Toluu Releases Feed Preview

Toluu Releases Feed Preview

Toluu updated again this morning releasing another great feature.  The latest feature is Feed preview functionality throughout the site.  When you mouseover a Feed title a window is revealed listing the last 5 blog posts contained in that feed.

I spoke to Caleb Elston the Toluu founder about this feature.  He said,

“We actually decided to build in this functionality when we found ourselves passing by feeds because we didn’t want to wait for the page to load or have to hit the back button. Since we weren’t always willing to take a risk on a feed to see if it might be interesting we knew other users wouldn’t either.”

This should save users time and give you a better idea of the content of a feed.  Caleb had discovered first hand that feed titles may be bad but the content worth taking a look at.  He mentioned that while testing this feature he had “already found a few more blogs I had no idea existed.”

I previously made a long Toluu enhancement list I titled “My Toluu Wishlist” based upon the great potential I see in the young application. Toluu’s development in the last month has seen dramatic speed increases throughout the site and many UI enhancements.  Toluu continues to roll out features.

If you tried Toluu early on I urge you to give it another try.  It is faster, much more responsive, and the UI is more intuitive.  If you need an invite I have some.   Leave a comment if you want one.

    Thanks for sharing this Franklin and for the kind words. As you mentioned, I have already found the new feed preview functionality to be super useful, discovering a few new feeds I would never have clicked on otherwise. We are focused on making the discovery process more fruitful and making the site easier and faster.

    We are big believers in quick iterations and then making improvements based on feedback. We get ideas from our community and from simply using the site all the time and looking for opportunities to make some part better.

    The site has grown a great deal in the past few months and we can't wait to see where we are 3 months from now.
