Google News Becomes personal



Google News, being still in beta (since 2002), has decided to meet the competition. Starting today, they will allow you to personalize your news feed. Users will now be able to create up to 20 specific sections of the website and distribute their customized layout via email. Here is what Google said about their new enhancement, “We’ve made a number of improvements to Google News that allow you to customize your News front page by creating sections that focus on topics you care about, for instance, your favorite sports team, technology, or celebrity,” reads a Google News page posted Wednesday. “You can also design your custom front page by mixing and matching existing standard sections from the 22 regional editions of Google News from around the globe.”
