Zemanta and its applications

techie | June 4 - 2010

We use Zemanta to suggest user generated content. It uses natural language processing and semantic web technology to propose pictures,tags and links to related articles. Plug ins of Zemanta communicate with the server to get back suggestions. Server works to find the answer. It presents images, links, articles, tags in a simple interface. It encourages re-use and linking to other content with as little effort as possible – a single click.
It is useful for

  • content suggestions, images links and tags
  • affiliate linking support
  • Re-blogging (just like the Twitter) cross plat form  quoting for blogs
  • Spam free database of 10,000 news sources and blogs
  • It will do the copyright filtering of the images
  • Professional introductions with easy addition of personal images and links to social networks like Face book Twitter etc.,
  • report style mails with the respective links on the web.

Zemanta is available as plug in for CMS s like Drupal, Joomla.  Zemanta supports Type pad, Tumblr, Drupal , Joomla, Ning, Movable type,
Word press,Live Journal. It also supports email platforms like Google mail and yahoo mail.
