NewsTrust: A Social Networking News Review

Loren Baker over at Search Engine Journal (who awarded us first place for Search News Blog of 2006) outlines how NewsTrust plans to use a social networking approach to promote online journalism.

The method will be a little more structured than Digg or the other social networking systems that are used at the moment.

They plan to use a 10 category system, according to Search Engine Journal:
* trust
* fairness
* importance
* recommendations
* balance
* context
* evidence
* information
* sources
* style

This should be one to watch in the coming year. It is always interesting to watch different verticals employ methods that have proven successful for others.
