How about http://newsmap.jp? It primarily gets its data from Google news. But then it gets news pretty much in a minimal way. If you want to read the whole article, I'd recommend google Reader to subscribe to feeds and then use a minimalist extension on your browser over it.

Does interfacing with Reader provide processing improvements over pulling the feeds directly? If you're analyzing (and enriching?) feeds, I'm guessing you're running something like Calais and Solr as part of your processing stack. With 1600 feeds you're talking about a serious number of entries to deal with. Does Reader provide enough bandwidth to pull the ...

Can I "like" a TV show on Facebook but not see news from it in my News Feed? Yes, you can. Click on the x to the right of any such news item in your feed (it appears when you hover over that item), and choose "Hide [page name]". This way you retain the "like" status (i.e. continue to be a fan, as it used to be called), but you won't get any more ...

Go to your news feed and hit the End key to navigate straight to the bottom of the page. click the Edit Options links on the right hand side a pop up will be displayed with a section called Hide posts from: then a sub section called Friends.

They have just started to implement them. One of the goals we’re shooting for is to be able to use the entire web app without a mouse at all. We’re not quite there yet, but there are many shortcuts currently available: j/k: Jump to next/previous article up/down: Scroll to next/previous article with animation space: Scroll to next article s: open share ...

In the left column, where your different groups and pages are listed, right on top there's News Feed. You can see and edit your settings there. Only the friends/pages/groups you've unsubscribed/selected hide content are listed there. And this works fine.

Are you referring to your News Feed (Top News), News Feed (Most Recent), or the Recent Activity on your profile? I think that News Feed (Top News) only displays what Facebook considers to be most interesting to you, so I wouldn't expect your own likes/comments there. The News Feed setting that you mentioned applies to the Most Recent setting. News Feed ...

From Facebook Help Center http://www.facebook.com/help/?faq=16162 How does the News Feed determine which content is most interesting? The News Feed algorithm bases this on a few factors: how many friends are commenting on a certain piece of content, who posted the content, and what type of content it is (e.g. photo, video, or status ...

You may try Cruxbot It provides a tool that summarize web article. That way you can summarize any news articles.

I believe it does. They are saving every single click and they are trying to feed you with something that you like. From an interview of a Facebook Employee: The Rumpus: On your servers, do you save everything ever entered into Facebook at any time, whether or not it’s been deleted, untagged, and so forth? Facebook Employee: That is essentially ...

I do not believe it does. In the faqs, facebook makes no mention of "Hide this post" influencing what gets displayed, but they do say that "Mark as Spam" will "help keep your News Feed clear of similar stories in the future."

You can click the "See More" link at the bottom of the Jobs pane which opens up a new page with an expanded list. On that page you can use the faceted filter boxes at the left to narrow the listings. Unfortunately, however, there is no way to permanently save your preferences in this regard. Note that the "Jobs you may be interested in" feature is still in ...

Peek into the profile of that particular friend (even from within your News Feed, by hovering over the name of the friend, or by explicitly visiting his Wall) Hover over the Friends button If you wish, you can uncheck the "Show in News Feed" to hide all of his activity, or Choosing "Settings..." will bring you to the following submenu, where you can ...

If you are interested in feed aggregation which learns your preferences, NewsBlur does training; on individual entries within, you can select Train This Story. When enough training is done, entries of a similar nature will be marked differently from other entries, helping you go to those interesting topics first.

Try Yahoo Pipes. It has tools for fetching data from web APIs and scraping pages, processing the data in many ways, and it can output RSS feeds.

Officially, you have two possible courses of action: Create a new account. Deleting your old one is not required, but would be recommended to prevent confusion. Navigate to your friends list management page at https://www.facebook.com/[your.username]/friends. Hover over the Friends box and then choose Unfriend. Repeat until your list is clear. ...

There are probably solutions out there but if I would want this... I would install a WordPress local install so I can use the functionality in there (database, get rss feed, caching / transients / rendering / etc) Via fetch_feed you can fetch the feeds: http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/fetch_feed (see code there), instead of directly echoing ...

You could build it on Google App Engine if you are ok with creating some software yourself.

Facebook's help says you can unsubscribe from someone. This works for me.

In order to not see updates from people you have placed on your restricted list you'll have to go to their profile, mouse over "Subscribed" and then select "Unsubscribe". If you go to a Friend's profile and the word "Subscribe" is there you aren't subscribed to any of their posts, so none will be coming through on your newsfeed.

Yahoo Pipes does not support protected feeds natively. You can use this specific pipe to accomplish such a task. Moreover I had some success (not sure they cover all the cases, but a try is worth) with xfruits and notify.me.

As you've noted, there are three categories that divide these up resulting in 8 different feeds: 15 vs 50 - This just tells you how many items appear in the RSS feed. Depending on how busy the group is and how often your RSS reader checks it, collecting only 15 messages could mean missing out on some if 20 had been posted. On the other hand, if the group ...

If you'd like to read News Feed items in your feed reader of choice, you can follow these instructions to build RSS feed URLs. You could then pipe the "News Feed" feed through something like Yahoo Pipes or FeedRinse to filter out/only the applications you're interested in. A bit of a struggle, but it should work for you.

It does not seem to be possible. There is chatter in the Facebook Support Community but nothing to suggest that it is a feature right now. There was a time where you could at least have priority of the filters by dragging but that seems to have been removed in the redesign. For now until Facebook brings it back , you are going to be stuck with a add-on ...

NewsCo.me website has summaries. It seems they have an Android app too.

I also would like something similar to that. With all the RSS news feeds I have in tech and non-tech categories, I want to just get the gist, the main points of each news article and not an in-depth reading of multiple storytelling pages on the topic. For now I use my.yahoo.com as my main portal and have separate tabs for different categories of news. As ...
