We spotted a brilliant new client service launched this week by global news gathering agency AFP – AFP Agenda.
The single platform will display events selected by journalists across the AFP global network. It contains practical information about listed events: dates, times, address and contact information, as well as context an background. Users can share event information by email and add events to their calendars.
Users can customise the agenda to their needs, searching the platform by keyword, location, news category or plans for coverage and saving a tailor-made version of the agenda that will be updated in real time. Users can create as many customised agendas as they wish.
AFP Agenda provides a direct gateway to all AFP text, photo, video and graphic production available on AFP Forum, the Agency’s multimedia download platform.
• The service is currently available in English and French in beta, with access open to all media clients. Spanish and German versions will become available in the coming months.
