If you’re a journalist, or just really interested in following media, both main stream and public, how do you monitor the buzz in the news and the blogosphere without spending day and night in front of your computer screen?
How do you stay on top of the headlines, what’s going on in the world, saying, and how people are responding to your events without wasting tons of effort and time?
An on-the-ball reporter or news junky is monitoring at least 500 and maybe even 1,000 feeds every day — newspapers, columnists, bloggers (good and evil), special reporters, television and radio, government agencies, etc. No one likes to get caught being stupid about the price of a gallon of milk or a gallon of gas.
But gathering all the information? Sorting through it? Getting it organized? Making sure you haven’t missed something crucial? That’s a full-time job for more than a few people. Unless, of course, you happen to use BlogBridge.
BlogBridge can do the work of at least three superheroes when it comes to information. It can help you collect and gather all the news and blog feeds you depend on in one very easy-to-use, easy-to-stay-on-top-of organized library–and it can also monitor your beat among feeds you don’t even know about. In fact, BlogBridge gives you the ability to scan the just about the entire universe: what’s being said –as it’s being said.
