ROCKZi Is Blekko’s New Social Content Curation Site: Hybrid Between Pinterest And Flipboard

ROCKZi Is Blekko’s New Social Content Curation Site: Hybrid Between Pinterest And Flipboard | Coolshax | Scoop.it

Robin Good: ROCKZi is a new social news discovery and sharing service launched by the human curated search engine Blekko.

 

The service intelligently leverages the great work done by its own human curators to generate a thematic news board that is an hybrid between the experience of Pinterest and the one of Flipboard.

 

From GigaOM: "...taking a cue from from other popular curation sites, ROCKzi was built to bring curation to a wider set of users through low-touch, passive curation tools.

 

The site surfaces fresh content from news sources curated by power blekko users and displays articles in topic-specific, searchable “news boards,” from “Geekery” and “Glitterati” to “SportZ” and “Red State.”

 

As of now, there are 33 boards but, over the next few weeks and months, it plans to expand to hundreds and then thousands more."

N.B.: Not only you can browse and discover news through the existing boards, but if you scroll below them, you will find a search box that allows you to dive and find news on ANY topic you want.
