Tools for Journalist to work and communicate more efficiently!

Tools for Journalist to work and communicate more efficiently!

Curation has always been the DNA of news gathering. Even before the age of computers reporters created folders of news clippings, stored in boxes, filled with articles they came across while reading other newspapers and magazines.

KBrowser makes this whole process of reading multiple news sites, curating articles of interest, adding notes and tagging the information for later retrieval a lot easier and even enjoyable!

The KBucket platform makes it real easy to search a library of curated news, keep track of news timeline, quickly navigate and investigate news in context based on topic, publisher, author tags.

Here is a description of our tools as they apply to data journalism and social media posting
