Social Trendcasting Archive
Content sharing and bookmarking service Shareaholic has announced the launch of the Shareaholic Buzz Monitor today. Through a new formalized partnership with OneRiot, Shareaholic users can now monitor real-time trending topics on OneRiot and Twitter.
Shareaholic is also using their own proprietary data within the real-time results. The topics cover news, videos and blogs. What’s interesting with today’s announcement is that users can also share the interesting trending topics on any of the 60+ services that Shareaholic supports which includes Digg, Facebook, Blogger, LinkedIn, ping.fm, etc.
Mozilla reports over 1 million activations and the service works with Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Flock, Safari and Songbird.
Edopter presented at the NY Tech gathering this evening. Edopter is "social trendcasting" and they basically track trends using crowdsourcing and their data model. They reward users with points (blah) that can be redeemed for apparently a great pair of sneakers. I am not sure why sites that are marketing towards the tech and early adopter crowd continue to think point-systems will work. It’s a pretty interesting system and I plan to get a longer demo and interview with the Edopter team in the next few weeks.
