Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Reports on what users experience when interacting with currently available news aggregator services. Five news aggregator services were chosen as the most representatives of emerging trends in this area of research and a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods were used for data collection involving users from the academic and research community. Forty-five responses were received for the online questionnaire survey, and 10 users were interviewed to elicit feedback . Criteria and measures for comparing usability of the chosen services were defined by the researchers based on the review of literature and a detailed study of the chosen news aggregator services. A number of desirable features of news aggregators were identified. Concluded that an ideal model could be designed by combining the usability features of TvEyes and the retrieval performance of GoogleNews.
