Trove – Personalized News Service

May 05, 2011

Trove – Personalized News Service
http://trove.com/

Trove is a new digital news experience from The Washington Post that gives you easy access to the information you care about. Trove harnesses smart, flexible technology that learns from the choices you make. Some have called it “Pandora for news,” and the serendipity in its suggestions, pulled from around 10,000 sources, makes Trove a powerful tool for information discovery. But it’s not just algorithms that drive Trove. Their editors are constantly working to inject the latest news onto the site’s home page and into channels of information that users can choose to follow. Meanwhile, their crew of engineers keeps Trove in a state of perpetual evolution. As a Trove user, you’ll have the power to create your own channels, which you can use to follow the people, places, things, and information sources that catch your eye. Starting up your Trove experience is easy; the site uses Facebook Connect to deliver to many users a slate of channels based on their already defined interests. And Trove is, by its nature, a social experience: you can share your channels with your friends, engage with fellow site users using the conversation boards featured on every channel, and interact with Trove on Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr. And you can take Trove with you on your Android or BlackBerry device (iPhone and iPad apps are coming soon).
