Through this platform you don't have to rely on information from one source, but rather from hundreds who are constantly sharing new facts and opinions.
Avon, OH (PRWEB) May 19, 2010
Insider Perks, the world's first website dedicated to professional unbiased travel video, today announced the launch of an innovative travel news platform called "You Report. You Decide." that will change the way people get their news.
Created with simplicity in mind, the new platform relies almost entirely on the social media community of Twitter to report, share and discuss the top stories within the travel industry. With direct access from the main page of InsiderPerks.com, visitors are presented with the most recent and trending travel news.
Each travel article features a short summary reporting the facts as written by the staff at Insider Perks. Social media integration allows users to tweet their opinions on each story directly from each page and below each story are featured tweets from Twitter, by random users, who discussed the news as it was breaking. There is also a live feed from Twitter which is constantly updated to reflect the most recent discussions pertaining to each article.
"Social media has completely changed the way we share information and news," said Brian Searl, Founder & CEO of Insider Perks, Inc. "Through this platform you don't have to rely on information from one source, but rather from hundreds who are constantly sharing new facts and opinions."
Visitors can also choose to share a story they feel is relevant by utilizing several different sharing features available on each article. Stories can be shared on Facebook, immediately passed along to followers on Twitter, sent to Gmail contacts through Google Buzz, bookmarked on StumbleUpon or submitted to Digg.
"It is amazing how fast information and news spreads through social media," said Brian Searl. "The goal of this platform is to make sense of all the noise, filter out the material that is not relevant and present each user with a wide variety of information so they can decide the truth."
Each travel article is also archived on InsiderPerks.com to allow users to revisit a story weeks or even months later and see how the conversation has changed. The live feeds from Twitter are never disabled which constantly allows new opinions to become a part of the story.
