MyFeedz.com, A Personalized Feed Reader, Officially Released on Adobe Labs Site
The MyFeedz service is not new. It was first released as a public beta by InterAKT last August. A month later, InterAKT was acquired by Adobe.
On Friday, for the first time, it was released as a technology preview on the Adobe Labs site. The rebranding with the Adobe name is also new today. Much more about the service in the MyFeedz Development Blog and FAQ.
MyFeedz.com describes itself as a “social newspaper. It reminds us (on the surface aka quick review) to Findory and digg/digg "like" services.
It learns from what you like and helps you keep up with your interests.
