    BrigleBrigle is a web app that organizes and filters all of your streams in one place through its cleanly designed Dashboard.

    It’s able to centralize information from social networks, websites and utilizes search features to drill down information on any topic from across the web. One aspect of Brigle’s dashboard is similar to an RSS reader, users can add a website or new stream as they normally in Google reader but with a much prettier UI.

    You can think of the dashboard as more of a personal webpage where you can build widgets filled with the things that matter to you. The interface also gives users control over widgets by allowing them to be dragged into different positions, including folders.

    Through the creation of widgets or “blocks” as Brigle calls them, Brigle users get information in real-time. Let’s say you’re passionate about technology. Brigle can harness information on “Tech” from websites, social networks like Twitter as well as from individual Twitter accounts like @TheNextWeb.

    The dashboard uses groups and filters to simplify communication and reduce unwanted noise. By grouping messages in one folder users can receive emails from Gmail along with DM’s and messages coming in from their Twitter account. And, if you’re experiencing too many updates from a source (or individual) users will be able to block future updates by using the filter feature.

    This may be a great solution for collaborating within a group. As an example, teams in need of a place to unify and share information could all partake in adding information relevant to their specific field. Sort of like a shared RSS reader where team members can all stay on top of the same sources. A brand could construct their Brigle Dashboard to aggregate data on industry news and competitors while pulling in any online buzz about the brand.

    Unfortunately, Brigle is currently in private beta so you’ll need to request an invite from the site for access. I’m hoping we’ll see them incorporate some web analytic widgets so as users can also keep an eye on services like Google Analytics. Overall the service looks promising, particularly for teams.
