Newsle

Newsle is a great site but only if you use it cleverly. Newsle claims to follow your friends in the news. When you go to its homepage it prompts you to import your Facebook friends, it then finds news stories about them and pulls them into a newsfeed. The problem is unless you have famous friends (which sadly TOTD doesn’t) you just get a load of stories about people with the same or similar sounding names that are of no interest.

So why are we recommending Newsle? Because it’s great for tracking famous people. So when you go to the homepage don’t import you friends just sign up for an account, skip the import process then search for your favourite actors, musicians etc. Now Newlse will scour the internet to find news stories, blog entries and tweets about your favourite people and display them in a handy newsfeed.
