IRVINE, Calif., Dec. 7, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- TigerLogic Corporation (Nasdaq: TIGR) today announced the release of PostPost, a real-time personal social newspaper that collects and curates posts shared by your Facebook friends into a familiar, easy-to-read tabloid layout.
PostPost enables users to quickly skim relevant passages of text shared by their Facebook friends and sort shared content by type. To access PostPost, users simply login using Facebook Connect, and in a matter of seconds, all shared links, pictures, videos, articles from their Facebook friends will populate the front page of their personal paper.
Whereas Facebook's stream can quickly become cluttered and unmanageable, PostPost offers a more intuitive layout that surfaces only the content shared by users' friends. Users can also comment on, like and re-share content directly from the PostPost platform.
Under the hood, PostPost employs jQuery Masonry, created by David DeSandro, to make efficient use of page space and organize posts in tight columns for quick reading. Additionally, PostPost is integrated with TigerLogic's yolink search-enhancing technology to help readers search PostPost's vast real-time content and return actionable search results with key terms in context."This is a perfect use case for yolink technology," said Brian Cheek, Director of Business Development at TigerLogic. "PostPost delivers a lot of information from a myriad of sources and yolink search is the best way to actually search through it all and reveal what hides behind the hundreds of links." PostPost is now open and available to the public for free. Over the next few months, the TigerLogic PostPost team will continue to add features to PostPost. "PostPost is a great way to quickly digest and keep up with the news from your social circle," continued Cheek. "PostPost is a real-time news hub much like the Huffington Post or Drudge Report, except your friends are the editors."
