News: curation meet crowdsourcing

Upworthy recently released it’s new content strategy: “moving from curation to story creation”.

For a while i’ve been suggesting that Metro.co.uk tries out an Upworthy-style “Submit link” option. It might just help us pick up interesting stories that we’ve otherwise miss, or even pick up new stories quicker.

Now i’m wondering if it would better as “Submit an idea for a story” – not just a link to an existing story but an idea for a creative new piece such as “Male nipple of female nipple” and “Here’s what happened when I chatted up men on Tinder using Craig David lyrics“.

It’s a long shot but it might just work.
