Topsy Launch

added by Michael on 26 May 2009

Topsy is a new search engine that harvests Social Media.

 

"The 30 million or so Twitter users are an army of little content-finding machines."

-- Tech Crunch

 

 

Topsy is powered by Tweets 

 

From Topsy's About page:

 

Topsy is a new kind of search engine, with a new way of looking at the Internet. Topsy doesn't think the Internet is a collection of documents. Or even a web of documents. Topsy sees the Internet as a stream of conversations. Topsy treats people differently from the webpages they create and the things they say. And Topsy sees that people in every community are connected in a web of relationships, where each person influences other people to read, talk and think about things.

 

Topsy listens to the conversations taking place all the time on the living, social web. This is the rapidly growing, exciting world of Twitter, Blogs, Flickr, Digg, Yelp, Identica and many other communities. People use these communities to share reviews, opinions, messages, comments and discussions about things. Topsy indexes those things. Topsy indexes what people are talking about.
