Jildy allows you to filter your Facebook newfeed. This screenshot shows a filter that delivers information just on the Curiosity Mars mission. Very useful!
Are you losing contact with the Facebook friends who really matter to you? Are you failing to see important posts because they’re getting lost in a spew of irrelevant updates?
The new Jildy 2.0 iPhone app (http://j.mp/tojildy) is available today and is designed specifically for you!
The app allows you to search the posts in your Facebook newsfeed, and makes it easy for you to create a standing search as a filter. A filter is a great way to quickly catch up on posts that are on some particular topic you care about.
The app also provides a one-tap way to see a picture of your Facebook friends who know each other. You’ll be surprised at the ‘clusters’ that exist in your social network. Jildy finds them and shows them to you in a very compelling and graphical way. (You can even share a “group photo” with your friends, on Facebook!)
Jildy 2.0 is available here: http://j.mp/tojildy
The full press release is available here: http://www.prleap.com/pr/189033/
And a screencast / demo is available here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xntg64mpc6Q
The new Jildy 2.0 app did an awesome job of finding all the Mars Science Lab-related topics in my personal newsfeed today!
Topics are shown over posts, as little voice bubbles. Tapping on a topic runs a search for matching posts.
This gives me a visual, quick, and useful overview of what’s happening with the Mars Science Lab mission. Go NASA!
Get an alert on your iPhone whenever an important post appears in your Facebook news feed.
Jildy (version 1.2) makes it possible, and this short demo video shows you how: http://youtu.be/6zWWRrnMBw8
Is your social soul in torment from fear of missing an important Facebook post? Version 1.2 of the Jildy app solves this problem and is available now, in the AppStore (http://bit.ly/wh2bYz).
This new version of the Jildy iPhone app generates an alert on your iPhone whenever an important post shows up in your newsfeed. You can specify topics (like “tahoe” and “squaw valley”) in a list, in order to set up a standing search against your Facebook newsfeed. You can also turn on notifications for any list.
You get badges on the Jildy app that show you unread posts, and you’ll receive alerts on your phone to tell you when new matching posts are found. Unlocking your phone on an alert takes you to the matching list in the Jildy app, and to the matching post in that list.
You can also specify a list of people, and turn on notifications for that list. So you’ll get alerts whenever those people post, no matter what they post about. In fact, the Jildy app imports all your existing lists from Facebook, and you can even turn on notifications for those imported lists. It’s pretty cool!
Yes, there’s great information in your newsfeed. And yes, it’s fun to watch the posts stream by, when you have the time to do that. But can you afford to be watching your Facebook newsfeed all the time, to be sure that you don’t miss something important? No, you can’t.
So instead of being worried that you’re missing important updates in your Facebook newsfeed while you’re out and about, use Jildy. It will soothe your social soul. Get Jildy in the AppStore, today (http://bit.ly/wh2bYz).

Rafe Needleman of CNet explains how Jildy makes it possible:
"You can also set up your lists based on keywords, which is useful. I set up a list called ‘Parents’ with keywords like ‘kids, children, school,’ and so on. It’s like Google Alerts for your Facebook networks. Very handy."

CNet’s Rafe Needleman writes about Jildy! And he has some nice (and, dare we say, accurate) things to say… :)
Quoting “… Jildy is a useful tool to improve your connections to what’s happening in your Facebook network. Using it, I had the feeling that its algorithms worked the way my own social brain did: It organized people the way I would and let me quickly set up my own networks without requiring too much thought.”
Go, Rafe! And thanks for the kind words.
