Telegraph partnering with online sites

The Telegraph Group in the UK, publishers of the The Daily Telegraph seem to be embracing the Web world. Take a look at their offers page.

They’re offering services, using 3rd party web providers, like Wesabe for managing your finances, and partnering with Specsavers to tell you what kind of spectacles to choose next.

I don’t know how comfortable one would be, giving a newspaper more and more information (I didn’t find a privacy clause) about oneself, but this is the Facebook-era, where information is mostly free. Wesabe also mentions that with 22.9 million unique visitors to the Telegraph website in September alone, it could mean great growth for the site.

It would be interesting to see The Age/Sydney Morning Herald partner up with some local Aussie startup sites… similarly in Malaysia, now that the newspapers are moving to a more online fashion.
