Curation Service Finds The Best Of Twitter Amidst The Noise
Nuzzel is a web platform that provides a recap of social media feeds as well as packaging top stories for you.
While social media is a great way to stay connected to all that’s going on in the world, especially via Twitter or Facebook, how can you find what’s important among the inside jokes, conversations, and the hashtag overuse? A web service called Nuzzel could help filter out your social media noise to find the buzz-worthy content.
From the creator of Friendster, Nuzzel digs through your Twitter or Facebook feed to find the news pieces that your friends and followers are sharing. It then creates a recap to show you all the big news pieces and links that were shared that day.
One of the issues with the service is that it doesn’t provide a lot of context or conversation, only the popular links themselves, nor will it show you trending posts from people you don’t follow. This essentially means that depending on what interest you or those you follow have, you may still miss out on some big news or trend.
The service, which opened in beta on March 18th, is currently ad-free and free of charge, though founder Jonathan Abrams said that sometime in the future there may be sponsored stories, like on the social networks it scours. Nuzzel will also soon be coming out with an iPhone app so you can receive reports while on the go.
