Breaking News.com has just released their new redesigned look, making it even easier to locate breaking news stories of interest from around the world.
I am a big fan of sites like this as they are constantly keeping an eye on whats happening in the world, and reporting back in real-time once the stories are verified. The page auto refreshes, so you don’t have to worry about missing out on anything.
With the explosion of real-time information, our goal is to find and verify stories faster. Many news organizations ask users to upload reports to them, but most eyewitnesses are already sharing photos and videos with their friends on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and other social services. With our new design, we’re asking a crowd of curators to help us discover and point to these reports as quickly as possible.
There is now a new section on the right, that shows news stories that have been submitted by users and news organisations.
Our home page still features a real-time feed of breaking news updates published by our 24/7 team of editors, but it’s now accompanied by a new feed (right) that showcases breaking stories submitted by users and news organizations. Think of it as real-time inbox of tips — links to breaking stories and unverified eyewitness photos, YouTube clips and tweets. You can send us links by clicking the “submit” tab, and over 160 news organizations are already tipping us via the hashtags #breaking and #breakingnews on Twitter.
They also released the new Breaking News iPhone app yesterday so you can keep up to date on the move. The app is built in HTML5 and also available on:
You can also find them on the main social sites:
So if you are a news junkie like me and like finding new places to find out the latest things happening in the world, then this is another site to bookmark.
