The Zapaday site is much like major international news calendars like Reuters and AFP with one big difference: its information is open and accessible to everyone around the world. The Zapaday site scans the internet to find pertinent news information from over four thousand sources; in the spirit of open-source collaboration, the site also allows its users to contribute information much in the same way they would to Wikipedia.

The Zapaday site is of seminal importance to the rising field of new journalism. More journalists are ensconced in the world of social media and are working for themselves; a tool like Zapaday is invaluable precisely because this new breed of journalist might not have access to information that is traditionally only available via Reuters, AFP or the like.
