Feedfuze – Automatic Distribution of Breaking News

Feedfuze, in early beta, developed by our friends at Portalfuze, enables publishers to create live news feeds through RSS syndication. The example Feedfuze widget below pulls in the feeds from:

  1. Various slideshow publishers on Slideshare.net, including mine,
  2. My shared items in my Google Reader and Diigo accounts
  3. My aggregate Google Reader subscriptions that are searched for the keyword “social media”, “Twitter” or “Friendfeed”.

Through Feedfuze’s admin, I can filter and choose the articles from each feed that I want to publish (first two above), or let them broadcast through in real time (#3).

Feedfuze allows any publisher to automatically distribute compelling breaking news to their audience and keep them on-site. The current Feedfuze can only distribute breaking news, future evolutions of Feedfuze may allow commenting on breaking news. This will be powerful.
