Post 2: Aggregation

Worth 25 points

News aggregation is a term used to describe human or computer generated collection and republishing of online information. It is an active way for reporters to do research on a subject. Learn what others are writing about and saying then share it. The reporter provides a service for the audience by finding and organizing the best information on a topic. The hyperlinks help generate authority and traffic.
