Fill in your Interest Profileby telling us what your interests are and what websites you like to read - and change these at any time.
Receive all relevant news on one pageorganized according to your interests and enhanced with further information and related content.
Expand your online experiencethrough content recommended by our system from sources you have never encountered before.
The search for information that actually interests us is an exhausting task, a task which consumes enormous amounts of time. While the Internet is an amazing source of information, the massive amount of data available is just too much for us to deal with. We get lost in its almost infinite space.
Although search engines have found an amazing way to help us find the information we are looking for – we type in a keyword and find the most popular results – this only works well for very specific searches, for example for a restaurant's website or a particular video. For our broader fields of interest, particularly those we want to stay up to date with, these search engines don't help us a lot.
Now, however, this challenge is being met – modern technology can enable computers to actually understand the information generated by the internet.
With this technology, Scoops recognizes what your interests are and supplies you with new content about them. You only have to type in a Topic once on our site and you will be kept informed whenever we find relevant content.
We scan thousands of articles everyday and compute the relevance of each of them for every single one of our users. The most relevant information will always be the first you see and you can explore every Topic further, since we also find additional related content. After registering once, you will continually receive all the relevant news and information that you would otherwise have to keep on searching for in the depths of the Internet – and might never find.
And we do all this for free.
The web is flooded with new content every second, and there is no way any of us could ever find our way around it on our own. Scoops’ servers are constantly gathering new articles from blogs, news-websites and social networks to bring all the information together in one place.
We have already analyzed millions of articles.

The massive amount of content we gather in step one is then processed by our algorithms. The software understands what the content is about, extracts relevant information and categorizes it. We currently do all this for articles, videos and presentations, and will soon also do it for pictures, songs and other non-text content.
We believe in transparency. That is why we give you full control of the information you provide us with about your interests and offer you a convenient way to access and change it. You can enter specific Topics you are interested in, or general fields of interest that we call categories. You can also connect Scoops to websites you are interested in so that you will receive all their updates as they are published.
You receive all the articles from websites you're connected to in one list, sequenced by their relevance to you. We call these 'Notifs'. We will also send you interesting content from websites you're not connected with as 'Recommendations'.
Origin, time of publication, pictures, and the first paragraphs of the article.
Articles, videos or presentations that Scoops recommends to you.
Information about the Topics mentioned and how the article is categorized.
Every Notif and Recommendation we send you can be explored further by viewing its 'Notif Close-up'. This presents a small preview of the text that shows you how relevant it is to you, and which you can share with other people.
Then, if you want to explore the Topic further, we generate Related Content for each article and try to find relevant videos or presentations.
Finally, we display our analysis of the article: the specific Topics which it contains and how we have categorized them. This helps you to understand how Scoops decided that it was relevant to you and, if you are unsure whether you should actually read it, this gives you a complete overview of what it is about.
