Robocast Inc. released a major update to Robocast Social(sm) - an automated player for social media feeds from Reddit, Twitter and Instagram, such as timelines, photo albums, trending news or comedy. Now, without even signing in or creating an account, anyone can use Robocast’s patented Play Technology at http://www.robocast.com/social to turn the normally click- or scroll-heavy task of browsing social media into an interactive multimedia playlist.
For example, any Robocast user now has the ability to play Twitter or Instagram posts by clicking on a hashtag or username or putting in a search term – no sign-in or account required. With one click, the user will see not only all the posts related to that search, but Robocast will automatically open most content (pictures, videos, websites) associated with each post.

Logged in users of robocast.com that have linked their Twitter and Instagram accounts now have the ability not only to play their own personalized feeds, but to fully interact by commenting, marking favorites, following/unfollowing, etc.

With one click on the name of a popular Subreddit (a thread on reddit.com, the 10th most visited site in the U.S.) users will be presented with a show including content from that thread sequentially. Without Robocast, a user would have to click once to view an image and then again to go back to the list, and then repeat that process for each and every image. A Robocast user can see hundreds of posts with a single click at any pace.

Torres, inventor of the Automated Browsing System ("ABS") for the Net. "Some of us have worked on this project for over 20 years now, and we are so glad that it is proving to be useful in so many ways to many people. We look forward to sharing stories about how others are using Robocast."
