Newsvine goes public - Lifehacker
Lifehaker are reporting that Newsvine has come out of private beta and is now open to the public. I've been using Newsvine for about a week now and I'm loving it.
So what exactly is Newsvine? Basically a news aggregation service. You can read news stories, seed news stories, comment on news stories and if you want you can write your own news stories. Everything you write, seed or comment on gets added to your own personal news column which can be viewed by other members.
In some respects Newsvine is like Digg.com but it's far more than a Digg clone. It's more involved than Digg, less sensational than Digg and a very different concept to Digg. In fact it's not really in competition with Digg at all.
Simply put Newsvine is the best way to read, seed and write news on the net!
