With Pugmarks Extension, you can - ★ Find stories you'll love Visit sites you like to read and a Pugmarks ribbon at the bottom of the page will tell you what you shouldn't miss. Spend less time looking and more time reading. ★ Gather new perspectives While you are busy reading, Pugmarks brings you relevant and smart recommendations from around the web, right on your new tab. Hop on to the next story with ease. ★ Research topics Pugmarks identifies themes in your reading that you can dig deeper into. Knowing more is now made effortless. ★ Enjoy reading cards Fresh articles, new sites and interesting themes presented to you as reading cards you will love. Technology behind the Pugmarks: From opening an article, to recommendations showing up on the New Tab, there's a round trip to the cloud, search among millions of articles and deduction of the most relevant reading cards that deserve to show up on the New Tab. And all of this in just a couple of seconds. Here is what happens each time you visit a page: 1. Pugmarks stays in your context - it is aware of what you are reading 2. The page is checked for recommendation worthiness 3. If deemed worthy, the page's address is sent to the servers - securely 4. Our servers then start analysing the page to extract its meaning 5. High quality resources are then searched for relevant content 6. Reading recommendations are served along with the best nuggets and themes 7. Pugmarks then starts working to create good Reading Cards 8. Freshly baked reading cards are displayed on your New Tab Staying in context Imagine a technology and user experience, that understands your mood, your conversation, your current reading, your near meetings - and brings relevant information automatically to you. This is called contextual discovery. Pugmarks smart has contextual discovery built into it. Pugmarks finds out the address of the page you are reading (through events and callbacks) and understands the contents of the page. This information is used to bring you high quality recommendations. Preserving Privacy You tend to visit a variety of pages. And you don’t want to be served recommendations everywhere. Pugmarks uses an extensive set of rules to figure if a page deserves recommendations. On a page that's deemed worthy of recommendations, Pugmarks will send the URL to its servers. User state is used for the sole purpose of improving recommendations and it is cleared when unnecessary. Understanding context The word 'context' means a lot. Understanding context refers to the ability to read a user's mind. Many digital signals are available to decipher some of these: • What is the page about? • What are the underlying themes in the page? • Is the page on a topic familiar to the user? ….and many more Pugmarks answers several of these questions before it brings you recommendations that can be useful. Multistream retrieval The Web has long since moved on from being a web of documents. Today, more content flows close to people through their social media. Pugmarks has recognized the nature of the web today - and built algorithms to help retrieve good stuff from social media. We call this multi-stream retrieval. Anticipatory News Discovery Pugmarks anticipates the kind of news a you need, based on the signals we gather – from your current and past reading, your social connections, trends in the world. These are delivered as Reading Cards in the New Tab. Reading cards are precise recommendations on topics important to your current context. They include: 1) News 2) Trending correlations 3) Popular articles 4) References 5) Social endorsements * Requires signup on Pugmarks.me
