WSJ.com now bunching articles based on what they think you’d like to read
Michael Arrington of Uncrunched writes about how The Wall Street Journal‘s website is now automatically sorting articles based on what they think you’ll like to read, using technology from a company called Gravity.
Arrington writes, “Earlier this year they began talks with the WSJ and others, and they contacted me about adding the feature to TechCrunch. We were aggressively pursuing a deal as of the day I was terminated, and I had hoped that we’d be the first to launch.
“That didn’t happen apparently (and I have no idea where things stand with TechCrunch and Gravity). But I’ve been checking the WSJ site to see when it would launch there.
“To see it in action go the the WSJ and scroll down to the part of the site where there’s a grid of topics with stories underneath (or just search for ‘personalized’ and you’ll see it right away – ‘The sections below are personalized for you. Learn more >.'”
