How websites within the public service and public sector use Twingly

Today we continue our series of blog posts showing you how websites from different online sectors are using Twingly to enhance their content with opinions and comments from the blogosphere. We described earlier how e-commerce websites have implemented the Twingly widget and highlighted how company, event and organisation websites use Twingly. This time we will focus on the websites from the Swedish public sector and introduce you to what public radio, public television (yep even they are Twingly partners) and two other official, non-commercial websites are doing with Twingly technology.

SVT
SVT is the the Swedish public service television. One of their many TV productions is called Debatt, a talk show discussing important news and issues related to the Swedish society. The Debatt website regularly publishes opinion pieces by Swedish politicians, media experts and journalists surrounding the ongoing debates (like this one). Each of those articles is accompanied by the Twingly Blogstream widget, showing blog posts linking to the article. By doing that SVT gives users the chance of either commenting directly below the articles or publishing their response in their own blogs and becoming part of the discussion. SVT are also using the Twingly Blogstream widget on other parts of their website, for example below every article on their news section.

Sveriges Radio
Even Sveriges Radio which is Sweden’s public service radio has implemented Twingly Blogstream on parts of its website (example). The widget is located below articles and shows the latest incoming links from blogs. Easy and straight-forward!

Europaportalen
Europaportalen is the leading, independent platform for the Swedish debate about everything concerning the European Union (EU) and Europe. Similar to how Sveriges Radio has implemented Twingly Blogstream even Europaportalen uses our technology to monitor the blogosphere and to show who has linked to the site (example).

Lärarnas Nyheter
This website is targeted at teachers across Sweden, published by the Swedish teacher association and meant to offer any kind of news and information teachers need for their daily work. We find that Lärarnas Nyheter has chosen a very neat way of adding the Twingly widget to their site – it’s included in a dynamic navigation on the right side of the homepage and shows the articles that have been getting the most buzz from the blogosphere. The widget is also located on each article page (example) listing the recent incoming links.
