The Summarizer Shortens the Gap between Traditional Media and Real-Time Web
Over the past few months, social media has got a head start for promptness over media networks on several occasions. All thanks to the large Facebook and Twitter community, it would only just take less than 30 seconds for people at the scene of the recent Jakarta bombings to break the news and almost instantly, it has become one of the top trending topics.
However, I pity the journalists working for CNN or New York Times. The traditional media would have to take at least a lengthy 30 minutes to broadcast the news. By then, millions of people on these social networking platforms were already discussing the issue. In today’s world, what we want is real-time responsiveness and Twitter got to be the most suitable choice as it’s the epicenter of world events. This has played a part in Twitter’s exponential growth.
Let’s say you prefer the traditional media but would love to keep up with the social media trend. This is when The Summarizer comes in really handy. It’s a mashup of both Evri and Twitter and currently in Alpha. Evri is a platform which searches the World Wide Web and gather content from as many highly regarded information sources as the system can find, turn them into profile pages on people, places, books, movies, companies, events, organizations, teams, products – all kinds of stuff.
