    Interactive news graphic puts readers in the picture

    Posted By Alastair Otter

    There is only one story right now and that is the death of Osama bin Laden. So how to stand out from the crowd?

    The New York Times has a new take on reader feedback in the opinion poll it published today. The mood-meter (for lack of a better description) allows users to add their own feedback on the graphic of how people feel about the assassination of Bin Laden. Users can plot their own feelings on the axis and add a comment to their particular spot. It’s simple, elegant and interactive and renowned journalism professor @JayRosen_NYU calls it “mood journalism“.
