Neat tools and sites I’ve run across this past week:
MagCloud: Create and publish your own magazine. You can pull from public RSS feeds, news items or publish original content. Intriguing way to improve output options for HP’s print division, too!
Newsmap: All the news before it becomes fish-wrap. Interesting, visual way to display news headlines and stories. Great place to study headlines that get clicks if you’re looking to improve post titles or general headlines.
Spezify: Visual search engine that pulls videos, pictures and text to form a visual map of a keyword. Fun to play with, quickly overwhelming.
Trendistic: yes, you guessed it – visualization of hot twitter terms. Good potential to become a viral hit due to the ability to embed queries.
Optimizely: Easier A/B split testing. Currently in private beta, but anything that makes A/B split testing easier online is worth reviewing. Nice overview video.
Did I miss something? Let me know in the comments section and I’ll cover it in a future post.
