SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/13/14 -- Flipora, the fast growing website discovery engine, today announces that it has made the Top 10 List of Social Media Sites, receiving praise as a new and outstanding platform for sharing content and increasing website traffic. Standing alongside social media giants such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, the young California-based company is now positioned as one of the Silicon Valley's hottest companies to watch. Flipora's Alexa traffic stats tell the same story.
"People around the world have been flocking to Flipora and industry experts are taking notice," says Jonathan Siddharth, Flipora Co-CEO. "We recently announced that we now have 25 million users, with over 100,000 new registrations every day. At this rate, we're going to be at 30 million international users in no time. Words like exciting and record breaking only begin to describe what it's been like for us," adds Flipora Co-CEO Vijay Krishnan.
Flipora is also a winner of the prestigious Red Herring Award for the Top 100 Most Innovative companies in North America. In addition, Flipora turned profitable last year after the inclusion of ads in its product. The company is growing revenues quickly.
How Flipora Works:
Flipora's recommendation engine automatically figures out a user's interests and what they are currently in the mood for, and then recommends websites based on their interests. It does this by analyzing web browsing history and Facebook activity data to infer their preferences and generate website recommendations based on that information.
An API of Flipora's Topical text categorizer 'FlipCat' is already available, and further comprehensive updates for the core recommendation engine will follow in the coming months, featuring more interests, even better website recommendations, and seamless implicit personalization.
Flipora is constantly working on other innovations to ensure users everywhere in the world are able to access Flipora regardless of the platform they are on. One project was the optimization of the Flipora website for mobile devices in response to current trends: worldwide approximately 25% of new users sign in via mobile; in the U.S. 50% of new users login through their mobile devices. In order to support the strong international growth, Flipora is working on offering its services in a multitude of languages and is already available in eleven new languages: German, Spanish, French, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Portuguese, Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean, increasing international access to the discovery engine.
Launched in 2008, Flipora is a web-based recommendation engine that offers registered users a personalized and optimized web surfing experience based on information retrieved through the web browsing history and Facebook activity. Jonathan Siddharth and Vijay Krishnan, the two founders and co-CEOs of Flipora, met at Stanford University where they were both studying computer science at the graduate level. Flipora has been rapidly growing in the last few years and includes a team of engineers, executives and scientists from Stanford University, Google, Yahoo! etc. to serve their more than 25 million users in over 200 countries.

There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.
