Topicfire filters out all the bad news and only shows the hottest breaking news in real-time. Our goal is to create an insanely efficient and clean way to consume news.
What makes us different is our novel HeatRank algorithm that radically increases the speed, depth, breadth, and scalability of content ranking. That allows us to rank content in real-time, rank content very accurately by popularity, rank less popular long-tail news, and do everything on 1 server.
We also do other neat tricks like organize millions of articles into neat topics, real-time updates, infinite scroll, a slider to filter by rank, extract article images, Facebook newsfeed integration, and retrieve update notifications using PubSubHubbub and rssCloud.
