NewsMeaL is basically a professional newsmastering page.
There is around 50 or so feeds arranged under topic headings on the sidebars.
In the middle is the river of news, there is also another stream where you can see the lastest posts from a particular showcased feed.
You can do this (see posts from one feed only) manually by clicking a label (feed) on the sidebar, where you can see all posts from one feed.
There is also a smaller stream for exclusive news, it seems to be posts re-syndicated via the NewsmeaL house blog…this also has a different view…since this news is being re-syndicated from a blog it has a feed.
There is also another small box that streams BBC news.
If you click on the more link under the river of news box you will find a feed to subscribe to all news.
There is also a search box which generates search feeds for results.
It would be good if you could see a river of news for a topic, but these don’t have hyperlinks.
Anyway a simple but effective newsmastering example. A tool like Blogdigger Group can do the same things, but it just doesn’t look as professional, well it looks generic.
Actually Blogdigger Groups can’t separate feeds into sub-headings, and you can’t give feeds labels. But you can stream a river of news, limit this to one feed, and even generate search feeds.
So with a little more charm newsmastering has the potential to leave behind the generic look…SuprGlu aims to do this, but then this lacks the robust features of Blogdigger Groups.
RSS2PAGE is coming close but then this isn’t free, and again it doesn’t have all the features.
Another great service is MySyndicaat, but the power here is in processing feeds, the next stage is presentation…who’s going to lead newmastering into the next stage.
