Boulder, Colo. and San Francisco -- OneRiot, the social search engine that finds the pulse of the web, today launched the alpha version of OneRiot Pulse Feeds - a new feature that enables anyone to track the most popular news and videos for any topic.
"We developed Pulse Feeds as an easy way for anyone to cut through the deluge of chatter on the internet and quickly find the news and videos that are important to real people, right now," said Kimbal Musk, CEO at OneRiot.
With OneRiot Pulse Feeds, users can now keep on top of emerging dramas with Octomom, Rihanna and Chris Brown or simply stay plugged into the latest buzz on celebrities like Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie.
Unlike other alert systems or traditional newsfeeds, OneRiot Pulse Feeds display the hottest news and videos from across the web, based on their current popularity with OneRiot's two million-strong community. This makes Pulse Feeds socially-relevant and bubbling with the real-time energy of the web.
Pulse Feeds are available for free as RSS (Really Simple Syndication), MyYahoo widgets, iGoogle gadgets and more, and can be easily accessed from the OneRiot search results page for a chosen topic (see the growing list here). OneRiot Pulse Feeds also include "Pulse History" - a history of the news and videos that people have been talking about over time. For example, the Pulse Feed for Barack Obama shows the most socially relevant news and video results since he was elected. Laid out in a handy day-by-day sequence, this Pulse Feed makes it easy to view legislation news, polls, speeches and other socially significant developments surrounding the President.
"We're looking forward to getting feedback with this alpha release," said Tobias Peggs, VP and General Manager of OneRiot. "Our search engine finds the pulse of the web in real-time. Now users can track it via RSS too."
Launched in November 2008, OneRiot is a social search engine that that finds the pulse of the web. Thanks to the constant help of more than two million users, OneRiot makes it easy for anyone to find the news, and videos that people are talking about right now.
