Vancouver's Summify Hits 5 Billion Stories Aggregated, Adds New Features

Vancouver startup Summify, a 2011 Mashable Awards Finalist, has recently reached the milestone of 5 billion stories aggregated through its popular social media news- filtering service.

Summify has also added some new features. The first is Get a New Summary, which is pretty self-explanatory.

Summify was founded by Mircea Pasoi and Cristian Strat in 2009. It was originally called ReadFu and functioned slightly differently than it does now but after being accepted into incubator Bootup Labs in January 2010, the startup fine-tuned its service and rebranded as Summify in March of that year.
