USA Today adds community features and Web 2.0 frills to its Web site. Has it gone too far? Or not far enough?
USAToday.com says it is launching an interactive fantasy football preview package. The package includes Steve Howard's Pig Skinny fantasy football column as well as an interactive cheat sheet for the fantasy football drafts. The cheat sheet provides fantasy football fans with features that include player capsules, in-depth commentary, statistics and rankings of top players. In addition, USAToday said Steve Howard's football column, which begins Thursday, will provide fantasy football player tips, advice on upcoming games, and a listing of the week's Top 100 players throughout the NFL season. USAToday.com is owned by Gannett and provides news and information that includes interactive features such as audio, video and live Webcasts.
USAToday.com will provide consumers with a personal financial-management system developed by eBalance, a financial-data collector. Beginning in July, people will be able to consolidate updated financial information from banks, brokerages, mutual funds and other organizations, as well as manage investments, purchases and assets. The alliance is part of the news site's effort to expand its services. The site already sells books, athletic equipment and travel-related goods.
