Knoxville, TN (PRWEB) June 29, 2011
Kyoo Channels launched today as the first aggregation system built to serve large-scale information consumption of social media and other online content. Built on the Kyoo Aggregation Platform, this innovative, free website enables users to easily follow and interact with the online buzz surrounding popular trends and hot topics – from viral to political – as they happen, all from a single webpage.
“No one can deny that there has been surge in audiences using social media sources like Twitter and Facebook to get the latest news and follow trends as they happen,” said Josh Phillips, president of Kyoo. “The problem is that with this proliferation of social media and news content online, it’s often hard to cut through the clutter when you’re looking to follow a particular topic or trend. That’s where Kyoo Channels comes in.”
Designed to revolutionize the way news is consumed, Kyoo.com is a constantly updated content aggregation website that dynamically displays social content, images and videos surrounding a variety of topics, each on an easy-to-use visual dashboard. Kyoo Channels offers an interconnected network of channels, each displaying the online buzz surrounding a specific topic – from Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, YouTube, social bookmarking websites, major news sources and blogs.
“Each Kyoo Channel provides a unique, integrated experience that brings all of the buzz surrounding a topic, across all major social networks and news sources, into one modular webpage,” said Phillips. “No matter what your interests, Kyoo Channels has something for you.”
Current Kyoo Channels include US News, World News, Entertainment, Politics, Health, Sports, Business, Science & Technology, Lifestyle and What’s Viral. Within these channels are over 150 unique “Kyoos” currently available at launch, a number that will explode into the thousands in the near future. Specific Kyoos within these channels span a variety of topics and include the Casey Anthony trial, Barack Obama, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber and the viral sensation Pottermore.
Kyoo’s intelligent relationship engine connects related channels and enables users to move through channels they’re likely interested in, creating a multi-tiered, interactive browsing experience.
By utilizing a variety of social media application programming interfaces (APIs), Kyoo was custom-developed to visualize the following:
- Twitter and Facebook feeds based on keywords
- Twitter heat map displaying tweet density based on keywords
- Relevant socially bookmarked articles based on keywords
- Articles and blog posts from Google based on keywords
- Flickr and YouTube content based on specific keywords and accounts
- Feed of chosen Facebook and Twitter accounts based on username
- Timeline of trending topics, displayed as a tag cloud and based on keywords
- Related Kyoos per Kyoo’s relationship engine
Kyoo also encourages user feedback through its integration of a behavior-driven rating system and new Kyoo submission system, thus ensuring topics covered within the Kyoo Channels network stay user-focused and relevant.
