An eMedia Vitals article looks at how NY area newspaper and magazine publishers are using and investing in curation platforms. For example, The New York Daily News holds a stake in LOUD3R and uses the platform to integrate outside content into sections about pets and travel. The travel section pulls in relevant travel deals in addition to news content. Daily News editors are involved in the curation process, going in manually a couple of times a day.
The Wall Street Journal uses Onespot, which works by mining relevant sources for a topic, while The New York Times uses curation tool Publish2 to collect links for both widgets and blogs. NY-based magazine publisher, Hearst, uses Evri‘s technology to power its LMK service, which populates topic pages–such as everything you want to know about Justin Bieber– for Seventeen‘s website.
