Utne Reader launches online magazine curated by social media

Utne Reader, a magazine that highlights the best of independent and alternative press, is combing the social media streams of key "influencers" to produce a digital magazine called Alt Wire. An algorithm is used to collect the most-shared links from a handpicked group of influential people in media, environment, mind & body, arts & culture, politics and science & technology, and the links shared by people who influence them. An estimated 3,000 people influence the content posted on Alt Wire, and the group will change over time. || Earlier: Social data powers news delivery.
