Media News - Thursday, August 02, 2012
The Storyful company is becoming a vital source of content for some of the world’ biggest news organisations. The company, based in Dublin, sources news across the globe using social media such as Twitter and YouTube, finding footage, information and eyewitnesses on the ground before presenting it to a client list that includes Reuters, Channel 4 News and the ABC network in the US. The company uses a mix of journalistic know-how and search technology to break news stories. Algorithm software sweeps through YouTube and Twitter to find information, but good old-fashioned journalism isn’t set aside. (Metro )
