Fed up with missing events or information you care about? Are you a journalist, blogger, sports fan or plain old information junkie? If so, FaveBot.com is just what you’ve been looking for. FaveBot is a personalized software agent that searches the web and discovers the latest content matching your interests.

Michael Seneadza, the founder of FaveBot explains, “I created FaveBot because I wanted something that could do for the web what TiVo does for TV. Instead of me constantly searching for new information, FaveBot does the work for me. Now I don’t have to worry about trying to stay abreast of events calendars or the latest developments because FaveBot has me covered. You could also think of FaveBot as Google Alerts on steroids.”

FaveBot works through a complex process of “mashing up” data from several other sites. Yet that complexity is hidden from the users via a simple control panel. That control panel — the tracking list — is where users specify the topics they want to track and one or more of the following content categories for each topic:

  • Events (from Eventful.com)
  • Blogs (from Google Blog Search)
  • New Book Releases (from Amazon.com)
  • New DVDs Releases (from Amazon.com)
  • New Music (CD or MP3) Releases (from iTunes and Amazon.com)
  • News (from Google News Search)
  • Flickr Photos
  • YouTube Videos

Users can view the content that FaveBot discovers in several ways. The discoveries are listed in on FaveBot.com but may also be delivered via RSS Feeds or email.

FaveBot is now live and users can sign up for free today at http://favebot.com . More information is available on the FaveBot Blog at https://favebot.wordpress.com/

Big Changes Coming This Weekend!

Posted in FaveBot, Internet tagged , , , , at 11:41 am by tradermike

I was hoping to keep FaveBot under the radar for another week or so. That’s because I have several changes/improvements I need to make and I wanted to do them before a lot of people started using the site. The rash of reviews this week (thanks guys!) has made me accelerate my schedule a bit. So here’s what’s changing:

  • Mass Deletion — Right now users are able to delete discoveries one at a time via a button. I’m going to do away with that and instead allow users to select any of the displayed discoveries for deletion. There will be a button to ‘select all’ and another button to delete all the selected discoveries.
  • RSS Feeds — At a minimum I’ll provide one RSS feed per user containing the most recent 100 of that user’s discoveries. I’ve had requests for feeds for each tracking’s discoveries as well. In other words, if I’m tracking ‘Facebook Applications’ and ‘Boston Celtics’ I’ll have access to a feed for ‘Facebook Applications’ and a feed for ‘Boston Celtics’. I’ll try to get that working this weekend but that one may take another few days.
  • Book Search — You may have noticed that no book discoveries have appeared for you. That’s because I haven’t yet written the book search. That should be working by Monday.
