YouTube founders’ new magazine-focused Web curation app Zeen opens in beta
Share

Back in April, AVOS, the company started by YouTube founders Chad Hurley and Steve Chen, quietly launched a teaser for a new project called Zeen. Today it’s gone live to people who applied for early beta access.

AVOS’ first original project, following its previous acquisition of Delicious from Yahoo, it’s similarly based around the idea of content curation, but whereas Delicious is about tags and bookmarks, Zeen is a more developed version of the ‘social newspaper’ services like Paper.li that were popular a couple of years ago, allowing more customization of the content.

So, what’s it like to use?

After connecting your Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts, you get the option to create your first magazine, choosing from a number of template styles and color schemes.
