Crowdsourced Kyoo Turns Social Media Buzz Into 24-Hour News Channels That Companies Can Curate

Crowdsourced Kyoo Turns Social Media Buzz Into 24-Hour News Channels That Companies Can Curate | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

Announced today, Kyoo is a social media aggregator that intelligently finds, indexes and displays social content on any topic.

 

The business versions of Kyoo allows organizations to aggregate and display content on their own sites, with moderation tools, in a similar fashion.

 

It features hot topics bubbling up in U.S. News, World News, Business, Science & Tech, Entertainment, Politics, Sports, What’s Viral and Lifestyle sections.

 

You can browse sections or search for topics of interest.

 

Each topic page is an amalgamation of topic-related tweets, public Facebook status updates, YouTube videos, Flickr photos, Delicious bookmarks, and top news stories from Digg and Reddit.

 

With a broad spectrum of channels, Kyoo provides a real-time, contextual glimpse at what’s happening in the world based on the updates pouring in from social media sites, making it akin to a crowdsourced 24-hour news network.

 

Kyoo is free to use for consumers, though it does offer a separate business product for companies that starts at $349 per month.

YouTube Founders Aim to Revamp Delicious

YouTube Founders Aim to Revamp Delicious | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it
The revamp of Delicious involves an overhaul of the site’s design and the software and the systems used to tag and organize links.

 

SAN MATEO, Calif. — Chad Hurley and Steve Chen have some experience with turning a small Web site into Internet gold. In 2006 they sold their scrappy start-up YouTube to Google for $1.65 billion.

 

The Delicious office in San Mateo, Calif. It now has around 15 employees, mostly engineers.

 

More recently they picked an unlikely candidate to be their next Web sensation: a Yahoo castoff.

 

The men are trying to inject new life into Delicious, a social bookmarking service that, in its time, was popular among the technorati, but failed to catch on with a broader audience.

 

“What we plan to do,” Mr. Hurley said in an interview here last week, “is try to introduce Delicious to the rest of the world.”
