Friendster Founder’s New Social Startup

Jonathan Abrams unveils Nuzzel, a simple, social, news aggregation site.
September 17, 2012

Jonathan Abrams kicked off the social networking revolution with Friendster, the site that introduced many of us to the concept of connecting with friends on the Web. Now, Abrams is getting into the social news aggregation market with his latest online venture, Nuzzel.

Currently in private beta, Nuzzel shows you news stories that your friends have shared on Facebook and Twitter, ranked in order of popularity. There isn’t much clutter on the site–beyond the ranked news stories in your personal feed, you can see the feeds of friends who are using the site and a feed capturing stories shared by friends of friends. You can share stories on Nuzzel through Facebook or Twitter, and the site also suggests people you may want to friend or follow on these sites.

I’ve been trying it out, and I’m liking it so far. It’s easy to set up and use, and the amount of content isn’t overwhelming. It also includes a handful of useful features like the ability to receive an e-mail alert if more than a certain number of your friends share a particular story.
