Recently and not so recently two of our punters pointed us to another aggregator of European news – EuFeeds. It offers fresh news every twenty minutes from around three hundred (300 news outfits. At the beta stage, the service is offered by the Netherlands-based European Journalism Centre (EJC). And EJC is:
independent, international, non-profit institute dedicated to the highest standards in journalism, primarily through the further training of journalists and media professionals. Building on its extensive international network, the Centre operates as a facilitator and partner in a wide variety of training projects.[Source]
It always is best to know who is behind a project or a service.
Eufeeds will indisputably be compared to another European news aggregator Imooty, which on the other hand has the blurb All the latest news from the most important newspapers in Europe. A Feed is Born featured Imooty in an article a few months ago, here.
Some notes on EuFeeds:
1) EuFeeds displays the feeds like grid like Netvibes and a summary appears once you hover your cursor over as news item. I have found the grid way of displaying one of the most least difficult way of displaying feeds.
2) EuFeeds groups the feeds by country. And each country page can be reached by selecting and clicking on one of small flags above the page. Each page contains twelve er sp newspaper feeds.
3) What it does not have is a translator embedded on its pages.
Anyway … it still is in the beta stage so no fuss. As they say there is always room for improvement.
