New York (AirGuide – Pyramid Media Group) May 8, 2012 – AirGuide has begun crowd-reporting by recently collaborating with NewsiT. AirGuide articles are being used by NewsiT to reach a new and growing audience capturing news as it happens with their mobile phones or the NewsiT Mobile App.
The first in a series of NewsiT assignment starts with our series of articles on the best seats in the air. The story featured this week is “What’s Your Pitch? Best, Worst Airline Seats Ranked”:
Are airline seats getting smaller? And what do you do when that big guy in front of you reclines his seat so far it pushes your knees against your chest?
Help NewsiT and AirGuideOnline.com rate airline seats. Join the story and answer some simple questions.
AirGuideOnline is releasing its latest rankings of the largest and smallest seats on North American airlines. In the rankings for economy class seats, Jet Blue has the biggest seats in its A320-200 short-haul aircraft. Those seats were measured at a pitch (distance between seats) of 34 inches and width (armrest to armrest) of 18 inches.
NewsiT segments can also be found on their Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/newsitnews
This will be a long term collaboration, we strongly encourage you to take a look at their site and personally participate with any comments you may have.

There are several interesting and fun news assignments open at NewsiT.net including our coverage of South By Southwest in Austin, TX this month. If you are attending, or your company will have a presence there, we would love for you to help out with the SXSW story.
Here’s an example of a few of the questions/tasks:
- What’s your marketing plan? How will you measure success?
- How are you preparing for SxSW? What do you want to accomplish?
- How’d you cut through the clutter at SxSW?
So how do you contribute to a NewsiT assignment?
It’s very easy. Just go to www.newsit.net/assignments and sign in. You’ll see all of the open assignments and you can click on any of them to see the associated tasks. NewsiT breaks down each assignment into simple, manageable tasks. You might be asked to answer a question or upload a photo or video. Choose whatever tasks interest you, and do as many as you want.

NewsiT has revolutionized the news gathering process by making it social. By “crowd-sourcing” each story, NewsiT gets a wide variety of perspectives and angles on a topic. The result is a deep, insightful and compelling news story reported by real people; those intimately involved with the issues and folks who are just observing… the more perspectives, the better. Anyone can contribute.
The last step is also a very important one. Spread the word! Tell your friends, tweet the link and reach out to people who might be interested in a particular topic.
