A newsradar is a stream of news items covering a very specific topic. A newsradar is usually created by aggregating together news feeds from a multitude of different sources covering the specific topic selected and adding to the resulting mix content items found through the use of so-called search feeds. Newsradars normally require the use of sophisticated filtering algorithms to eliminate duplicates and to include and exclude content based on a number of variable factors.
In more technical terms a newsradar is nothing else but an RSS feed which is the result of aggregating, mixing and filtering a large number of source-specific and search-based RSS feeds.
Contrary to what most people may think the hardest part of
building an effective newsradar is the search and knowledge
management skills required to the newsmaster setting this up.
A newsmaster is a professional who is dedicated to the task
of continuously improving and refining the queries, sources
and filters utilized to create a newsradar on a specific theme
