Factbrowser: the research discovery engine

Blog imageYou might remember a couple of weeks ago I wrote a piece about How to Find Compelling Internet Statistics?

Well after that post I heard from Keith Anderson who wanted to introduce me to a site he founded called Factbrowser.com.

Keith created Factbrowser about a year ago to help people discover the most compelling new research about technology, business, consumers, specific regions and the Internet.

The site is totally free, and it’s updated daily with new reports from hundreds of credible sources like Nielsen, NPD, IDC, Pew, gathered from press releases, social media posts and newsfeeds.

The entire database is searchable and filterable by topic, source and region, so you can narrow down the most relevant research quite quickly. It also uses quite a detailed topic tagging system if you like that sort of thing.

Each snippet of data also has social sharing buttons in case you want to share it with your online community with one click. But what I find best of all about the site is that the source of the data is clearly highlighted in red, together with a link to their web site and Twitter account if available.

Great job Keith and thanks for sharing.
