World news at one place

Everyday when I come back from my workplace, the first thing I do is to go through some news sites. It has become a kind of hobby now! I like keeping myself updated with the events taking place in our world.

My preferred news sources are Google News, CNN-IBN, NDTV and BBC. Amongst the four, I like Google News for the way they classify news into different sections like Top News, India, World, etc.They give 3 news snippets under which you come across top news. I do tend to read 1 or 2 complete posts from this page. CNN-IBN and NDTV are good sites to catch on the Indian scenario. Some of their posts are really good. Lastly, I like BBC for the way they present news on their site, it's so professional, neat and it compels you to read more.

Recently, I was surfing and bumped into a news site - World News. I was surprised to see such a neat and simple yet engaging format. Very rarely do you find such sites with such a superior professional feel and finish, it gave me a very good first impression and my urge to explore more increased. As I jumped from one link to the other, I found it more and more interesting!

On their homepage, you will find a news window with the top 10 headlines which is followed below by the Latest World News and Most Popular sections. It works on some code which sources news from most of the major news networks across the world! I read some news post from the links and they were some really good news posts which I enjoyed reading a lot! If you visit it regularly, you'll get a feel of the style adopted by major news networks. I would strongly recommend this site to all aspirant students who really want to enhance their General or rather World Knowledge for various reasons! Trust me, you won't be disappointed.

It doesn't end here, as you scroll down you'll see news by countries, lifestyle, sports, poverty, climate and what not! Further down it has more news and then comes a multiple optional 'News filter'. I tried searching some news by entering keywords like India, climate, travel, etc and got a great summarised search result. Try it yourself in the search box below.


Overall, I would sum up by saying it's a great site for your daily bout of world news at one place! A thumbs up from maktion!
