{March 11, 2009}   "In The News" Blogs and Social Networks

We wanted to venture into the realm of “In The News” Blogs and Social Networks. Actually a difficult subject to search on the net. What you get with searching for Blogs and Social Networks that contain “News” are which Blog platforms or Social Networks Are In The News ๐Ÿ™‚

Many Blogs and Social Networks that we came across were mostly “Second Hand News” but, in reality, if you aren’t On The Sceen reporting as it happens, all news is somewhat that ๐Ÿ™‚

For the best in “Weather News”, we found Weather.Fox.com for all you land based weather junkies out there (like me :), If you are a boater, maybe not (this is NOAA :), but for land based dwellers who want to meet and greet other weather buffs, this is the place ๐Ÿ™‚ Upload photos, videos, create blogs, visit the forum, and make friends. Coolies to Fox for creating a Weather News Social Network where you can get your extended forecast, favorite blog posts, set a featured weather photo, get weather questions answered on Tropical Weather, Storm Chasing, Climate Change, Weather Around the World, Read Weather stories or post your own! Complete with a Meebo Chat! Getting News and views from Meteorologists, seasoned Weather Announcers, Bloggers, and Regular Joes ๐Ÿ™‚

A different “take” on a News site is AvatarsUnited.com ๐Ÿ™‚ A site for your Gaming Avatar (from the perspective of the Avatar, not your personal perspective ๐Ÿ™‚ so, if you want the skinny on what Avatars are doing in game, check it out ๐Ÿ™‚

How about some sites for Real Headline News ๐Ÿ™‚ USA Todays Community Connecting Readers to Reporting (easy to set up a profile here and free), is a very fast site for both navigation and uploading photos or profile adjustments. Hop right over to the main USA Today page to comment on or recommend an article and one click away to the Blogs area! They make it easy to add favorites Blog Titles to your home page and widgets ๐Ÿ™‚ The most popular headline widget is nice! USA Today also offers a “Green News” widget for climate and weather headlines, both of which I put I placed on the front page of my new site for news InTheNews.Wetpaint.com, a place to “See” the Headline News at a glance using the very coolest of widgets, so you know which News is what you want to read ๐Ÿ™‚ If you need a dose of or want to scan the headlines, stop by ๐Ÿ™‚ Links to all the main In The News sites ๐Ÿ™‚

USA Today Community also offers free to use widgets for Finance, Celeb Watch with Will Keck, USA Today Sports Headlines, Politics, Pop Candy with Whitney Matheson for the latest News and Trends in Music, TV, Books, Video, Movies, Celebrity Interviews and finding the best sites. There’s Today in the Sky with Ben Mutzabaugh for airline news and Top Travel Stories, so, an incredible selection of In The News widgets for your Blogs and Social Networks at USA Today Community ๐Ÿ™‚ These widgets work with PageFlakes, iGoogle, Facebook, TypePad, NetVibe, Blogger, MySpace, and sites like InTheNews.wetpaint.com ๐Ÿ™‚

My main motivation for creating this blog style social network In The News viewing site was because it was so difficult to find social networks that were for people who wanted differing News stories from different broadcasters all in one glance ๐Ÿ™‚ I find it nice to have all the Headlines in one spot, then be able to click to view the stories I want to read more of. Spending time actually reading instead of searching ๐Ÿ™‚

While Mashable.com is not a social network (well, not yet anyway) the following for this blog is huge because people want to know the Technology News, Internet News, and ideas over at Mashable ๐Ÿ™‚

Internet.com is the network for Technology proffessionals with newsletters, products, and special offers is something for techies to see! Applications and Internet Development, Job Functions and Occupations, Information Technology, Linux News, E Commerce Guides, WeboPedia Daily, Database Journal, Server Watch, Hardware Central, Sharky Extreme, BlackBerry Today,ย  and Wifi Planet are just a few of the newsletters and special offers you have a choice of when you sign up with Internet.com.

For an intense listing of Sports Social Networks check out JasonFPeck.com, he has quite the list of Sports Social Networks and seems to know much more about Sports than Stevie and I ๐Ÿ™‚ Sports Social Media at Take A Peck! Great site Jason ๐Ÿ™‚

Another awesome News for Gamers Based Social Network (especially for Spore lovers) is SporeIllustrated.wetpaint.com ๐Ÿ™‚

For Celebrity News check out TwilightMovie.org or JamesBondWiki.com
