FeedHub, the Pittsburgh-based startup created by mSpoke, has just announced an update aimed at improving the relevancy of its personalized feed creator. I covered FeedHub when they launched back in September 2007, since then they have received a lot of user feedback which they used to plan and execute on this latest update.
The FeedHub update will tackle:
- Streamlining Feedback Interactions - They have added thumbs up / down buttons on every post to let you rate its relevance and launched a FeedHub Firefox extension.
- Relevancy Improvements - Now is leveraging Wikipedia for the taxonomy of its category memes, and a new meme that recommends posts with significantly more comments than are typical for other posts from that source - read Paul Ogilve's post for more details.
- Infrastructure / Scalability Enhancements - upgraded its Dojo toolkit to improve performance and position FeedHub for future front-end enhancements.
