Lead Stories is proud to announce StoryTide.com, a new website dedicated to bringing readers the most recent news that is rising quickly on social media. And when we say 'most recent', we mean it! The site uses Lead Stories' own Trendolizerâ„¢ engine to automatically identify links that are:

  • Relatively new (sometimes even just minutes)
  • Haven't been shared around much on social media yet
  • Are being shared on social media at a high rate

The result is a constantly changing front page filled with links to interesting new articles from around the web. Links rarely stay on the page for more than five to ten minutes so the content is always guaranteed to be fresh. An indicator at the top of the screen updates every minute with the number of new stories available at the click of a refresh button.


If you are the sort of person who enjoys being the first to share a particular bit of news in social media circles or if you are simply addicted to always getting the latest news first, hop on over to StoryTide and get your fix now!
