Metro Plans Global Blogging Network

International newspaper the Metro has launched the first in its new wave of interactive websites.

Metro France represents the pilot project testing the publishers’ plans to operate a series of news sites across the world boasting an array of Web 2.0 services.

And one of its core features is expected to be a blogging network, which will provide local angles on both news and lifestyle matters.

“With this investment Metro will define its own space, where we not only draw on our users’ appetite for relevant news and information but provide a space that is completely focused on urban living and increases the users’ influence,” said Tom Symonds, Managing Director at Metro Interactive.

Metro International publishes free newspapers issued to commuters in 21 countries across Europe and the Americas.
