About Nuzzel

Nuzzel is the super-easy way to see news from your friends.

We created Nuzzel to solve the problems of social overload. You can use Nuzzel to discover the best news stories shared by your friends on Facebook and Twitter without being overwhelmed or missing anything.

“In the early years, the most tech-savvy users used RSS readers. Then news aggregators like Google News, Digg and Reddit began to appear.

In the past five years, aggregation has been democratized by social media. A growing number of younger readers don't actively seek out news at all. Instead, they read the news that's recommended to them by friends on Facebook and Twitter.

That's more convenient, because most young people are spending time on Facebook and Twitter anyway. More importantly, it serves as a finely honed news filter. Probably the best predictor of what news stories you're going to want to read is what news stories your friends and colleagues found interesting.”
