Pinterest and Flipboard are hot for a reason. They make consuming content a nice experience by aggregating then presenting it well. I just wrote about how much design makes a difference to the success of a start-up. Still in its early days, we just found out about a new start-up called Kulisha that is trying to extend the concept to social commentary and feeds.
For many people that exist across a number of social networks like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn etc. it can get difficult to track all the comments in a meaningful way. According to its website, Kulisha says the “idea is that you can get a more fun and experience rich overview by gathering all of your feeds in one place.” Currently the start-up is only aggregating Facebook and Twitter feeds, but is gradually adding more social networks according to popularity.
Currently the site is in beta and of course has a long way to go until it becomes as beautiful as Pinterest of Flipboard, but it is on the right track. I see potential in being able to quickly view Twitter or Weibo messages in a structured way and also know which is more important than another. In this way, I could know what to prioritize what to reply to, tweet about or re-tweet. Something like Kulisha may even be a good mash-up with Klout.com, which measures social influence from people are active on Twitter and Facebook.
