Social network based on personal libraries of news fragments

News media are going through a historic transition, as the conjuncture of digital and social media is merging the roles of readers and providers. Readers are increasingly participating in the news media cycle, where news are written, published, commented, associated with other news, improved, and published again. The goal of the Breadcrumbs project was to capitalise on the participation of the general public in the production of news by creating bridges between online news and the Social Web. The project built on the use of Social Web tools, gathering the opinions of readers, and creating a semantically organised model of the readers opinions.
