Google is known to be trying out new things often, and shutting them soon if they didn’t work as desired. And now, Area 120, an experimental lab from Google has come up with a Pinterest-like app called Keen. It does what Pinterest does, helping you to collect resources like images and URLs of posts and save them to your profile in categories, and also let others add for your collection.
Google’s Kind of Pinterest
Keen, a platform for grouping your interests and share it with others. This may seem more like Pinterest, as the idea behind this is the same. CJ Adams, co-founder of Keen explained that
“Keen isn’t intended to be a place to spend endless hours browsing. Instead, it’s a home for your interests: a place to grow them, share them with loved ones, and find things that will help in making this precious life count.”
Letting you save time by reducing your research time is what Keen is meant for. It lets you group up relevant links and images collected from the web, and curate in your profile. This can be shared with anyone as per their choice, and let them contribute too. The profile can be let public or private so that you can control who can access and add resources to it.
Keen from Area 120 has collaborated with People and AI Research (PAIR) team to add the power of Google’s Search Index and Advanced Machine Learning algorithms to suggest relevant content to your collection.
It’s available for Android and on the web, and let users organize things they like. Even if you’re not an expert in contributing to some collection, you can collect things and save for yourself as a personal interest too.
