Thanks for posting these web channels, Will. I’d be curious to see how GovLoopers would compare these aggregated news feeds at GovExec vs. GovFresh vs. FedScoop.
I think if you take a look you will see that this is really a different animal. FedScoop does not aggregate by agency at all – they just post links to the headlines from selected publications on one site. GovFresh only aggregates limited news sources and tweets. News by Agency pulls ALL tweets about a given agency and scans hundreds of news sources. Most importantly, however, News by Agency prioritizes the content so that the most relevant items are featured so feds can scan the top headlines for their agency if they are short on time – no other site does that. Feds can also go as deep as they want to see all the chatter happening about their agency on the Web.
