Throbit.com the successor of Google Reader?

Throbit.com is a place where you can find the websites you like, read and recommend the news you find interesting. If you want to create your own news feed, and find the best news on the internet, then Throbit is for you.


It has a minimal design and smooth interface, it uses the latest web technologies and delivers the best fresh news to you every day. Throbit's algorithm is very simple, however it's very powerful. In the latest news you will find news no older than 4 days. You can scan through all the indexed articles if you want, just select to order articles by date or by likes.

What Throbit's algorithm does is get the latest articles from a 'well-known sources' list, count the facebook shares/likes and tweets, estimate the score of each article based on the popularity and freshness and choose whether to display it in the 'latest news' or not.

The only thing you have to do is visit Throbit, Sign Up, choose your favourite websites and... enjoy reading the news you like!

We know that Google Reader has closed recently, due to a decrease in users, therefore it is time to find it's successor. Off course, Throbit is something much more than a simple news reader. We can say it will become a competitor of Digg or reddit one day. Who knows! Just give this website a try!
