Topsy Adds New Feature

November 6, 2009

Topsy, one of the real time search systems that I use had added a new feature. The company’s search results now includes archived content. You can get a summary of the services other new features in “Topsy Gives Tough Competition to Tweetmeme and OneRiots in Real Time Search”. One comment in the write up jumped out for me:

There is more to the content search in Topsy. In order to filter the spam, each users are rated according to influence. This brings the relevance of the content in search result.

As more services add numerical recipes that make value judgments, the greater the pressure on traditional information companies becomes.
