n0tice - community noticeboard for sharing news

n0tice - community noticeboard for sharing news | Social media kitbag | Scoop.it

I have just signed up for the Guardian's n0tice (the 0 is a zero) - it's free. It's a community noticeboard for news and events and I saw it demonstrated by the Guardian's Sarah Hartley @foodiesarah at the MediaFabric event in Prague last week.

 

First impressions are that it could be useful. It allows readers to rate articles and say whether they are important or trivial etc.  My first post was extremely trivial. I've added a few events, too.

 

At I write (27 Oct 2011) it's beta invite only - but mine arrived really fast.  Give it a try.

Storyful

Storyful | Social media kitbag | Scoop.it
Similar to Storify in that it is an online content management system that enables you to include assets in your story from Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, Google search and RSS feeds.

However, Storyful then presents your contribution alongside others in a portal of contributions where all can comment and share. I have signed up, and it looks great, but I still need to test it.

Posterous

Posterous | Social media kitbag | Scoop.it
My current favourite micro-blogging tool that enables you to update the site via email and upload text, images and video from your smartphone or computer.

I use this a lot in training because it enables great collaboration and teams can create sites in half a day.

Some nice themes, too, which you can customise. My Posterous is at http://mediahelpingmedia.posterous.com/

Wordfaire live blogging

Wordfaire live blogging | Social media kitbag | Scoop.it

I am testing this, but still can't figure out the instructions for embedding. They need to be simplified. However the interface is clean and simple and it looks a useful tool. 

 

From the site: "That's up to you, actually. People are using it to liveblog conferences, press releases, awards ceremonies, sports, wars and disasters; even as a public address system for teachers and a website status board. What will you do with it?"

Scribd

Scribd | Social media kitbag | Scoop.it
From the site's blurb: "Scribd is a social publishing site, where tens of millions of people share original writings and documents. Scribd's vision is to liberate the written word."

Recommended by @JohnEi of BetaTales: "Journalists often need to quote reports and documents in their stories. Sometimes the whole article can be about the content of a specific document. Many journalists then choose to include a link to the document. But wouldn’t it be even better if you could include the document in your own article?"

Great tool!
Especially for a sport oriented news portals.
The best tool so far for a live coverage of any kind of event. Twitter, Face, comments of your visitors, everything instantly on one place.
Awesome, strong recommendation. Givie it a try.

Storify

Storify | Social media kitbag | Scoop.it
Great curation and news production tool enabling journalists to gather assets from Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, YouTube, the web, RSS, blogs and Storify itself and then to create asset-rich stories which, when published, are virally disseminated.

I am using this a lot in training courses with great results. What's also useful is that you can embed the stories you create in most blogs by just copy and pasting the script across.

Here is my Storify http://storify.com/helpingmedia and here is how one story, created with Storify, has been imported into my Joomla site http://bit.ly/eQr9X3.
