Summify has now passed the 2 billion summified story mark. To celebrate, the Vancouver startup has revamped its product with a slew of new features.

Profile Picture. visitors can now see who is behind each Summary. The picture is pulled from your Twitter or Facebook account. Edit your picture in settings > Profile

About Me. give people a taste of who you are in a few more words than Twitter. (200 character max.) Found underneath your name. Edit your bio in settings > Profile.

Accounts. view a Summifyer's social accounts. Found to the right of their bio. Manage your accounts in settings > accounts


More Summaries. under each profile picture, you will find buttons to previous and more recent summaries from that user.

Your News. headlines and excerpts now appear on top of each story's image, contributors now appear on the right side of each story, filters have not changed, and share buttons are placed underneath each story, on the right side.

Email summary. A simple flow with everything left-aligned: headline > contributors > excerpt.

Social bar. The Social Bar appears at the top of your screen when you view a story on the web. New additions to the bar include the "Summary" icon, which returns you to your Summary, as well as up and down arrows that will send you to your previous and next story, respectively.

Instapaper integration. Integration with Instapaper is fully functional. To read your stories later, click the Instapaper button: in your email Summary; in your web Summary, under each story; or inside the "Share" button, found on the Social Bar as you view a story.
