TapIn Launches a Mobile Social Network for News

By: Mathew Ingram | GigaOm

As the news business has gone digital, plenty of media outlets have experimented with things like mobile apps and user-generated content, but not many have tried to take advantage of both of these things at the same time. Now Tackable, a startup co-founded by former journalist Luke Stangel, has launched a mobile app in partnership with the San Jose Mercury News that it hopes will allow the newspaper to take advantage of both the explosion of mobile app usage and the news-generating abilities of ordinary citizens. Stangel says he hopes the app convinces other newspapers that they can benefit from those trends as well.
