Brief about Magazino

Magazino, was started by a few technoprenuers about a year back, who wanted to bring data science to publishing. They believed that current media houses are not doing justice to what should be served to people and with use of Big Data they can get a fair differentiation in their offering.

In the last one year, Magazino has done a lot of experimentation with publishing several topics and content. They have made sure that they capture all the data at the back end. Now, they want to put a bit of science to predict which articles get shared on social media, which ones don’t! To that extent, they have stored social media performance of ~24,875 articles they have published till date along various attributes.
