Toutiao is a news aggregation and information recommendation engine that sends recommendations and personalized information to users with the help of data mining and machine learning.
Developed by ByteDance Ltd, and counting more than 120 million daily active users, this platform is one of the largest channels for creating, aggregating, and distributing content in China powered by machine learning. It is available only for mobile devices.
As soon as you open the Toutiao app, you get default content recommendations. Once you set your preferences and start using the app, it starts learning from your activity to provide you with more personalized recommendations. The more you use the app, the more they get fine-tuned to your needs, interests, and preferences.
You can also use an intuitive Q&A channel to find answers to various questions, as well as answer certain questions yourself.
You don’t have to worry about any particular fake news, because Toutiao uses automatic analysis that successfully prevents it from finding its way into the platform.
The app is incredible for finding missing persons. More than 1000 missing persons have been found using the Toutiao Alert for the Missing Persons feature.
