Insieve’s website states that it is an intelligent information sharing network which learns about the interests of user’s friends network based on the content shared by the user, and provides article recommendations to share with a specific friend based on their interests. The recommendation works the other way round as well i.e. Insieve learns about an user’s interests based on the content shared with them by their friends and offers article recommendations to them to share it with them. For instance, if the user is reading an article about photography, the article may suggest that one of his photography enthusiast friends might be interested in reading this article.
