San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 11, 2012
Floost, the new content discovery platform for accessing and sharing personally relevant content and media from across the web, debuts at TechCrunch Disrupt in San Francisco today. Floost does what news and content aggregators have not, by presenting news, photos, videos and blog content around personal interests in a visual, board-based interface. Floost launched its online site this spring and has amassed a following of more than 17,000 Facebook fans for its Photography@Floost channel. Floost is online in beta today with mobile apps launching later this year.
WHAT: http://www.floost.com. New content discovery platform where people view and share content based around the topics and keywords of interest to them, such as news topics, industries, sports teams, cities, celebrities, hobbies, etc.
WHERE: TechCrunch Disrupt SF 2012, San Francisco Design Center Concourse
635 Eighth Street
WHEN: Tuesday, September 11, 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
HOW: Go to http://www.floost.com, create a profile, select your interests, add keywords to follow, then read, share, favorite and repost. Share your feedback with the team!
“Technology has made it possible for us to stay incredibly connected and informed about any topic, but the process of sharing and accessing truly relevant content and media has been messy and cumbersome,” said Siddharth Goyal, CEO and chief architect of Floost. “Disrupt is a great venue for us to debut the platform with tech- and social-savvy individuals. We’re anxious to hear feedback and questions that will support us in enhancing the site, and look to our great community to contribute to the process.”
Floost is the first social content discovery platform that aligns content around people’s individual interests. Content creators can extend their blogs, photos, video or news across the Floost network and in front of people with specific interest in their material. At the same time, individuals can consume content in a far more personal manner, with boards arranged around specific keywords and topics of interest. The visual, board-based interface makes it easy to view, organize, favorite and share content across the Floost network. Set up a profile and begin using Floost today at http://www.floost.com.
