EQUIPPING YOU FOR THE FOURTH REVOLUTION IN JOURNALISM Yet again, journalism is undergoing radical change.

First there was print, and then came the first three revolutions: • Radio • Television • Online Each caused radical upheaval in their turn. The fourth revolution, which is taking place right now, is being caused by mobile technology.

3 Unusual Lessons We Learned by Studying Over 16 million Posts (And 100,000 Brands) on Social Media - The Buffer Blog

3 Unusual Lessons We Learned by Studying Over 16 million Posts (And 100,000 Brands) on Social Media - The Buffer Blog | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it

Andy Bull's insight:
The post shows video is underused: "the data shows that video is still underutilised by many brands. On Facebook, video gets three times as much engagement as any other kind of content, but in the 7 posts that brands share on Facebook per week, far less than 1% are videos.

Twitter to Stop Counting Photos, Usernames Toward Character Limit

Twitter to Stop Counting Photos, Usernames Toward Character Limit | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it
Twitter will soon allow users to include more content in their tweets, even without increasing the platform’s 140-character limit. Specifically, Twitter announced four new features coming to the platform over the coming months, including two tweaks to the way a tweet’s character count is measured.
First, @names will no longer count toward the 140-character limit, so users can add more words to their replies without removing usernames from a conversation.In addition, media attachments such as photos, GIFs, videos, polls and quote tweets will no longer count toward a tweet’s character limit. This feature was originally rumored by Bloomberg earlier this year.
Next, Twitter will introduce the ability for users to retweet and quote tweet their own tweets.
Finally, Twitter is removing the need for users to place periods before usernames when they want replies to be viewed by all of their followers. Instead, Twitter said, “New tweets that begin with a username will reach all of your followers … If you want a reply to be seen by all your followers, you will be able to retweet it to signal that you intend for it to be viewed more broadly.”...

Facebook’s interactive map is the best way to discover live videos streaming in real-time | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it
In February, Facebook began rolling out live video streaming capabilities to users worldwide – meaning that there’s bound to be someone streaming video of themselves somewhere on the planet at any given point in time. At its F8 developer conference, the company unveiled a number of new features for Facebook Live, including reactions, comment replay and filters. But the most useful of them all is this interactive map that shows you streams that you can tune into in real-time.

Want to Know What Facebook Really Thinks of Journalists? Here's What Happened When It Hired Some. | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it
Depending on whom you ask, Facebook is either the savior or destroyer of journalism in our time. An estimated 600 million people see a news story on Facebook every week, and the social network’s founder Mark Zuckerberg has been transparent about his goal to monopolize digital news distribution. “When news is as fast as everything else on Facebook, people will naturally read a lot more news,” he said in a Q&A last year, adding that he wants Facebook Instant Articles to be the “primary news experience people have.”

Leaked Facebook manual shows editors have near-total control over trending topics | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it
A leaked manual intended for Facebook employees working with its trending news module shows that while algorithms play a big part in the social network’s curation of events, it’s the human editors that have the final say. Published today by The Guardian, the document also says that human editors can inject topics into the trending bar manually to either replace another topic or to add a new one. The guidelines state that editors can only manually add topics that are already appearing in its ‘review’ and ‘demo’ tools, even if it’s deemed newsworthy. The surfacing of the document is sure to…
