This review:

  • Introduces the company and product and giving his view on the value the product offers.

  • Looks at the breadth of content available in traditional and social media through the global news aggregation service, including exclusive content and geographical spread. Growth in content acquisition since Factiva was last reviewed in Jinfo is also covered, including its deepening relationship with fellow News Corporation company, Storyful.
