Today, the European Journalism Observatory launches its newly restyled English website. Soon, all 10 linguistic versions will adopt the new layout and interface, which features a reader-friendly front page, more content, and ultimately more opportunities for our readers. The updates are designed to handle all the challenges of a highly networked digital environment: we’ve expanded our connections with social media, strengthened our internal search engine and graphically restyled our outline. The new website offers a more in-depth and continuous reading experience, creating bridges among topics and fields of coverage.
Readers are given the chance to directly comment on articles via Facebook in order to promote discussion about current topics and events. Via the tag cloud, surfing among articles and topics will be easier and thanks to the new “You may also like” section placed alongside each article, readers will receive suggestions for related work we’ve published on the same topic. More new features are available, so let’s start browsing. EJO’s new site has been designed and implemented by our Swiss IT partner YourMedia. As always, feedback is welcome.
