Punchfork Tells Foodies Which Recipes Are Hot Right Now
You've seen too many recipe websites. It's okay - so have I. But Punchfork is doing things a little differently by leveraging hardcore algorithms to curate the best recipes found on the Web based on social network chatter, in realtime. Punchfork has built a sophisticated algorithm that measures a how many times a recipe posted by its publishing partners gets shared on social networks like Twitter and Facebook and sites like StumbleUpon. The higher a recipe's score based on Punchfork's technology, on a scale from 1 to 100, the more it should have been talked about and shared on the Web.
