Businesses pay to participate in WellCommons. If they do pay, they use the same tools and have the same access as anyone else. We believe that in any community such as health or sustainability, the business community’s information is as important as anyone else’s. In fact, when I started out in newspaper journalism and watched people reading the paper on the bus commute, it was pretty clear to me that the information in the ads was just as important to them as any story I wrote.

About 300 to 500 jobs are posted on Twitter per minute, according to Carmen Hudson, CEO and co-founder of Tweetajob. With that many shared opportunities, the task of filtering information becomes daunting — that’s why we have hashtags.

Let’s step back and look at an old-school device: the police blotter. Many newspapers have de-emphasized it, yet these short crime-related items are consistently among the most read, most talked-about stories in print and online.
