Getty Images Launches The Feed and taste the pleasures of "social media"

Getty Images is famous for its rights free content (images, videos and music) but the platform like from time to time add new strings to his bow. So she just lifted the veil on a new feature called The Feed and simply aims to analyze social media, specifically Twitter, in order to extract the pith and marrow. Very interesting, especially for those who like to know what is happening in the world and what are the hottest topics of the moment.

The idea is quite simple, The Feed is simply based on a script that parses all "trending topics" of Twitter to determine which are the most discussed topics of the moment. Then, the tool will search for images in the database Getty Images to draw parallels and find related content. Once this is done, it shows all on a nice page that users do more then just look. It's clean, it's done and it finally offers a different perspective on the news.

The thing to know is that The Feed is able to locate the information. So just click on the keyword "global" in the sidebar to select the country of your choice. Six locations are well supported - in France, the United Kingdom , the United States , Australia , India and Germany - but can also further refine the results and ask the service we return only the content nearby. Be careful of yourself, because it will allow the service to access location data in our browser. Inevitably, huh.

The other benefit of The Feed, is that simply moving the cursor over the image of his choice to appear for a short description accompanied by several share buttons. It will therefore be possible to swing quickly any photo on his Twitter or Facebook for the benefit of our virtual friends. In addition, clicking on the "More like this", it will show all the pictures related to the topic discussed. Very handy for discovering new things.
