Gather gathers cash

Gather.com, the social news sharing site today closed another round of funding. Gather raised $10 million in the funding round led by Pilot House Ventures that also included Hearst Corp. and McGraw-Hill Cos.

Like Newsvine and other related sites, users can submit news stories, create groups, invite users,…….. In return users get Gather points which can  get you $.02 per point. I am was not able to find a clear agenda on how you can go about earning points at Gather.

Although Gather has been around for a long time now but the user interface is one of the least user friendly that you can find around on the web. I can go on for a long time discussing these UI issues, but I think I will save my time and work on something more better. As for my message to Gather.com — Can you focus on the user please?
