Newsvine is a news bookmarking-social network-digg kind of service. I am mentioning the site since it’s the first serious try to create one big blogging network based on news analysis and commentary. The great majority of stories you read on major news sites come from The Associated Press. Newsvine gets its articles from both a wide array of Assosiated Press sites like CNN, MSNBC, ESPN (hundreds or thousands per day) and Newsvine authors as well as any story from around the web that a Newsvine user finds interesting.
As a registered user one can post his own articles, comment on others and start a chat room. Users are encouraged to write their own columns and recieve 90% of the ad-revenue generated from their work. There are no ads displayed in the beta stage of the service.
Sounds great. Now what?
Newsvine is currently running on a beta version that I was invited to test, but if you’d like to check it out, just leave me a comment and I’ll shoot you an invitation.
