Families spend time discussing news and sports among themselves. Families with different cultural backgrounds have different interests. It would be a good idea to have an application that can store news items that are read by the majority of the family members on their cellphones. The application may not store all news items read by each member but only the specific ones read by most. This information will be stored anonymously. Each member who signs up within this family group will then get a text message with a summary of the news item.
This can be a web application where family members can sign up giving their cellphone number and preference of news items he or she prefers to receive as a text message. The web application will then create and send these personalized text message to family members requesting them.
