NEW: Shareaholic Buzz Monitor – Enabling Discovery

You’ve been asking us for quite some time to do more on the content discovery end of the equation. The release of the Shareaholic Buzz Monitor marks our first real experiment in this area. This feature is powered by our own proprietary data-set, and those from our friends at OneRiot, and Twitter.

Shareaholic users can now easily discover and stay on top of the latest trending topics as they emerge on the realtime web. In order to share, users need to discover something worth talking about, which is why we think the addition of the Shareaholic Buzz Monitor is a natural extension of the user experience. Now Shareaholic users will have immediate access to the most chatted about content on the social web – the stuff that’s worth sharing, right now!

Do let us know what you think, and how we can improve. We continue to improve Shareaholic based on your valuable feedback.

Partnership with OneRiot

Today, we’re also pleased to announce a formal partnership with our friends at OneRiot. Shareaholic makes sharing fast and easy, helping drive the growth of the realtime web, while OneRiot organizes the realtime web and helps users find the most socially relevant content on the web. In short, a partnership between us made a lot of sense. I’m looking forward to what more we come up with in the future.
