MediaGuardian reports its BBC sources claim various BBC sites will re-launch by March with a new look and emphasis on social media.
Anthony Rose, the BBC controller of Vision and Online, has not commented on any details for the new sites, besides confirming the big role of social networking media and redesigning the BBC homepage. However some new features were outlined, "Among them for example, is the plan to enable users to comment on particular moments while watching and see what other users said about the same moment or simply rate moments with 'Boo!', 'Good!' or 'Gosh!'" says Rose.
Integration with sites like Myspace and Facebook will allow users to create customized news and sharing feeds, while the overall navigation of the BBC news sites will be overhauled to emphasize that their 500+ stories a day are breaking news.
