I have 20 Newsvine invites to give out, if you are interested, just comment so.
Newsvine is a collaborative, social news site. Like other sites, Newsvine shows major news publications. The beauty of it is that, readers can comment on news items, which creates an avenue for interactive discussion, it also comes with a chat feature.
Tagging feature is also not left out. Any user can bookmark a news piece (or any web page) with a tag such as “sports” or “Iraq” and it will become available at Newsvine under the URL newsvine.com/[TAG]. This is very good technique with Search engines in mind. This allows you to be able to go straight to the news using the link with the tag respectively.
Newsvine uses a voting system, like Digg, to determine how relevant given news item is. Its quiet impressively packed with lots of features, and membership is strictly by invitation.
It is unlike Digg in many ways, because currently Digg is flooded with kids that think they are the law makers there. They hate blogs too. Come to think of it, Maybe another Digg site with blogs in mind, would be a great idea.
At Newsvine, you can read breaking news from around the world, write your own articles, and publish links from across the web directly to your column. You’ll also keep ad revenue from all traffic your pages generate. You are also given a domain name for yourself (yourname.newsvine.com). Mine is http://kazey.newsvine.com.
