“Wikilerts” is a combination of the words “Wiki” (community-driven content) and “Alerts”.In other words Wikilerts is the wikipedia for alerts which is a community-driven alert platform on all topics.Today there is a massive lack of specific alert services. There are tons of feeds you can subscribe to (RSS feeds, newsletters, Twitter-feeds etc.) however they send you too much content. On Wikilerts, you can get alerted – and only alerted – about the specific happenings which you are interested in.
For example, a user can set up the alert community “Get alerted if there is a new startup in the tracking and alerts space” – something he would be interested in.
Everybody can report alerts, and selected community members get asked to check those before they get sent out to everybody. This ensures that no spam is sent.They believe that this process will lead to many, many specific alert communities getting set up so that nobody has to worry about missing out on specific things anymore. Links to alert communities on wikilerts will be all over the net in 3-5 years from now.
