ReStream Update: Better Tagging, Recommendations, and Performance

Thursday, January 28th, 2010

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.

Changes:

  • 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

Twitter Filtering App, ReStream, Updated With New Recommendation System

Wednesday, November 18th, 2009

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 theĀ  “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.

Today, ReStream was updated to include Twitter list integration. The first phase of this integration displays Technology News from 4 of the most popular Twitter Tech lists. This will soon expand to other topics. Each list shows the most popular shared links from the previous 4, 8, 16, and 24 hours. We’ve also combined all of links into one grouping to give you an overview of what’s popular across all of the lists.

ReStream is currently in open beta.

Please comment below on what you think of these new features.

New Features:

  • New Home Page displays Tech News – The is the first integration of lists. More coming soon.

How ReStream Helps You Discover Popular Links in Your Twitter Stream

Wednesday, October 21st, 2009

ReStream helps you discover the most popular links shared by the people you follow.

ReStream is the first application to join our new Marketing for Mavens Lab. It was born from the problem that it’s impossible to keep up with your Twitter stream. Further, it’s even more difficult to see what popular information the people you follow are recommending.

The goal of ReStream is help you better manage your Twitter stream so you’re not missing the valuable information being shared. With ReStream, we’re collecting the links shared by the people you follow in real-time. The links are then displayed to you along with the people and comments associated with the them. Now you can see what information is trending and quickly respond and become part of the conversation.
