Ed: Not sure the landing page does this app justice. When I took a look inside there is a real time feed of peoples shared content in a way which is different to what you get from twitter or other social networks.

Not disimilar to Quibb but a nicer interface. Worth a look.

What problem are you solving? Know when you’re reading an article, and you come across a paragraph that you’re thinking, wow, that’s a really good point! I have to share it! But you can’t share a paragraph while keeping it in-context with the article.
What is your solution? Favorize is place to find and share knowledge. We created a Chrome extension that let’s you highlight a paragraph, click a button, and instantly share it. Highlighted paragraphs are aggregated on favorize.com, which is a social network for knowledge. In other words, a Pinterest for paragraphs, where you can enjoy 5-10 of short reads throughout the day.
Why is this a great opportunity? Pinterest for paragraphs
