AllPopNews & Deriva

AllPopNews takes the most popular posted articles from some of the most trafficked sites on the web and ranks the results based on an algorithm that looks at how much it was shared across various social media platforms over time.

Another project built to showcase some of the Ultra Knowledge content aggregation technology, AllPopNews and Deriva are two websites built using more or less the same theme but with content from two different languages – English and Norwegian. The technology powering the sites is language independent, can be set to run autonomously and updates in near real-time to always have the most recently shared news.

Note: During the week when these screenshots were taken Ultra Knowledge were transitioning servers to cloud storage and not all processes were running, specifically with this project those that update the social ranking numbers.
