Kosmix Launches MeeHive Personalized News

MeeHive, a personalized service that scans more than 5,000 news sources and 5 million blogs to bring you fresh news and information based on your interests, launches today. MeeHive organizes information “relevant to a person rather than a topic,” with “fundamentally time-changing information,” said Kosmix co-founder Venky Harinarayan.

The service is very easy to use. You can select general topics of interest by ticking category boxes such as “online advertising,” “food and wine,” or “gadgets,” or more specific topics by typing in search queries that are saved as your own custom categories. Your personal page is then tailored to display a range of content based on your interests, and is updated daily.

MeeHive also lets you track your favorite news feeds, and also lets you search for your friends social activity on the web by typing in their names or email addresses. There’s also a section that tracks hot Twitter topics.

A mobile version of MeeHive is available on the iPhone, either by logging in on the iPhone’s web browser, or via a downloadable app from the iPhone app store.
