News - MeFeedia Apps Reveal Videos Without Revealing Users

 

MeFeedia has dropped an iPad app, rounding out their selection of iOS and Android apps. MeFeedia is a media sharing service that aggregates and shares media links submitted through user links and RSS feeds. Although search plays a prominent role in the MeFeedia website, it is not a part of the MeFeedia apps.

Of course, there are plenty of apps out there for checking out new videos — but most of them are centered on surfacing videos that your friends have liked or shared from social networks. MeFeedia hopes to introduce viewers to new videos not by connecting them with things others have shared, but by learning what they like and trying to guess which videos they might enjoy. As a result, most videos first displayed are in the “popular” category and recommendations improve as you tell it what you like (or don’t like).

There is something refreshingly quaint about the idea of a media service building a recommendation engine without trying to tie into established social graphs. Presumably, MeFeedia is taking an algorithmic approach, the development of which can field intellectual property that can be licensed to other media services.
