Wow. I have been part of the alpha trial of socialmedian for a while. Today they moved to Beta.

Today Robert Scoble followed me on socialmedian. Cool!

Here is my spyjournal socialmedian news site, and here is Roberts.


socialmedianSo what is socialmedian?

socialmedian is social news network that connects people with personalized news and information. socialmedian enables you to easily keep up-to-date on the news that matters to you and to people who share your interests. (from the FAQ)

Basically you can create news streams of relevant information to a news topic or category of information. So in my case I have created numerous channels including Drupal, Excel, Microsoft Office and Windows Home Server. As I and other people find news articles or websites relevant to these topics we can add their RSS feeds or the individual page or article to the stream. This can be done as simply as clicking a link on a tool bar. In addition, socialmedian will also recommend sources for you to add based on the topics you have entered for your News Network.


Once you have created a news network others can follow all or part of it, as you can with other peoples news networks and topics. So “Hi Robert” – if you notice this! I have been following you on and off since long before you left MS! I think you were one of my first RSS feeds.


More things to come for spocialmedian include:

  • work on an iphone app for socialmedian
  • connecting more sites in/out of socialmedian
  • private news networks
  • and other fun stuff you have asked us to build for you.
