Post 2 (Aggregation) and Post 3 (Free Choice)

Post 2: Aggregation

News aggregation is a term used to describe human or computer generated collection and republishing of online information.

-Active way for reporters to do research on a subject. Learn what others are writing about and saying then share it.
-Provides a service to your audience. You do the work of finding and organizing the best information on your topic.
-Links out from your publication to others (which helps generate authority and traffic for your publication).

Post requirements:
-Write a post that pulls together and organizes online information that is useful for your reader.
-Your post should include at least 5 hyperlinks.
-Upload a photo to add some artwork to the post. Take your own photo, follow fair use guidelines, or use Creative Commons image. Give photo credit in the caption.

For example:

This Week in Review: Rethinking free speech online, and mixed reviews for USA Today’s redesign
