I’m going to keep this brief, because you’re not going to stick around for long. I’ve already lost a bunch of you. For every 161 people who landed on this page, about 61 of you—38 percent—are already gone.

See Brian, there is no "cut off" for good articles, just user ability and interest to finish the read... yes, the medium helps (in your case you mentioned "listen") whatever works. In any case, believing that a user won't read an article because it is too long is a fallacy. Someone who believes that simply is not understanding their audience and not giving them what they need and how they need it in digital format.
Brian Yanish - MarketingHits.com's comment, July 20, 2013 3:07 PM
As platforms change for content exposure with filters such as curation, on site like Scoop.it, writers need to remember that their readers may be looking for more information than a brief 500 word article because they have clicked through from a filtered source, not a random Google search.
Brian Yanish - MarketingHits.com's comment, July 20, 2013 3:14 PM
Terry, when I look an article written by someone like Avinash Kaushik, I know that what I'm going to read is well thought out with sources to back it up. Not just something written as Google bait. eg. http://www.kaushik.net/avinash/analytics-tips-improve-search-social-compound-metrics/

Reading Comprehension Just as Good Using a Kindle as Reading on Paper

Reading Comprehension Just as Good Using a Kindle as Reading on Paper | CGS Literacy, Learning and ICT | Scoop.it

A significant milestone was passed last August when Amazon announced that sales of books on its Kindle e-reader platform outstripped print sales for the first time. There's no question that e-readers are convenient - you can load a single device with thousands of titles. But some commentators have started to question whether digital reading has adverse effects on memory and comprehension compared with reading from print.

In 2010, a reassuring study in fact found no difference in recall after reading material electronically versus paper. Now Sara Margolin and her colleagues have looked at reading comprehension and again found no deficits in understanding of material consumed on a Kindle or a computer versus paper.
