Time Launches Facebook, Twitter-Inspired ‘Newsfeed’

Time magazine rolled out a new, Facebook and Twitter-inspired website on Friday called “Newsfeed.” The site (newsfeed.time.com) appears to be an edited stream of Time stories and aggregated others that are “trending” – on Google, Facebook, Twitter and other social sites – presented in blog-like reverse chronological order. Time corralled FedEx as the launch sponsor. In a release, executive editor Dan Eisenberg offered a few more details: “We are going to be agnostic about who we’re linking to. We are mostly interested in the best content out there, but we will always offer an original take beyond what has already been said.” More: “The site will put breaking news and online memes into perspective as they happen, giving users the latest on the oil spill, showing how many Facebook users have signed on to support Betty White hosting the Academy Awards and answering why Justin Bieber is a trending topic on Twitter every single day.” In addition, Time is promising “fun, wacky viral content.”
