NewsleSo far there’s no easy way to follow the news our friends, colleagues or other people of interest make; short of regularly googling names or setting up a news alert. Now Newsle has been created to make this job a little bit easier.

Newsle works by importing your Facebook and LinkedIn friends list and then using a sophisticated algorithm to scour the web for news about people on your list or any additional names you input into the service.

At the moment Newsle is in private beta but so far analysts are impressed by its capabilities. It does good work of eliminating duplicate news items, selecting ‘important news’ items though including all relevant if potentially duplicated items in “all news”.

However it may not be that useful with respect to the long friends’ lists many people have on Facebook. The average man on the street is unlikely to pop up on news feeds at all. LinkedIn may prove a different matter as prominent people could end up in corporate news releases or other press items and keeping track of these could be useful in a business setting.

If LinkedIn and Facebook contents do not deliver much of interest keeping track of public figures might. Newsle makes it easy to add the names of public figures to your list in which case it does a good job of updating you with the latest on your favorite celebrity or whoever else you choose to follow.
