Google News added another feature to their already numerous functionalities. You can now look at the development of a story.

Google added a graph wich not only shows the number of sources regarding the story, but Google also added a timeline which shows the development of the story (number of sources covering the story) over time.

The help center says "Our grouping technology takes into account many factors, such as titles, text, and publication time. We then use various clustering algorithms to identify stories we think are closely related,"

This feature can be very usefull for for example press agencies and pr-agencies who can now track how a story is developing and act on it.

So far the feature only seems to work on stories with high numbers, only in certain clusters.
