Newgie Launches ENews Portal

Oct 17, 2006

Newgie, LLC has announced the beta launch of its enews portal designed to consolidate, filter, and organize news from news sources across the globe. Newgie utilizes a ranking engine behind the scenes that emphasizes user activity as a ranking factor, and news reading and collaboration tools on the front end. Newgie offers three primary tools to its users: Newgie CATEGORIES, which are topic-specific bundles of news powered by Newgie's IntelliRank filtering and sorting engine--articles ranked by user interest; Newgie COMMUNITIES, which are powered by groups of users with common interests--users recommend articles to each-other; and FEEDS, which are powered by third-party RSS feeds (the standard in current-generation news aggregators). Newgie is a cost-free service where users customize all aspects of their ‘MyNewgie' homepage so that news is filtered and displayed to match their preferences, however basic tools are available to unregistered users.
