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.
