Microsoft's latest app in the Windows Phone Store is a beta called Social News, which has been designed to not only allow users to share their local events with others but to possibly have those stories posted for a larger audience to read.
Here's the breakdown:
"With Social News you can create and publish your own articles, liven up your articles with content like photos and video, respond to news requests created by professional media partners, and get a chance to get your articles published by professional media. You can also easily search for interesting local events using the map view or tune in for the most liked and commented top stories or just browse what your friends have been writing."
