Folio magazine reports on a plan to establish a social networking site for journalists.
Scott Karp and Robert Young introduce Publish2.
Scott Karp, former managing director at Atlantic Media and author of the Publishing 2.0 blog, and blogger Robert Young, formerly of GigaOM have announced Publish2, Inc., a social network and news aggregator devoted specifically to journalists.
Participants will be able to capture information that appeals to their interests and collaborate with other journalists in a private context.
Journalists will also be able submit content, similar to the aggregator site Digg, and create their own personal profile page that can feature links to their work.
Wired Pen says that the site, while designed for traditional journalists, also provide membership for “serious” bloggers (not yet defined).
