Stateless Systems Announces New Features for OurSignal.com

Stateless Systems, a web development company and creator of Trendsmap.com, the Twitter trends visualization application, and RetailMeNot.com, the most popular online destination for coupons, today announced several new features for social news mashup OurSignal.com. OurSignal.com adoption has grown rapidly since launch and the powerful new customization and visualization tools have been developed in response to user demand.

Previously, OurSignal.com aggregated and visualized news headlines for the most popular stories on digg, reddit, del.icio.us, hackernews and yahoo buzz. The new features now enable users to create their own distinct OurSignal.com portal and share it with friends. Users can customize the news they see by adding or removing news sources and assigning relative importance to each news source. Users can also choose from a variety of visualizations rather than relying on the standard look. From a usability perspective, when multiple articles mention the same URL, they will now be combined and given more emphasis on the page.

Additionally, developers can now use OurSignal.com to create their own visualizations and mashups. By providing the download of OurSignal.com’s master feed in popular formats like RSS, XML and JSON, the creators of OurSignal.com are encouraging developers to leverage the feed on their own blogs and websites.

“We love to take feedback from our users and use it to constantly improve our sites,” said Guy King, co-founder of Stateless Systems. “Customization features were in high demand from OurSignal.com users and we’re happy to deliver. Now, if you hate one publication, take it out; if you love news from another site, amp it up. We wanted to make it so that you spend more time reading the news you want to read, rather than clicking around to find something that’s interesting to you.”
