Participatory media like social networking services (SNSs) and blogs are currently popular, especially among the youth. It is necessary to focus on the informal learning that is emerging with this media and to incorporate it in schools. In this study, we develop a system that enables us to compare and investigate many articles gathered from different SNSs and blogs. Although this system was originally developed for our learning practices, we believe it is useful for all activities that involve SNSs and/or blogs. Therefore, we consolidated this system and provided it to teachers who use SNSs and/or blogs in their classes.
