The goal with this thesis was to build parts of a service that, depending on a user’s interests and previous activity, can deliver interesting news for that user. The service integrates with social medias to gather information about a user’s interests and his or hers friend’s interests. In this way the system can deliver targeted news for the specified user. The system consists of two main parts, a server side system (which consists of several parts) and a user application. The user application is responsible for showing news and communicating with the server side.
The server side system consists of three parts.– Front-end server which handles all communication between the user application and the server side. It also crawls social medias for information about a certain user.– Back-end server which delivers targeted news to a certain user.– A database, used by the server on the server side for sharing and storing data.
This thesis focuses on a user application (used by a user on e.g an iPhone or Android mobile-phone) and a front-end server (used in the server side system).
