msnNow for all the latest on Facebook, Twitter and other Social websites
Microsoft today started a new social reader service called as msnNOW, basically aiming the social websites mostly Facebook and Twitter.
Microsoft say that the algorithm will be monitoring the most shares and hot topics on the social web.
"We're taking the hottest, socially trending conversations on the Web and surfacing them," said Bob Visse, general manager of MSN.
The interesting part is that the service also sorts stories under topic headings that are familiar even if they have somewhat novel names. Stories under "Fame" will focus on celebrity gossip and entertainment news.
