Using google tools to track stories

As we learn about Citizen Journalism, we are exposed to many tools on how to write stories. I just learnt about using google tools like google reader, igoogle and google new alerts to tracks news on the Internet.

Not that I didn’t know how to go about google reader! But I have heard some people say that each day, we learn something new. I have been using google reader to track news on websites and blogs that I frequent. But this year’s Highway Africa conference exposed me to something mega. While listening to  Izak Minnar’s presentation on using google tools to track stories, I came to learn that actually there are so many ways to kill a rat! You can either shoot, set a trap for it or skin it. It depends on which method you want to use! Well it is the same with using google tools to track stories in the www world.
