Stopped.at is the next frontier in gamified loyalty, social discovery, and content curation.
Stopped.at uses a content curation mechanism that's the very first of its kind. As opposed to other sites that require users to tag/curate their own content, stopped.at is able to derive a user's true interest profile automatically, via their check in actions. The platform is designed to recognize keywords from the websites the user checks into and curates them into interest categories. The more the user interacts with the system, the more attuned it becomes to their true identity. This allows stopped.at to recommend websites, check in deals, and people to follow based on the users true interest graph.
