FeedScore and the Interesting Feed

The Interesting Feed is part of the magic that makes FeedsAnywhere unique. As you use FeedsAnywhere it learns what you like and it will recommend articles that you might be interested in reading. These articles only come from feeds you subscribe to so you won't be overwhelmed with articles from un-trusted sources.

Selecting the feed

Near the bottom of the page you'll find a show interesting link that takes you to the interesting feed. As you find throughout the interface the number in parentheses is the number of unread entries in the feed.

What is FeedScore?

FeedScore is the name of the program that determines what is interesting. It also performs grouping of similar articles, otherwise known as near duplicate detection.

How does it learn?

When you click the title of an article a signal is sent to FeedScore indicating you might be interested in this topic. You can also click on the thumbs up icon to indicate you're interested in an article.

Click the thumbs down icon to provide negative feedback to FeedScore.

There's no need to rate every article. In fact you should only need to rate a small percentage of articles and you probably only need to give articles a thumbs down when they mistakenly show up in the Interesting Feed. FeedScore does take some measures to prevent over training so don't worry about that.

You can also sync with Google via the settings page which allows FeedsScore to determine what you have starred, liked or shared.

Visual Feedback

When you first login to FeedsAnywhere all of your articles will look like this unsure. The neutral coloring means FeedScore doesn't have enough information to determine if the article is interesting or un-interesting.

Articles that are rated interesting will be green interesting and articles that are not interesting will be red un-interesting.
