Publishers, you reached an amazing milestone yesterday! You featured the billionth article onto the pages of your topic specific newspapers, creating 1 billion more opportunities for favorite content to be (re) discovered, read and shared by like minded audiences worldwide. That’s something to celebrate!

Since our launch in 2010, has grown from a service for a few early testers to a rapidly growing “curation nation” of hundreds of thousands micro-publishers worldwide, helping readers to find their way to content that matters.  We think that is simply fantastic.

As Editor’s-in-Chief of your own news sites, you curate over 12.5 million links of your favorite web content daily (138 articles per second!) in 7 languages, enabling readers from Alaska to Zimbabwe to discover content in an entirely new way.  You are a core team of content curators that is redefining how content will be organized and discovered in the future. We know that you are onto something good, and we’re proud to support you.

Last year in his post, The State of the Blogosphere, Brian Solis declared that 2011 would be “the year of information curation and the dawn of the new curator”. That day is here. We’re sure of it. Over the next several months, we will continue to roll out more of the great features that you have asked for in order for you to achieve it.

Keep the good comments, feedback and feature requests coming: we are only at the beginning of this exciting adventure and the 2 billion mark is just around the corner 😉

    2 billion mark is good. But you can keep on giving information each time an additional 100 million is delivered to people through papers. Of course at 12.5 million per day, it takes 8 days only. So a weekly performance page makes it exciting.
