BBC to relaunch website with focus on social media - Media Guardian

The BBC is planning a radical relaunch of its website to include more social media. BBC sources have told MediaGuardian that the new-look site will launch by March.

Anthony Rose, the BBC’s controller of Vision and Online, declined to reveal specific details last night at the launch of this year’s MediaGuardian Innovation Awards. But he did say that social media will play a big part in the relaunch of the BBC’s family of websites. He explained that the BBC is not only working on a new homepage and the underlying hosting platform, but his team is currently researching “what the next generation in social media will be”.
