Today we added a new read later feature to Restream. If you’re browsing through the headlines and you spot something you like but don’t have time to read it, simply click on the read later button (below each post) and save it to read at a later time. To access your read later page, click on the read later link located under your name in the navigation. Enjoy!

Over the past week I’ve made several updates to ReStream.me.
One of these updates caused some tagging issues. You may notice some links have several unrelated tags. Please ignore this for now. It will be flushed from the system over the next 24 hours.
- More links now have tags associated with them.
- The home page was simplified to help new visitors to better understand the value of ReStream
- You can mark links as read on your recommended reading page. This is only used to give you access to more recommended content as we only display the top 15 links. Soon you will be able to mark a link as like/unlike to further improve ReStream recommendations.
- User pages – displayed when you click on a persons image – now show the top tags related to this person. We’ll be using this information in a future update to recommend people you should follow.
- Performance Updates: I’ve made better use of caching while still giving you a real-time look at the data. Several database queries have also been reconfigured to speed up
ReStream has received several updates since it became available in the Marketing for Mavens Lab a few weeks ago. Today’s update is the biggest since that launch. A new recommendation system based on Web Maven has been added. To take advantage of this new feature, go to your profile page and add the keywords (tags) that interest you. Based on these tags we’ll recommend content to you on the “your stream” page.
The new recommendation system is in beta and we have several new features that will be integrated over the next few weeks to provide better recommendations and more content of interest. I am very excited by these new features and can’t wait to show them off.
There are also a couple of other features that are part of this update.
- Two more news topics were to the home page for Marketing and Sports.
- A larger number of lists have been integrated into our content results
- Several bug fixes where made to improve retweets, page load times, and backend performance.
An update was made to ReStream this afternoon with the following changes:
- Added the ability to retweet any comment from the groupings of links.
- Fixed the favorite button so that it works correctly now
- Added “time since post” for each comment
- Fixed bug that made random comments appear in your timeline
