It is rare nowadays to be the first one to break news about the latest product, project or event thanks to obsessive social media users, so instead of being inadvertently ridiculed for posting or tweeting something that happens to be stale news, double check 'Is It Old.'

This simple and clever website actually checks how often a piece of news or site has made it around the block, telling the visitor whether it is worthy to repost and retweet.

Created by Swedish-based creative director and graphic designer Per Hansson, Is It Old is exactly what the world needs to stay ahead of the Internet game. It allows people to filter through outdated information, allowing only the newest, most relevant news to sift through.
