Collected: Topic-Based Feeds Delivered

If your job requires you to have your finger on the pulse of an industry, then you should take note. Curated feed community Collected offers users a great option for aggregating the latest info from their favorite sites. First developed by Stockholm-based new media agency Great Works, Collected aggregates feeds from blogs, YouTube, Twitter, Flickr and Friendfeed and allows you to create fast web-based collections.

In our upcoming report The Real-Time Web and Its Future, we describe Collected as “a reverse Tumblr or Posterous, for OPML files.” While some users choose to connect their own identities or create entertaining collections like Ashton Kutcher’s NFL Tweets, we see this as a great opportunity for professional bloggers and journalists.

Collected lets you streamline your news in manageable subject-specific collections. As we note in our report, “Collected is one of an increasing number of stream reader services we’re seeing that don’t offer a “river of news” view, [instead] it forces you to look at collections one at a time.” Coupled with the fact that the site offers a clean blog-like interface, Collected makes for a great discovery experience. Similar to how Lazyfeed lets users search topic-specific feeds, Collected allows you to search collections to find new feeds and like-minded community members. Users then “favorite” each other to follow each others’ collections. Collected’s new mobile site allows you to view collections on the go.

If you’re tired of cleaning up your regular feeds and you’re too impatient to wait for an adaptive news reader application like Parse.ly, then Collected just might be your answer. For more info on Collected register at Collected.info or order our upcoming report below.
