    Follow Topics, Bloggers and Reporters: A New HuffPost Feature

    These days, even the most diligent newsreader can have trouble keeping up. Between newspapers, blogs, apps, RSS, Twitter and Facebook, the options can seem endless. And yet, frustratingly, it’s the story we most care about that so often slips through the cracks.

    That’s why HuffPost is now allowing readers to follow topics, reporters and bloggers on the site and across social platforms.

    Want a tweet every time Arianna blogs? An email when Sam Stein lands a great scoop? Or an update to your Facebook Wall when the latest news from Japan breaks?

    It’s all as simple as the click of a mouse. Here’s how the new follow features work.

    Follow Topics

    You might have already noticed the encircled + icons beside story tags. You can find them on front page stories, and above the text on article pages. Hover your mouse over a tag, and you have the option to follow it on Facebook or Twitter (in either case, we’ll start sending you updates on HuffPost).

    How does this all work?

    We’re using the latest technologies offered by both Facebook and Twitter’s application programming interfaces (APIs) to publish automatically and directly to those platforms.

    We send updates to your News Feed by using Facebook’s Open Graph protocol, automatically generating pages for each of the important topics we cover, called Big News pages. If you Like soccer, for instance, you’ll start seeing updates about the sport posted to your wall.

    With Twitter, likewise, we have created over one thousand Big News accounts — from alerts on Egypt to the latest news on airlines. When news breaks, follow your favorite topics to get instant updates on Twitter.

    Follow Bloggers and Reporters

    Any bylined story on HuffPost now includes a set of follow icons: Fan a blogger or reporter for updates on HuffPost; click RSS to scan their feed; get email notifications; hover over the Twitter icon to start following the writer; and Like the author to get updates posted in your News Feed.

    The New York Times is implementing a new online payment plan.

    Beginning March 28, visitors toNYTimes.com will be able to read 20 articles a month without paying, a limit that company executives said was intended to draw in subscription revenue from the most loyal readers while not driving away the casual visitors who make up the vast majority of the site’s traffic.

    Once readers click on their 21st article, they will have the option of buying one of three digital news packages — $15 for a month of access to the Web site and a mobile phone app; $20 for Web access and an iPad app; and $35 for an all-access plan.

    And read the story here on Mashable and here on  The Huffington Post.


    Here is an interesting tweet from NYT Reporter Brian Stelter.


    There is a lot of buzz around this pay wall from the NYT.
