    Interesting concept. I have a board on current news, so this article caught my attention. My problem is, when you news jack, don't you take the risk of duplicating content? I guess if you do it correctly, it is safe. However, with all the changes Google and Bing have been making to their algorithm, how long until this is no longer a good practice and can hurt your site?

    Anyway, here is a link to the article. Tell me your thoughts on this idea.

    A well liked story can be ethically and legally rewritten. This story can then be shared again via social media. The result from such sharing might bring a flood of traffic, social signals, and backinks to your website. Myself, I see nothing wrong with it, because, as I just said, it's ethical and legal.
