Joomla

Joomla | Social media kitbag | Scoop.it

Thank you Dave for this precious intro.<br/>NewsCurve already works on several big portals. My friend Daniel Bukumirovic and Editor in Chief of Mondo.rs is astonished by the value of this tool for their newsroom which is one of the best in Serbia. <br/>It is also presented in Ringier Serbia and they will use it for Blic.rs which is the most popular news portal in Serbian language. <br/>It's really amazing tool to follow the impact of your content on social networks and take that valuable feedback instantly in your newsroom. <br/>Wouldn't it be nice to know which stories from your front page really make some viral effect and which of them don't deserve that precious place? <br/>It's not enough just to use tools like Google Analytics anymore and watch for pageviews. Today more than anything we want our content to be shared not just viewed. We want to measure it and NewsCurve is created to serve that purpose.<br/>Dejan Restak <br/>NewsCurve Adviser<br/>@soundsponge on Twitter <br/><br/>
