Buffer may have gotten its start in helping users manage their social media profiles but lately this startup is expanding into new areas.
A couple weeks ago Buffer added an option to import, follow, and share RSS feeds from inside the service, and today they are are launching a new app which helps users find the articles that have been shared the most via Buffer.
Daily by Buffer, which is described as the “Tinder for content sharing”, offers users a curated batch of articles and posts. The users can sample the content, and then either swipe right or left to either discard the link or add it to your buffer queue.
The app is only available for iPad and iPhone, and at the moment it only offers 5 or 6 stories each day. Once you run out you’ll need to wait until tomorrow for a new crop of stories.
In a way, Buffer is following Instapaper in finding new uses for the aggregate behavior of its users. Last year Instapaper launched a couple similar services, Instapaper Daily and Weekly, which offered readers periodic collections of popular content.
