Live NATO coverage reported by Associated Press using Scribble’s new Advanced Content Module
Journalism continues to evolve at a rapid pace and a lot of newsrooms are struggling to keep up with the culture of now. ScribbleLive has just released a new feature set designed to tackle some fundamental challenges facing journalists producing real-time coverage.
Last summer we released LiveArticle, a companion to your liveblog that takes the shape of a more traditional article, except you can update it in real time and readers always get the new version without having to refresh the page.
