There is no denying it, we are living in the age of social media. From Twitter, to YouTube, to Instagram and beyond, most people are part of the social media world. So it make sense to create a website dedicated to social media news.
That’s exactly what new startup Flumes has done with what they call:
“Realtime news analysis through the eyes of the social web”
Flumes detects trends, tracks keywords, and analyses data in real-time to give an up-to-date roundup of popular topics on social sites such as Twitter and Instagram. Information is represented visually through snippets, graphs and stats for a digestible update on current news-worthy topics.
What you see is a live view of what people are saying and who is saying it. This is automatically curated to provide insights into the most talked about news stories on social media platforms. Flumes is a useful resource for anyone interested in seeing what other people think about popular topics rather than just reading information from news sites or blogs.
As well as providing up-to-date world news, Flumes does have a business model. Their business is data and their presentation of world news updates gives an idea of what they are capable of doing. Products currently outlined on the website will visualise news, events and financial information which could be a great asset for presentations or website stats.
