What is winnowTag?
winnowTag is a free web app with smart tags that continuously look through a vast river of information to find stuff you’re interested in. winnowTag already filters around a million items, a few minutes to three months old, from over 8,000 blog, news, and website feeds.
How do you use winnowTag?
You can get started by using smart tags other users have shared.
You can create your own smart tags in winnowTag by giving each tag a few examples of the kind of stuff you want it to find. Then the tag automatically finds more information on that same topic.
Real time item and feed counts are displayed as you use each tag, like this:
What makes winnowTag work?
winnowTag is powered by our open source Winnow content recommendation engine.
How is winnowTag better than feed reader websites, apps and browser extensions?
With a typical feed reader, you yourself must find and add every feed you find interesting. That’s a lot of work. And the problem is, once you find enough feeds, far more items are flowing in than you can possibly keep up with using a typical feed reader.
In winnowTag, all users continuously add feeds. And winnowTag’s smart tags do the work of finding the content that’s most interesting to you.
Is winnowTag always right?
Even with smart tags you create and refine yourself, you’ll always see off-topic items. The point is, you no longer need to dig through a mountain of chaff to find good items on your topics.
