Read together and discover more
GroupReader is a collaborative reading and source management system. A response to the information overload of monitoring news by sharing the responsibility of reading together. With GroupReader you can create a reading network around specific topics. The networks encourage reading and discovery while making sure everyone is reading from the same page.
It's like Google reader for Groups.
First and foremost, GroupReader is for Readers. We want to create the best reading experience possible - the more often readers use the system, the better it becomes for everyone. Just by reading an article you are participating in creating an overview of whats interesting.
Read everywhere on any device
We've created the most convenient reading experience across multiple devices so you can always catch up on the latest articles wherever you are. You can quickly filter thousands of articles by time, category or by source. Optional layouts allow you to view articles organized by sources or in a chronological stream view.
Discover what's being read, recommended and discussed.
Catch up on the most popular articles - we track all aspects of GroupReader so you can discover what other peers in your network are reading, recommending and talking about.
Subscribe daily updates on whats happening in the network.
No time to visit the site every day? Receive daily updates on whats happening in the network. Subscribe to the sections you are interested and never miss those popular topics again.
GroupReader networks can be setup by anyone - we have created a simple system that helps you as an editor to grow and manage the reading network.
Curation Recommend and Discuss articles and sources
After reading, the second level of participation is to indicate when something is worth reading or following. You can quickly save articles and sources to increase the likelihood that others in the network will see them. Your curatorial activities benefit the network and can also be exported to other services.
Organise Collaborate on organizing the sources
GroupReader is a source management system which makes it easy to organise and manage multiple sources of data. Make sure everyone is only reading from the best sources by sharing the source organisation and rating tasks between other users.
Most news reading systems are designed for one person - what if we turned around the individual news reading application and created one universal interface that could be accessed by multiple people.
|Individual News Readers||Group Reader|
|Organising sources||We have created a simple source management system that will let you and others organise and manage sources and sections|
|Not enough time!||No Pressure - you don't need to catch up on everything - most of the time its good to catch up on what happened today or the past few days. We have set reasonable defaults so you can quickly catch up on most recent articles. When you don't have time, let the rest of the group pick out the best bits.|
|Discovering new sources||Find out which sources your friends recommend, and discover news sources they submit.|
