Aggregator RadioFlag uses listener "flags" for personalized recommendations

Tuesday, February 7, 2012 - 11:10am

RadioFlagWeb radio aggregator RadioFlag lets listeners "flag" content through tweet-like messages. RadioFlag then uses that information to provide suggestions, trends and search results for other users.

Radio World has much more coverage on the service, including analysis from Fred Jacobs, right here.
