A GIANT VIRTUAL PIN BOARD FOR NEWS
As I've mentioned a while ago, Says Philippines is a social network-inspired news portal and at the first look, it will immediately reminds you of Pinterest. Yes, there are a lot of similarities and the concepts seems identical. The one big difference though is that Says Philippines extends from photo-sharing to video-sharing, links with an excerpt texts of an article, making it more complex in terms of sharing capability.
Most of the contents that users post in the site are organized into boards, where each board represents one central topic. Each board can have more than one contributor/s so collecting and sharing of relevant information is easy. Also, quick statistics such as shares and views which differs from the number of views in each post is available to help you take insights of the performance of your board.
