Essay: 'They're Watching You Read' by Francine Prose | Consumption Junction | Scoop.it

What are the implications for readers, and writers, of new technology allowing publishers to know which books we’ve finished or not finished, how fast we have read them, and precisely where we snapped shut the cover?

What’s Next for Native Ads?

What’s Next for Native Ads? | Consumption Junction | Scoop.it

Native advertising is flourishing across social media, content portals, news properties, video-sharing sites and streaming services. Increased mobile use of these venues has fueled much of the growth, since native ads work best in the content streams that people tend to access on smartphones and tablets, according to a new eMarketer report, “Native Advertising: Difficult to Define, but Definitely Growing.”

Perceptions about what constitutes native advertising are as varied as the ads themselves and the places where they appear. There’s still disagreement over basic terminology such as “native advertising,” “sponsored content” and “branded content.” Some make distinctions among those terms, while others use them interchangeably.
