If you ever nursed ambitions of being a news editor, then here’s your chance, simply get on Newsvine.com.
What makes Newsvine.com different from other news portals or news aggregators is that all stories it publishes are actually driven by readers like you and me and not some bunch of news editors. I would call it a democratic system of collecting, relaying and reading news.
To start with, you can users can upload their own news stories or seed news stories from other news websites. Newsvine.com provides “Seed Newsvine” button that users can add to their browser toolbar, now whenever the user reads a interesting story they’d like to publish, they have to simply hit the ‘Seed Newsvine” button.
Who decides which news story should appear on homepage? Well you and other readers decide that. Each news story carries ‘Vote’ Button, if you like the story, simply hit it and promote it. The stories with maximum votes make it to the first page or ‘Top of the Vine’ list
Users can also comment on each news story, which now is a standard feature of all content websites. But at Newvine, you can also discuss the story with other users in real time using the live chat.
And that’s not all, you can even setup your own column and Newsine will share with you, 90% of all advertising revenue generated from your column.
Newsvine.com can change the way we read and discuss the news. Will look forward to hearing your comments on newsvine.com and on any similar online properties out there
