Show each reader personalized articles for the topic(s) pre-selected by your editors

  • This module allows your newsroom to control the headline topics while giving each reader a unique experience by personalizing the order of the articles.


The benefits of personalization in terms of user engagement and subscription generation have been proven. Filter bubbles can be controlled by applying curation and diversification. Yet, many media companies are hesitant to give away control of their home pages to machine learning algorithms.


The Featured Topic module allows your newsroom to decide on the topics they want to feature, and which articles have to be shown. The order of the articles shown will be personalized for each individual user to optimise click-through rate, engagement, loyalty or any other KPI.

Froomle uses state of the art machine learning techniques to determine the best article recommendations for each user at any time while allowing for defining what you want every user to see (e.g. recent articles / featured articles).
