We’re mapping the global mind in real-time. It’s a new way to tap into collective consciousness that literally lets you see what the world is thinking.

Bottlenose, the discovery engine for the social web, today entered public beta and launched a search portal to explore what is happening at any given moment around any topic.

The discovery engine, the first of its kind, scans the entire global consciousness in real-time to pinpoint trending news, pictures and links that are gaining buzz. Bottlenose’s discovery engine helps users discover and explore the freshest, most important information around topics, current events or brands. Bottlenose effectively does for social networks what Google did for the Web.

After a term is entered into the discovery bar Bottlenose goes out and pulls in all relevant content from Twitter, Facebook and Google+ and presents results in a three column synopsis called “Now” that gives users an immediate understanding of the most important current trends.

Bottlenose’s core technology is designed to measure the crowd to detect trends across major social networks. The result is a highly accurate view of what is happening and what’s trending right now about any topic in the world.

Users can also leverage several apps within the Bottlenose experience to sort and consume trending content in new ways. These apps include Now, Paper, Pictures, Scanner and Sonar; each providing a unique set of features that help users to better understand, track and engage with trending content and influencers.

“The messages flowing through social networks reflect what’s happening in the world. Bottlenose measures the crowd to provide a live view of what’s important,” said Nova Spivack, co-founder and CEO of Bottlenose. “We’re mapping the global mind in real-time. It’s a new way to tap into collective consciousness that literally lets you see what the world is thinking.”

If users want to save their searches and continue following their interests, they can create a Bottlenose account for free to use the Dashboard. Dashboard users get a personal start page where they can see what’s trending in their networks as opposed to the global network, providing an intimate view of what is happening around them. In the Dashboard they can track all their news and interests in one place.

“We had to develop entirely new technologies to make Bottlenose’s real-time discovery engine even possible. Bottlenose is entirely built in Javascript and HTML5 and leverages a patent-pending crowd computing architecture to achieve massive scale at amazing low costs,” said Dominiek ter Heide, CTO and co-founder, Bottlenose. “Bottlenose builds an interest graph for every person, topic and link mentioned in social media. It also uses proprietary analytics, natural language processing and trend detection algorithms to map the global brain at any point in time.”

Bottlenose helps consumers and professionals keep up with news, interests and events they care about. Brands and enterprises also employ Bottlenose to keep up with real-time conversation, and to gain strategic insights, for early detection of relevant trends around their interests.
