Newsforwhatyoudo.com is a social news site designed to let you
collaborate with colleagues in the same industry and job function.
Here’s what’s unique about the site:

  1. Comprehensive coverage of news that matters to you in your
    profession or hobby. Most social news sites rely on users posting
    specific articles resulting in limited coverage and spam.
    NewsForWhatYouDo automatically pulls content from sources that you and
    the community identify as useful, and lets you discover new content
    read by others in the same field.
  2. Relevant Content. Tools for drilling down on specific topics
    and collaborative filtering help you quickly find what’s important.
    Because content, topics, and ranking are all driven by people in the
    same line of work,you get information that’s useful instead of watered
    down for the general public.
  3. A Community of Peers. The site helps you have a conversation
    with others in the same line of work, allowing you to network,
    recruit, job hunt, and be better at what you do.
