Barcelona based startup, Groupiest, has officially launched on April 10 2013. The team has been overwhelmed with feedback and comments received on the design of the website, the functionality of the tool as well as color scheming since it has been in public beta and has taken the time to integrate some of the suggestions into the tool.

“Hate that purple,” was one of the comments Groupiest received from a user who tried using the tool while it was still in development. Groupiest listened and adapted.

“It starts out looking kind of ugly and empty which means it will be a lot of work to create.” Groupiest followed-up with the user, listened and adapted.

“The website has too much going on and is not very clear.” Groupiest listened and adapted.

Groupiest is a tool that allows passionate users to build their own community of interest through content posting and re-publishing. It is an easy-to-use one-stop-shop tool where users pick a topic, select related keywords and the platform streamlines all the related content from the web for the user. The community owner can then wish to ‘curate’ or simply edit the content and publish it on their community. This sort of a tool brings like minded individuals together, easily allows users to gain web presence differentiating them from the myriad of content available on the web and does not require much time, effort and knowledge that are needed to maintain a personal blog.

Groupiest CEO, Aakriti Gupta, acknowledges that little did she know about content curation before she got on board and started to explore the business opportunity. She says, “The web now has so much information that there is a need to better funnel the content down to what is really relevant to you and enhance interaction by linking people together. Basically there are three things that one should be aware of: you can’t be a Pro in everything, you can build credibility by citing other reputable content around the web and curation makes it possible to have a mix of content types.”

What’s special about Groupiest is that it allows the curator to set-up a platform for discussion boards and forums making it a social network. For example, a History teacher at a middle school could use Groupiest to share news, articles, images and videos on US History with her 8th Grade class and set-up forums and discussion boards for her students to comment and discuss on certain topics.This not only connects people together from opposite sides of the world but also opens a myriad of debate, opinions and suggestions for the curator.

Changes you can expect between Groupiest in public beta and Groupiest today:

  • A new and improved website with a clear message and descriptions of benefits from creating your own community.
  • User friendly and more intuitive structure of both the backend and frontend look and feel of the tool.
  • Added features integrated via collaborations with reputed partner companies.

It’s free of charge, give it a shot. Visit http://groupiest.com/
