RebelMouse has a unique and ever-growing advantage through the mix of technology we've built, the amount of sites we power, and the relationships we have with our clients. We built off the founding team's knowledge — from their experience of building HuffPost — to create something truly exciting. Two of the most exciting new media breakout hits — The Dodo and Axios — were built by RebelMouse when they were just ideas. The Dodo now has their claim to fame with one of the most popular videos on Facebook ever , and every month brings in billions of Facebook views. Axios, launched only in January of this year, has become a traffic monster — racking up 80M+ page views a month. Now we've taken on Odyssey Online , and have grown it by 4M new users in the first 45 days alone.
At the same time, workers' councils , known in Russian as " Soviets ", sprang up across the country. The Bolsheviks , led by Vladimir Lenin , pushed for socialist revolution in the Soviets and on the streets. On 7 November 1917, the Red Guards stormed the Winter Palace in Petrograd, ending the rule of the Provisional Government and leaving all political power to the Soviets. This event would later be known as the Great October Socialist Revolution . In December, the Bolsheviks signed an armistice with the Central Powers , though by February 1918, fighting had resumed. In March, the Soviets ended involvement in the war for good and signed the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk .
