Hubii - Find the Latest News by Browsing a Map

Hubii is a new website featuring a map of newspapers from around the world. Visitors can locate online newspapers by clicking on the placemarks on the map. Registered users can subscribe to the online editions of the newspapers they find. When you subscribe (it's free) to a newspaper in Hubii it is added to your Hubii Mapazine in which you can read the newspapers to which you are subscribed. Learn more in the video below.


Hubii also offers a heat map view of the news that shows where in the world the important stories are emerging at that moment.
