Unique and experimental in its focus, structure and revenue stream, the two-year-old social news-wire project reported.ly uses social media platforms as a home for real-time news reporting and live fact-checking, with a team of reporters based in Europe, North America and Asia, and seemingly deep-pocket support from billionaire eBay founder Pierre Omidyar as part of his First Look Media. But, after garnering enviable sources, a loyal audience and acclaim, reported.ly is suspending operations. Founder Andy Carvin and his team will offer a candid look into many of the issues that newsrooms across the world are dealing with today: how to create a nimble and responsive social team to address breaking news, how to support distributed teams, how to fund social news operations and more.
