I used to be a big proponent of social media, but it keeps getting harder for me to see it as anything but a waste of time. Maybe that’s going a little too far, but I’m at the point where I’m overwhelmed by the endless flow of mostly irrelevant information. I need filters! Depending on what I’m trying to accomplish at a given time, my interest in social content can vary greatly. Spindle is a company that is building “the discovery engine for the social web.” They’re based in Boston, MA and they find “the most relevant and useful social content from shops, restaurants, bars, event venues, museums, art galleries, parks, and other businesses and organizations around you.” It’s only one piece of the puzzle, but when I’m looking for somewhere interesting to go or something fun to do, I’d love to use social data to see what’s out there.

Fibers into Thread

From what I can tell, the team at Spindle has spent the last 2 years building a product that can deliver useful nuggets of information from the sea of social data. They pull from Facebook and Twitter, so you don’t have to worry about other people adopting Spindle before it actually becomes useful. I wasn’t able to find much information about their business model, but this article from All Things D will give you a good idea of what they’re trying to accomplish at Spindle. If it sounds like the kind of stuff that you’d like to work, visit Spindle’s Careers page. Right now they’re looking for a Go-To-Market Intern. The position looks really cool, and it’s paid, so check it out.
