A few days ago, Findory started personalizing the recent articles on our source pages.
For example, when I go to Wired magazine on Findory, because of my reading history, two articles are marked as personalized, "Troops stay in touch on the internet" and "Yahoo searches desktops too". When I go to Scobleizer on Findory, four articles are highlighted for me.
The problem with current web feed readers is that they don't solve the information overload problem. Sure, I can pick and choose which RSS feeds I subscribe to. But, once you have tens of subscribed feeds, reading them becomes this cumbersome process. Click on a feed, skim the articles. Anything interesting in that one? No. Click, skim. Click, skim. Click, skim. Ugh.
With Findory, the important news bubbles to the top. On the home page, interesting articles are selected just for you, pulled from thousands of news and blogs. On a search, relevant articles are highlighted. When you read a blog on Findory, important posts are highlighted.
Current RSS readers merely reformat XML for display. That isn't enough. They need to filter and prioritize. Show me what matters. Help me find what I need. Next-generation RSS readers will be personalized.
This is about more than just reading news. This is about information. Where before there was an undifferentiated glut of information, now there is focus. Where before there was noise, now there is knowledge.
What will this future look like? Findory has taken the first steps. Come and take a look.
