Many news publishers have been upset with Google and Facebook over a number of issues. These include important matters, such as payment and content ranking. Now, the owner of the Wall Street Journal, News Corp is developing a news aggregation site called Knewz.com.
News Corp Reportedly Launching Knewz.com, a Coming News Aggregation Site and Mobile App
The site, along with a mobile app, is planned for launch later this year. The platform will include national news outlets, as well as local news organizations.
“The project aims to give exposure to smaller outlets that News Corp executives believe are often demoted in Google’s search results and Facebook Inc’s social feed, the people said.”
The aggregation portal won’t take a cut of advertising revenue. It will utilize both human and computer algorithm curators.
