Curate.ME: Delivering Personalized News to Your Email Inbox


By Marko Mudrinić, December 26, 2012

If you have ditched printed issues in favor of digital ones, is it likely that you don’t read just one or two news websites. You absorb the information over your social networks as well. This often results in an ocean of new articles and blog posts, and a good percentage of them is just a complete rubbish. If only somebody had told you not to read them.

That’s where Curate.ME comes in. Essentially, it’s a news curation tool formerly known as XYDO brief which delivers personalized news to your email inbox. It made its debut in March and after 6 months of beta testing, it attracted more than 20,000 users. It solves the problem of news curation in an innovative way. Using your social networks and other news sources based on your interest, it provides you with the top news articles and updates for that day.

In order to use Curate.ME you have to sign up for the service on their official website. After you do that, you will be sent an activation email which will then prompt you to a page where you can connect all your social networks and create different categories you with to follow. After some time, you will receive an email update with your curated news. It’s like a personal assistant for finding good articles – you always end up with something worth reading.

Curate.ME is social!

One of the best features about this service is the news extraction through your social networks feed. If you are like me, I tend to follow a lot of people who I work with or know from the tech world. They often share the best articles but it’s hard to keep up with the social feed 24/7 (ain’t nobody got time for that). That’s why Curate.ME is a perfect tool for tracking all the activity related to articles and news posts.

The service itself generates more than 500,000 pieces of news from social media and the Internet which translates to – you’ll always end up with an interesting choice of articles to read that day.

If you still aren’t using Curate.ME head over to their website and sign up. It will literary change the way you consume news!
