/// Friendster Founder Jonathan Abrams Is Back, and He Wants to Bring You Your Tech News

September 16, 2012  |  All Things Digital


Famous and successful tech entrepreneurs often seem to pride themselves on staying out of the fray of tech news and blogs. They don’t like to admit to taking time out of their busy lives to tune in for all the daily excitement (such as it is). Not Friendster founder Jonathan Abrams. This week he beta-launched his own tech news aggregator, Nuzzel . Photo credit: Flickr user tychay Nuzzel is a purely social news aggregator. There’s no machine learning, no topics, and no set-up process beyond connecting Facebook and Twitter. The site, which Abrams built entirely himself, has a surprising quotient of customization and polish. He said he is launching in order to get users, raise money and hire people to do things like build mobile app versions. The main page of Nuzzel is a personalized list of stories, ranked by recency and the number of friends who posted links to them. Users can opt to get an instant summary of relevant stories for as short a time as an hour, or as long as the past week
