When we first started in 2009 there weren’t too many places to read about new ideas and startup, but there were quite a few blogs that were sharing “cool things”. And today consuming content on the internet has gotten increasingly harder with the large number of writers and sites offering unique or not-so-unique viewpoints. While finding the news your most interested in is work in itself.
Right now our Facebook, Twitter and news feeds are overrun with content that we all don’t necessarily read, and weakens us to find the content we’re eager to digest. That’s why we spend countless hours curating our Network feed with articles we hand-pick and believe gives you (our readers – that we love so much) the most pertinent information so you don’t have to filter yourself. Scoops goes even further by not asking where you find interesting content providers, rather it shows you interesting content providers based on your interests.
Scoops gets the right content to the right people. It is personalized news feed aggregation – or basically a 2012 reinterpretation of an RSS Reader. You tell them what you like and on what sources you want to stay informed about, and they will not just deliver new articles to you in one inbox, but also sort them after personal relevance and fulfill it with suitable recommendations.
“We do that by analyzing what you read and by asking you what you like, whether it is a broad interest, a specific topic or a website. We provide notifications to content you subscribed to and supplement it with suggestions we believe are of relevance to you. Additionally, we order everything from most to least relevant and provide related content to every notification. It’s not just text based, but features video, pictures and music too.”
Once you tell Scoops your interests, the platform looks for feeds to meet your interests and provides a comprehensive list of articles that you can browse quickly. Every article, video and presentation you see is called a Notif and all Notifs together make up your Notif-Inbox. When you click on an article of interest, you’re given a summary, suggest related articles, category breakdowns and a link to the entire article for further reading.
Scoops goes beyond delivering content it says “Welcome to the curated web.”
