New York, September 22, 2011 – EasyBib.com recently redesigned its popular site to make it more user-friendly. One proof of its popularity is another recently-added feature – its Realtime Feed, showing citations at the very moment they're being created. It's mesmerizing.

EasyBib has over 28 million annual users and it is growing steadily. Now, during peak periods, over 30 citations are being created each second! That's a lot of writers getting the help they need with their bibliographies. It's actually so many that the Realtime Feed can only show selected citations; otherwise, it would move too fast to be readable.

The Realtime Feed shows that writers and students are using EasyBib to create their citations 24 hours a day – an obvious indication of the international use of EasyBib, as well as those writers in America who work throughout the night.

"We like to think of the Realtime Feed as the twitter for research, since we can immediately take the pulse on what people are researching at any given moment," commented Neal Taparia, EasyBib Co-Founder. "We also plan to add a filter feature soon that will make it possible for viewers to enter a keyword and see the related resources being cited in specific subjects."

The EasyBib Realtime Feed is visual proof of its vital status in the everyday lives of students globally. To date, over 400,000,000 citations have been created on EasyBib and spending just a few moments watching the Feed is not only impressive, it's confirmation of its value to the writers using it everywhere.

View the Realtime Feed on the EasyBib.com homepage or at http://realtime.easybib.com.
