Facebook event sends support to Breivik's mother - Fiona McCann curated story with Storyful

A Facebook event established to send support and goodwill to the mother of the primary suspect in last weekend’s massacre in Norway has already garnered over 50,000 attendees.

The “event”, entitled ‘Til Mamma Behring & fam’ (translated as ‘To Mamma Behring and family’) is dedicated to the mother of Anders Behring Breivik, and was created by Norwegian Adam Bjørhovde Manaf to send a message of compassion. “In these bad times for you and the rest of the nation, we in this group wish that you should know that we think of you, you are also one of the relatives. You are also hard hit, you are also one of the victims, you also are one of those that must be met with more care, more love.”

Fiona McCann curated the story using the Storyful tool.

A Bomb in Oslo? What Google Lost by Ending Real-Time Search

A Bomb in Oslo? What Google Lost by Ending Real-Time Search | Sosial på norsk | Scoop.it
Written on the 22th of July by Nicholas Jackson:

By the time I searched, hundreds of posts had been written (355 related articles, according to Google's own crawler). Those were from USA Today, BBC News and the Telegraph -- the one I selected. All of those outlets were quick to move on the story, but none of them were as fast as Twitter. And none of them will be able to update as quickly.

It was not so long ago that I would have been able to plug "Oslo" into Google and be automatically greeted by a curated stream of tweets in real-time right there on the search results page. Google let its relationship with Twitter end during the first week of July and, over the holiday weekend, that feature quietly disappeared.

But now go to Twitter, where both Oslo and Norway are trending. Quick: Do a search for "Oslo" and look at the depth and range of information -- updates, pictures, video -- that is pouring into the system. This is what Google lost.

Curated Social Media Comes Of Age During Oslo Attacks | Fast Company

Curated Social Media Comes Of Age During Oslo Attacks | Fast Company | Sosial på norsk | Scoop.it
Professionally edited new media feeds kept concerned citizens informed, without having to sift through an unfiltered global reaction.
The Washington Post promoted its own editorially curated Twitter list of Norwegian journalists, a crisis expert, and one American translator--none of whom have any outward association with the newspaper. These sources relayed much of the same information, often with a skeptical tone toward rumors and a healthy mix of links, updates, and quotes from officials.

Other web outlets dedicated to editorially curated social media, such as Storyful (cofounded by former CNN international editor, David Clinch), seemed to have a more informationally dense multimedia feed. As word of the initial explosion reached Americans, the Storyful stream offered a mix of key photos, on-the-ground-commentary, and a video of public reaction.

Oslo Bombing Prompts Experimenting With Google+ as Breaking News Tool

Oslo Bombing Prompts Experimenting With Google+ as Breaking News Tool | Sosial på norsk | Scoop.it
When a massive vehicle bomb went off today in Oslo, Norway, it was easier at first to find news about it on Google+ than Google.
A circle group used Google+ to react to the bombing and post updates, similar to how many have used Twitter or Facebook in the past.

Google+ as a breaking news tool is far from perfect. Ironically, its biggest problem is search. Profiles include a “people search” but no topic search. The platform does have a content recommendation and discovery platform, Sparks, but its results for “Oslo bomb” look sparse compared to the results that a query for “Oslo site:plus.google.com” turns up on Google’s general search engine.
