Website Discovery Engine Honored Among Top 10 Social Media Sites

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.

Upcoming Innovations:
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.
