Check out Friday’s article by Lisa Skube of Journalism Accelerator that describes the evolution of The Breaking News Network. We added the following comment:
Curation of the community is more than just local news, it’s curation of the content the community creates. We’re focused on promoting the civic institutions creating content that enriches lives, so one of our projects is to expose the real time activities of museums, performing arts and the local politicians. (We’re big Rebelmouse fans because we use their visual Pinterest-style display platform that enhances the artistic nature of these organizations). We also aim to bring the messages of national causes like DoSomething.org down to the local level by amplifying their local advocacy in every city.
