Zite has announced that they will be shutting down their news aggregation service on the 7th of December, the company was acquired by Flipboard in March of last year.
The company is asking users to migrate their settings over to Flipboard, Flipboard recently finished integrating Zite’s technology into their news aggregation service.
We wanted to ensure that Zite’s key functionality was available in Flipboard before asking users to migrate. Now that we’ve integrated all the major parts of the technology such as the topic engine, collaborative filtering algorithms and thumbs up and down voting, Zite will soon stop being available as its own app. Zite users have a few more weeks to import their preferences into Flipboard. We hope many of them will do this.”
If you are using Zite you will receive a notification within the app or via email about migrating your feeds over to Flipboard, you can also follow Geeky Gadgets on Flipboard here.
