TigerLogic Launches A Real-Time Facebook Newspaper
WebProNews spoke with Bobby Bonaparte, the Product Manager of PostPost, about TigerLogic’s launch of its social newspaper for Facebook.
The idea for PostPost “Was born from born from a simple observation – our friends are better at sharing content that is interesting and relevant than traditional news aggregators,” said Bonaparte.
“We wanted the ability to collect, categorize, and consume the actual news out of our Facebook newsfeeds in one place. Moreover, we wanted the ability to quickly skim relevant articles and see more of why it was shared in the first place with out having to click through, and without having to engage with the rest of Facebook.”
“Facebook’s newsfeed is geared more towards helping you learn more about your friends and PostPost seeks to help you learn more from your friends. So much content that our friends are sharing gets lost through the Facebook Stream, and PostPost is a more intuitive way of consuming that content — content that is relevant.”
When asked about similar service for Twitter, Bonaparte said, “We are open to user feedback. We like to work in close collaboration with users to try to improve our products. We think Twitter feeds would be an excellent addition to V.2 .”
Data management firm TigerLogic has introduced PostPost, a real-time personal social newspaper that collects and curates posts shared by a user’s Facebook friends into a newspaper style layout.
To access PostPost, users can login in using Facebook Connect, and all shared links, pictures, videos, articles from their Facebook friends will be displayed on the front page of their personal paper.
PostPost is integrated with TigerLogic’s yolink search-enhancing technology to help readers search PostPost’s real-time content and return actionable search results with key terms in context.
"PostPost delivers a lot of information from a myriad of sources and yolink search is the best way to actually search through it all and reveal what hides behind the hundreds of links,” said Brian Cheek, Director of Business Development at TigerLogic.
PostPost is available for free and over the next few months, the TigerLogic PostPost team will add new features to the service.
