BBC Editors blog: Developments for the BBC News website

Over on the BBC’s The Editors blog, BBC News site editor Steve Herrmann has outlined some of the developments planned in the near future.

They include the addition of comments to stories, improving the share tools on article pages and developing its ‘Live Page’ format.

It’s a format which has proved effective, and popular, during major developing stories such as those of recent weeks. Expect further development and improvement of these pages, as we make them an even better vehicle for reporting all the biggest stories.

Other changes will also include a new format for correspondent blogs, to bring together their other work from news articles and TV packages to Tweets, as well as increasing links to external sites and  bringing in a new system to measure how online content is being consumed.

    If only the BBC could integrate their correspondent twitter feeds as part of the full RSS feed, am sure readers would be much better off. I still don’t believe the BBC has it right in terms of their use of social media on site.
