Cascaad is the company behind the consumer product: CircleMe (http://circleme.com). CircleMe is an inspiring social way to collect all your likes and discover new ones.
Cascaad focuses on developing technologies which allow to consume content online in a more personalized way. Cascaad’s technologies help the right content find users through a deep analysis on social graphs and social stream activity to create a current semantically-rich interest profile and social sphere of influence for a person, that can then be used to surface personally relevant content and ads.
Since establishment, Cascaad launched the following products: 1) Cascaad Reader (web and iOS) 2) Splice 3) CircleMe (http://circleme.com)
The company was founded in 2008 to address the increasing shift in digital consumption habits towards social streams and mobile devices, that call for new ways to surface relevant information based on (push) discovery rather than (pull) search.
Cascaad’s technology is powering innovative consumer products and API-based services that improve social content consumption through prioritization of social streams, tailored suggestions of new content and serving of contextually relevant transactions, all in real-time.

CircleMe (www.circleme.com) is an interest-based network, which allows people to interact with their passions, disrupting the limitations of traditional social networks.
The system asks a user to “connect” with his/her passions, and then automatically provides them with content and services related to them. As a consequence, CircleMe then puts the user in contact with other people who share same or similar interests. Finally, by learning about a user’s likes, CircleMe can then suggest new potential interests for the user to discover.
The service is available in English, on web and iOS app.
