A Brief Blog Profile: NewsFlick

by Thomas Hynes


NewsFlick promises "a clear perspective on world events."  Administered by Sayid Ali, the tumblr page offers a look at all the different stories that make up the day's news. World events, ecological updates and just about everything else can find its way on to this site... just as long as it's relevant... just as long as it's in the news. Lately, the site has a lot of stories around the Middle East. I wouldn't call it an infatuation, though. I'd just suggest that region is somewhat newsworthy these days. 

Today on the site, we can read about reports that Iran will shut down the Hormuz Strait. You can also see how the cold wave has affected the city of Dehli. Here there's information about the Lovejoy Comet and where it will be visible. But maybe, you're more interested in turtle hatchlings. Or maybe you'd rather see some real-life angry birds. Maybe still you prefer this story of a macaque monkey in Indonesia who took a camera from a photographer to take pictures of itself.... cause let's be honest, that's an awesome picture of a smiling monkey. 

Truthfully, there's a lot of serious news out there. And a lot of you're going to find it on NewsFlick. Now. Are animal pictures newsworthy? I'd say, sometimes, yes. One thing I've definitely learned is that the internet loves pictures of animals! It's almost like they're the sugar to go with the medicine of real news. On this site, you'll find both. And you'll definitely enjoy it all.

News Widget

Our widget allows you to display PR Newswire content on your site with very little back-end programming required.  You not only get the headline, but also the body of text of the news release, keeping the user on your site at all times.  In order to do so, the difference between our Widget and other widgets is at the end of the sign-up process, you will be provided with two pieces of source code -- one for the page where the Widget itself will be displayed and one for the pages that will display the body of text of each news release.  In addition, the sign-up process allows you to have 100 percent control over every aspect of the Widget's appearance, so that the Widget can blend in fully with the look and feel of your site. Still not convinced? Here's what one blogger had to say about the widget.
