Report: WSJ.com to get social networking makeover | News - Digital Media - CNET News

The WSJ goes social

The Wall Street Journal's Web site is getting a makeover, borrowing a page from social networking.

The newspaper site is expected to launch "Journal Community" on Tuesday to allow paying subscribers to comment on individual stories, create discussion groups on specific topics, and ask one another for advice, according to a report Sunday by the Associated Press. Like social networks Facebook or MySpace, the community will allow subscribers to create personal profiles. But instead of missives on favorite movies and music, these profiles will feature subscribers' their real names, job details, and interests, according to the report.

Meanwhile, BusinessWeek's Business Exchange is in beta

Having access to the best information at the right time is key to your professional success. The goal of Business Exchange is to provide users with actionable insight delivered in a workflow tool that will increase your productivity.

Business Exchange is a Web site that allows users to create business topics, collaboratively aggregate content from the entire Web and connect with other business focused users around these topics.
