NineMSN Program Manager Paul Keen has written about a new NineMSN site feature that has the potential to dramatically improve the news reading user experience on their site.
They call it the "What's Happening Now" module. Think Facebook News Feed for a news site. It logs and lists events such as new stories, first comments and other changes to the site in 'real time' in a reverse chronological order.
This is another example of how flow based presentation can improve visibility and usability when it comes to consuming large quantities of content/interactions.
Well done to Paul and the NineMSN team for this innovative approach.
