When you search for something on a search engine, you’ll oftentimes be presented with results that have been available for quite some time. You may search for information on a current hot topic only to be disappointed by content that was indexed weeks, months, or even years ago. Granted, some search engines are bringing a portion of relevant real-time results into their regular results, but OneRiot goes even further by focusing on current content that’s being shared at that exact moment.
Prepare to see a lot of Twitter and other social icons on this site. The way in which OneRiot works involves displaying not just the most recent content, but the most recent and popular shared content, and the search engine uses data from services like Twitter to figure out what should be displayed. When you arrive at the site, you’ll see some of the most recent trending stories and you’ll also see categories containing current popular content that you might be interested in. Once you go real time, it’s hard to go back to traditional search results.
