site is the number one source for the most interesting and random facts. Every week we provide fun facts about animals, celebrities, food, films, games, health, space & more. You will learn something about everything!
We aim to be the best source of fun facts on the internet, as well as the most reliable site to find facts. At The Fact Site, we confirm our content via multiple sources to aim for the most accurate information we can find. We also regularly check older facts and update them when newer information is available.
We hand-pick the most interesting facts about each topic covered on The Fact Site. Our mission is to be as useful as Wikipedia, but in a more fun and easy to read way.
The Fact Site started back in 2009, originally as Funky-Facts. This was our first-born and has been the backbone behind The Fact Network.
In 2012, we switched from Google’s Blogger platform to WordPress, and changed our name to The Fact Site. This was our first major step in the right direction. With this change came a clearer focus, a better brand name and a superior website.
In 2013, we searched for freelance writers who had an interest in facts, and could provide a fresh feel to the content provided at The Fact Site. Since then, we’ve had over 15 freelance writers provide us with facts about subjects they’re interested in.
In 2015, we re-branded The Fact Site with a new color scheme, a new logo and new expansion, The Fact Shop.
