Mashable Launches Google Glass App Dedicated to Viral Stories

Tech blog Mashable has introduced a new app for Google Glass called Mashable Velocity for Google Glass, which alerts users about that go viral.

When the app predicts that a story will go viral, the Google Glass user will get an alert. Users can decide to have Glass read a summary of the story to them aloud or share the story on their social networks.

Mashable created the Velocity tool, which predicts which stories will go viral before they go viral, back in December when they relaunched their website. Here is more about how it works from the site: “Velocity scours the social web, collecting lots and lots of data around how people are engaging with published articles. It then pulls all of that data back to Mashable, dumps it into our own predictive engine, and forecasts which articles are about to go viral.”
