There is surely no dearth of content out there on the web, but for many of us, that can actually got a problem. Twitter is great for real-time information, and Facebook is great for watching what your friends are sharing, and newsfeeds like Flipboard are awesome at pulling together content based on your interests.
But Mix, the most recent project out of Expa, and is presided over by Garrett Camp, is looking forward to filter down content and had contributed to you the things youre most likely to care about.
This is done by recommending content based on a semantic graph and a social diagram. In other oaths, your Mix.com feed is based on what you like and who you know, rather than touching you with one, or the other, or cracking story, or all of the above in a single chronological feed.
Camp, who is the founder of business like Uber and, previously, StumbleUpon, said that he has devoted his life house produces that he actually requires in his life.
I havent been able to get the signal-to-noise ratio that Id like on any of these other stages, answered Camp. If I want to see cool nonsense related to architecture or funk music, I dont want to have to sought for it, and these dwelling pulpits dont satisfy my want. After 20 instants gazing through a newsfeed I might have found some cool material, but its a needle in a haystack. I only really like a small fraction of it.
In part, Mix piggybacks off of what was learned from StumbleUpon, which is now an owned subsidiary of Mix. Camp explained that StumbleUpon was improved specifically for consumption, and that only a small number of users were actually dedicating feedback on that content, let alone contributing material to the platform.
The hope is to get a better balance between uptake and curation from each consumer on Mix.
After on-boarding with either Twitter or Facebook( in a few daylights, you should be able to sign in with both ), customers are asked to choose at the least five interests. From there, useds are asked to select people that they know or want to follow on Mix.
