News in a Social Medium

I just started reading The Filter Bubble which argues that the Internet is being catered to our individual needs (i.e. you and I will get different search results for the same item, see different posts on Facebook even if we have the same friends, etc.).  At any rate it mentioned which is a start up funded by the New York Times.  It allows you to select the type of stories you see each day, select videos, images, etc. and see what your friends are seeing.  It seems worth it for the busy teacher who is looking constantly at news sources during the day.  It can also be accessed on an ipad or e-mailed to you.
