Trendio Launches As Stock Market For Buzz Words

logotrendio2.jpg

For those interested in examining trends and marketing buzz, Trendio.com has launched as a stock market for buzz-words: words that appear in the news are quoted in real time based on their presence in 3000 news sources. The goal is to provide a picture of what the media are talking about, which topics are in and which are out. There's also a game that allows users to manage a portfolio of words as if they were stocks. Users can buy and sell words and try to gain virtual dollars based on their feeling on which topics will get the most coverage, and rise the most in the coming hours, days or weeks. If trends and buzz words are you thing, then, I guess, so is Trendio.
