Top articles shared by Christians

A new web app called Zoecity.com launched last week that automatically lists the top articles viewed and shared by Christians (technically, re-launched.) Zoecity’s self-description is: “We track hundreds of Christian websites for the latest content.” Are you as curious as me what those 100s of Christian websites are?

I got to interview Colin Wong, the CEO of Zoecity today. Watch the video interview below [powered by wetoku; pardon the echo]:

My “aha” moment during the interview was this: as Zoecity.com bubbles-up the most popular content, it may or may not be the most important, but I think it does indicate what is most influential, or at the very least, what’s been read and/or shared by the most people. By the way, in the interview, Colin mentioned 2 articles, “Ouija board a controversial toy for tots” and “Tebow Super Bowl Ad Leads Viewers to ‘God Story’“.

You’ll notice in the right sidebar here at djchuang.com towards the bottom is a Zoecity widget, which shows the top 10 daily articles. And looking over at the Zoecity front page, there is a comment link under each item. Almost all of them have “0 Comments” right now. (Maybe that’ll change?)

How do you think knowing what’s the most popular today, this week, and this month, would be helpful to you?

    It seems to subjective.
    I have tried similar things myself, trying to give people things that are a must read. What I found was that I was going back to the same blogs over and over, mainly because that was what I read and thoughts others would enjoy.

    I think this would be really interesting if they did an alltop type feature, where they listed several blogs and helped people get set-up with rss stuff.

    I am going to watch the interview and check the site though, see what I need to be reading.
