Feature Friday: The Explore Page

At USV we invest in a lot of networks and marketplaces. These are messy places where anyone can post most anything and it can be hard to find the good stuff. Enter the explore page. Using data, analytics, social signals, and often some human element, the explore pages are incredible places to discover amazing stuff. Here are some of my favorites:

SoundCloud Explore

Soundcloud explore

Tumblr Explore

Kickstarter Discover

Foursquare Explore

If you are building a service that empowers people to post all sorts of things, I encourage you to create an explore page where your users can make sense of it all.
