Support for APML

Cluztr has been long since been a supporter of APML and we’ve been working with workgroup to develop, refine and propagate the standard. APML stands for “Attention Profiling Markup Language” and consists of all the information online about what you read, write, share and consume.

APML allows users to share their own personal Attention Profile in much the same way that OPML allows the exchange of reading lists between news readers. The idea is to compress all forms of Attention Data into a portable file format containing a description of ranked user interests.

Many companies are already making huge sums of money off of your attention data. APML is a method for you to use it for our own purposes as well.

As your browse the web, with Cluztr, it creates your Attention Profile which you can link or export to any number of third-party online services that supports APML. Just grab the feed from the APML icon on your profile page.
