newsvine_logo Newsvine is a aggregator of sorts. What a aggregator is and does is collect that the poster considers . That means when you, the poster, has content and places it on Newsvine, that ads to its collection – and ads a link back to the original site of the content.

Newsvine’s contracted with a service this uses called OnlyWire, where the owner of a self-hosted WordPress can configure it to auto-post to as many as different sites – Newsvine is one of those sites.
