Discover News According To Your Preferred Interests: Prismatic

Discover News According To Your Preferred Interests: Prismatic | Content Curation World |

Robin Good: Prismatic is a news discovery tool allowing you to select and specify the "interests" and topics on which you want to be kept up-to-date.

Once configured Prismatic offers a well laid out web-based magazine format in which you can pick and look at any of your preferred news topics.

Prismatic automatically provides detailed information about each news story it will present you, including the number of times it has already been shared and the relevant tags associated to it.

Initially Prismatic connects to your main social networks (FB and Twitter) to learn about your interests and then gradually learns with your help what kind of content you are most interested in. 

Prismatic has two ways to discover new interests: search and links to related feeds. Search can find topic and publisher feeds or you can create a new feed from a query. Each story has links to related feeds, which you can follow to explore new interests.

Have you tried it? How is it different from ScoopIt?
Robin Good's comment, April 10, 2012 8:44 AM
Hello Otir, yes I have.

Nothing to do with This is good either to create a page where to see all of your preferred RSS feeds in a visual fashion, or to create out of your feeds a visual page that displays them all.

Thanks for your reply, Robin! I will look into it more in depth then! Seems really interesting... (so many new tools, so little time, though :-)

Visual News Discovery Gets Better: Flow Through Your Stream with the Bottlenose Sonar

Robin Good: The new Bottlenose makes it easier and more effective to ride the incoming news wave while suggesting and offering relevant content and new sources.

The new version of Bottlenose relesed yesterday is now capable of filtering "Twitter, Facebook, and RSS, creating a unified stream that puts those networks in one place."

"The goal, though, is not only aggregation, it’s about understanding what each message is about at a granular level so that it can build a robust profile about you and your interests to help you discover relevant information you might have missed, new friends, articles, and so on.

The cool thing about Bottlenose is that it gives you the opportunity to set sophisticated alerts and uses action-based rules to help you get on top of the noise, regardless of whether or not you’re actively engaged in the app or not.


The app is still in somewhat limited beta, but for those looking to get access (I recommend checking it out), head over to the homepage, sign up, create an account, and if you’re prompted, use “Getsonar” for the access code. Oh, and if you have a Klout score over 30, you’ll get in automatically."
