If our readers have not heard of social news aggregator Nuzzel, here’s a primer: Nuzzel is a social news aggregator that pulls together all the stories from your Twitter & Facebook feeds. So it makes it easy for you to deal with “social overload”, & is an easy way to read news posted on the social networks by your friends.
Nuzzel has now launched its Android app, just like its iOS app. Launched in September 2012, Nuzzel was founded by serial entrepreneur Jonathan Abrams. The latter is a co-founder of Founders Den, & was previously the founder & CEO of Socializr, Friendster, & HotLinks, & a software engineer at companies like Netscape, so he’s a man of some experience.
Like Nuzzel, there are a dozen-odd social news aggregators out there like News.me & Summify, later acquired by Twitter. But Nuzzel claims to be different from the pack.
There are 3 ways you may use Nuzzel – the desktop version, or the 2 apps. No setup or configuration is required, just login with Twitter or Facebook & start seeing the interesting news stories within seconds. You can also use Nuzzel to share interesting stories with your friends via Twitter, Facebook, email, or SMS. What’s more, you can even use Nuzzel to send you customized news alerts when breaking news is shared by many of your friends.
Nuzzel is backed by 500 Startups, Andreessen Horowitz, Charles River Ventures, IDG Ventures, SoftTech VC, and angel investors like Eric Ries, Gil Penchina, James Hong, Max Levchin, Michael Birch, Naval Ravikant, Philip Kaplan, and Rick Marini.
