Enliten.com – Read Personalized News
Those who call Facebook a timewaster are clearly taking things too far, but I understand why they do it. Facebook is addictive. And anything that is addictive keeps you from doing other things. So, time spent of Facebook is time that you don’t spend checking other sites. But the ones who say that Facebook is a waste of time just don’t realize to which extent it centralizes information, and how a single hour spent there can tell you as much about the world outside as an hour reading blogs and news sites. But no matter how much you try to explain this, there are people who just don’t listen, and who keep on dismissing Facebook times out of mind.
A service like Enliten might help them understand how useful Facebook is for staying informed. Enliten is a platform for the creation and delivery of personalized magazines. If you sign up for the service (it’s free), you’ll get to define all your interests and tastes, and based on that Enliten will produce a personalized magazine for you to read on your browser.
And Facebook can play a vital role in the creation of such a magazine since you can connect your social network account with Enliten. By doing so, the service will be able to understand your likes and interests even faster, and to deliver even more relevant articles to you. Not to mention that you’ll get to share what you’re reading a lot easier with your friends.
So, Enliten is a sort of personal newspaper for the 21st Century. It lets you define your interests one by one, and it also brings social networking into the equation. It should be enough to show even the most stubborn of people how traditional media coverage and social networking can be on the same page, and how they can play a truly complementary role. And hopefully, encourage them to move with the times once and for all.
