FOR, week of Feb. 14

Featured Online Resource-- Feb. 14

This gem of a tool allows you to create stories--or to present melanges of information in multimedia formats--from information from various social networking platforms. Blend tweets from everyday people with those from media outlets; embed youtube video; let the major networks chime in--however you want to create web's best-of on a particular event or issue.
Here's an example--Hosni Mubarak's fall from power with tweets from the scene and more--from PBS's News Hour.

A high percentage of users right now seem to be media outlets, but it's available to anyone.

Every week, the Ort Library brings you a new and outstanding resource from the Web or from one of the library's databases. To get an archive of all FOR entries, click here. Also, you can suggest a website that provides well-organized access to useful info.
