Reuters, a global information company, and Pluck Corporation, a provider of user-generated content and community tools, have announced that they have formed a strategic alliance to syndicate third-party blog content as part of Reuters news and information service. Reuters has also made an investment in the privately held technology company.
As a provider of syndicated news, Reuters will now offer Pluck's BlogBurst blog syndication service to thousands of its media partners worldwide. BlogBurst is a blog syndication network, with more than 2,800 blogs serving content to major news outlets including The Washington Post, Gannett News, The San Francisco Chronicle, Austin American-Statesman, and more.
BlogBurst syndicated blogs are already being integrated into Reuters.com and, in the coming weeks, BlogBurst will be offered to thousands of media partners worldwide who use Reuters content as part of Reuters news services.
