List and map views of news. I use a lot of news services and Ground has my favorite.

Pros:

Verified news summary, global or local. Links to more indepth news

Cons:

Nothing so far . .

Thanks Guy- we have figured out that there are people who like exploring the Map and people who like efficient feed format. We have included both the features.

I really really like the map view. I follow soccer and with ground I can zoom in on Manchester, Munich, Madrid, Barcelona, etc. to follow different matches and see what is happening

Pros:

Great balance between local and global news, very well designed and polished interface, the map view

Cons:

none so far

I think the map is great idea and moves away from just the traditional list view. If you zoom in on the map you can see local news stories from lots of locations around the world.

Pros:

You can see news stories at their actual locations on the map

Cons:

Great so far!

Thanks Guy! We love the map too !!

I posted a story about an auto accident closing lanes of traffic yesterday and received immediate response from other users that my post helped their commute. New is from many sources and verified as not being FAKE news.

Pros:

Great local news coverage, it distills the need to know info

Cons:

none so far . . .

Look forward to hearing more feedback Cathy!!

I like the fact that I can see across the map which events are the important or active ones, as opposed to just living in my own North American bubble. The reliability and verification of the source is even more important to me.

Pros:

Verification history (e.g. by the different Press entities) really helps me to trust the source.

Cons:

Will need more users at the locations to really benefit from the live crowd responses.

One of my favorite

Pros:

Great way to see a place before you visit- closest way to feel like you're on the ground

Cons:

Other users asking often to see where live

Total left bias. liberal left opinion pieces
