Can social media create the news? Flockler launches. TNW Since its inception, social media has augmented the dissemination of news, helping links reach international audiences, 24 hours a day with added relevancy. News articles have traditionally been static and written by one journalist offering an expert opinion. Comments and sharing in social media have been included around the article, but have never been able to augment the article before. Now, social media is able to give back to the news in a whole new way, by active curation and crowdsourced participation.

Jonathan Spier, chief executive officer of social media analytics company NetBase, had the chance in early 2009 to win a multimillion-dollar contract for his 25-person firm if he could answer one question: Why do men sport stubble? The query, posed by a consumer-products company to more than 100 research firms, had to be answered by mining millions of postings by men on social media sites.
