The idea is to group similar stories together and displays them according to each reader’s personalized interests.
Traditionally, readers in the oil and gas industry first pick a publication and then look for headlines that interest them. OILWIRE does things a little differently, with the goal of offering its readers with some personalized options and a wider variety of perspectives to choose from. The site may offer links to more than one article on every story, so you can first decide what subject interests you and then select which publishers’ accounts of each story you’d like to read.
With additional technology and resources available, the articles will be selected and ranked to evaluate, among other things, how often and on what sites a story appears online. This could also include a ranking system based on certain characteristics of content such as freshness, location, relevance and diversity.
As a result, content is sorted without regard to political viewpoint or ideology and you can choose from a wide variety of perspectives on any given story.
