Today we launched the new geotargeting feature mapNews on YiGG. Every news can be enriched with its location code, a city or even a combination of a city and a streetname, like ‘München, Lindwurmstrasse’. On the detail view of every news users can see where all those YiGGers interested in this news come from, by opening the google map via the ‘Karte’-link.
Then there are two tabs ‘Aktuell’ and ‘Beliebt’. ‘Aktuell’ shows the latest news referring to that location. ‘Beliebt’ shows the most yigged news referring to that location. Additionally the tab ‘Stimmen’ leads to a geographical distribution of YiGGs as we have shown them before.
A nice geo-feature which clearly needs to be expanded. Waiting for feedback 😉
