The Washington Post Launches Trove, A Personalized News Site | Business Wire | Brand & Content Curation |
Trove, a free personalized news aggregation site launched today.
The site takes advantage of Facebook Connect to pull in a user’s interests as outlined by his or her Facebook profile to help jump start personalization. In the coming months, readers can expect to see more social media features and site capabilities with Facebook Connect.
Beyond algorithms, an editorial team selects news of the day— “Editors’ Picks”—to feature on Trove. Trove’s editors also create subject-based channels that feature recommended sources. And users can create their own channels.
