Alyson Shontell from Business Insider recently took a look at NY startup RebelMouse, which was launched last month by Huffington Post ex-CTO Paul Berry. The website provides a view of all of a user’s social media activity at once. Upon logging in to RebelMouse through Facebook or Twitter, the user can see their recent tweets and status updates in the form of headlines and pictures.
Here’s what Shontell says sets RebelMouse apart from the rest, “I wasn’t initially impressed by my RebelMouse page because I already know what I’ve shared via social media. I don’t need to rehash every tweet. But then I realized my RebelMouse page isn’t for me, like Pinterest is for hosting your collections. Instead, RebelMouse is like a Facebook profile page; it’s meant to help other people learn your interests.” Once Shontell came to this realization, she found that by scanning other people’s RebelMouse pages she could learn a lot about them in one quick scan.
Users can invite others, “collaborators,” to their page, and can also customize the appearance of their RebelMouse profile. The site is currently wait listing new users, but once it launches it may “prove to be a big traffic driver for publications.
