Feedient was a social media aggregator which goal was to unify and gather all social feeds into one easy-to-use overview. The platform was developed as a clean and minimalistic modern web application with support for six content providers; Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube (subscription feed), Tumblr and RSS. The social feeds were presented side-by-side as an overview and utilized modern real-time streaming techniques for content updates.
I co-founded Feedient together with my friend Xavier Geerinck in the summer of 2013. My responsibilities included all kinds of design, front-end development and various other business-related tasks such as PR and marketing.
Feedient launched it’s public beta in April 2014 and was shut down a year later, in April 2015, partly because of increasingly tough third party restrictions from the social networks (read all about it). During this year we obtained about 80 000 unique visitors, peaking at about 400 concurrent visitors. Collectively all visitors spent a jaw-dropping 26 years of time using our service, at one hour per visit on average – something which we’re very proud of. We were also featured in tech publications such as Lifehacker and Olhar Digital by Brazilian UOL.
