If you want to ease that transition (or maybe you just miss magazines), give fichey a try. It’s a site that lets you “flip through the best of the social web like it’s a magazine.”
Using fichey is easy: you navigate to the site, and choose the topics that interest you. Or don’t. Then, you’re presented with a selection of the best of the Web, social-style.
“Social” here means that the information you’re getting is from user-submitted news and bookmarking sites; sites like delicious, Reddit, Digg, or even the Most Emailed Stories from the New York Times.
You can pick a date or a topic, and you’ll be presented with a magazine-style page showing you the best of that particular day. You can flip back and forth through the pages, reading them like a magazine. The better-than-a-magazine bit, though, is you can click on any given page to get to the actual page, and you can navigate around from there for more information.
There’s also a cool StumbleUpon-like feature to fichey. Choose “Random Pages” for your magazine, and you’ll get an infinite (literally) sampling of random social network pages that you can goof around on.
Fichey has a great, flash-based interface that’s easy to use and navigate (though I found it to be a little unresponsive on occasion). It’s a cool-looking site, but still has some of the look and feel of a magazine, for those so inclined.
Fichey can be your own, personalized POPURLS, your own StumbleUpon, or just a cool way to see what’s new and popular all over the social Web.
(There’s also a blog linked to the site, which isn’t necessarily a fichey blog, but is the creator’s site. It’s a fun blog called [An Error Occurred While Processing This Directive].com.)
