Google has tried launching new social networks a few times in the past, and
today it rolled out its newest platform which may feel a bit like Pintrest.
Keen isa new service from Area 120
[https://www.blog.google/technology/area-120/keen/], a group inside Google that
makes experimental projects. The reason why its somewhat similar toPinterestis
that the main focus of Keen is having you create your own keens that can be
about any topic you either want to know more about or are knowledgeable about
and wanting to share that knowledge with others.
After you create a keen, like about how to make bread at home, you can add
searches, links, photos, and more related to that topic. You can also select
?gems?, or resources within a keen that you found particularly helpful. You?ve
also got the ability to invite your friends to collaborate on a keen and add
their own links and resources.

a dash of ML involved. Powering this system are Google?s search and machine
learning technologies, which will recommend related content. That means the app
will learn better from your saved items as these pile up over time in order to
improve its recommendations. In addition to curating for yourself, you can also
follow keens created by others. Plus, you can set the audience to either private
or public, depending on how you would like to share your keens.
You can also follow keens that other people have made if you?re interested in a
topic and want to find out more from people that are knowledgeable about it.
?Keen isn?t intended to be a place to spend endless hours browsing,? Google
explains. ?Instead, it?s a home for your interests: a place to grow them, share
them with loved ones and find things that will help in making this precious life
Earlier this year, the search giant had announced some improvements to the
Collections feature in Search to help you find your historical searches and look
for more content, based on those searches.
