Expects acquisition to enhance its ability to help users discover relevant news and information
Evri, a search and discovery engine, has acquired Radar Networks including its property Twine.com, which gives users a way to share, organise and find information.
The acquisition of Twine.com brings together players in semantic web space and creates a comprehensive consumer semantic search & discovery company. The acquisition falls in tandem with a re-launch of www.evri.com, incorporating various visual and technological updates.
The company said that its redesigned global navigation model has been improved with new intuitive ways to search, explore and filter the trending news and multi-media content of the web, and enables consumers to receive only content that interests them.
Evri expects the acquisition to accelerate its ability to help people discover relevant news and information. Mr. Spivack will continue to be affiliated with Evri in an advisory capacity and the Radar Networks team will consolidate to Evri’s San Francisco offices.
Updates and advancements will continue at www.evri.com throughout the spring and summer, including personalisation features, social filtering, story clustering, popularity ranking and trend detection and advanced sentiment analysis, Evri said.
Will Hunsinger, CEO of Evri, said: Evri’s and Radar Network’s combined talent and complementary technologies bring the industry closer to delivering on the promise of a truly intelligent, timely and intuitive way of finding the news and content that matters most to people.
“With this acquisition, Evri takes a significant leap forward toward delivering on the consumer promise of semantic search technologies – more meaningful, relevant results filtered from the ever-growing and increasingly cluttered fire hose of content on the web.
