How Google Is Going To Auto-Curate Your Shopping Experience with Integrated Buyer's Guides

How Google Is Going To Auto-Curate Your Shopping Experience with Integrated Buyer's Guides | Content Curation World | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Google may soon release a new online shopping experience interface, which has been designed to make it easier for the prospective buyer to find what he is looking for eve when there are tens of similar or equivalent products.


From the original article: "Today, we discovered that Google has one keyword live that exhibits the complete new user experience for Google Shopping, powered by Product Listing Ads (PLA).


"This is very interesting.


Instead of the usual presentation where you immediately see products, we are given a complete integrated buyer's guide for tents.


Step one of that buyer's guide is picking the type of tent - camping, backpacking, beach, canopy, mountaineering or ice-fishing (who knew?!).


When the user clicks on one of these 'types' of tents they are taken to step two of the experience..."


Also of interest the fact that Google doesn't just aggregate available data, but it also provides user-definable controls and filters to help the prospective buyer find more easily what he wants through a type of "guided-shopping" approach.


Very interesting. Illustrated. 8/10

Create Topic Specific News Channels By Picking Your Favorite Twitter and FB Sources: NewsMix | Content Curation World | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Similar to Paper.li, NewsMix.me allows anyone to easily create one or more news channels which automatically aggregate news and posts by your selected sources on Twitter (including "lists"), and Facebook.

You simply add the Twitter and FB accounts that you want to aggregate in a channel and your news channel is immediately created.

The look and feel of the final output is made up of a series of vertical blocks that showcase the tweet or FB content of each post and its related image.


P.S.: Unfortunately, rarely a Twitter stream or FB page is ever posting constantly on the same topic, making the aggregated result not as useful as it could be by allowing any source to be filtered for specific keywords.


Interesting. 7/10
