Frrole is the new way of news. Based entirely off Twitter feeds, It is the world’s first social local news source. It currently provides separate news editions for 55 cities, 6 countries and the world.
Frrole allows the news to come from anybody in the world, ensuring that you are always the first to hear it irrespective of where it comes from. Frrole's algorithms have the ability to select news from general social chatter and then break it down by cities and countries, and categories like sports, travel events etc. You can see the events your city, sports in your country or the general headlines worldwide, it is all up to you.
While other social news apps like Flipboard, Pulse, Prismatic focus on providing a 'social graph' or 'interest graph' view, Frrole focuses on providing a wider 'universal view' to tell you what the world around is really talking about. In that sense, it is like Google News, but on steroids - news on Frrole can come from millions of sources instead of a few thousand.
TheNextWeb has called Frrole top tweets better than Twitter trends. It has been featured on TV programs like CNYCentral’s Digital Download. More than once, Frrole has been termed as the future of social news.
