Fabrice Marcoux's curator insight, August 6, 2014 2:52 PM

Facebook était condamné, disait-on il y a un an. Et voilà qu'il semble que son orientation ait basculé vers la seconde partie de la mission : non plus être en lien avec ses proches, mais partager ce qui nous intéresse avec le monde.

Mark William's curator insight, Today, 9:28 AM

“Facebook’s mission is to give people the power to share and make the world more open and connected. People use Facebook to stay connected with friends and family, to discover what’s going on in the world, and to share and express what matters to them.”

Publishers are hiring Snapchat specialists

Publishers are hiring Snapchat specialists | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it
Snapchat is the buzziest platform for publishers these days, but it’s also the most high-maintenance, with its own CMS, vertical video requirements and unique features like swipes and disappearing content. That’s why many publishers have dedicated staffers to the app. Whether any of this will pay off is a big open question, but for its early adopters, the chance to build awareness with Snapchat’s Gen Y users make it “too big to ignore,” Laundry Service’s Jason Stein said.

Andy Bull's insight:

From the post: "A group of academics create the top 40 of stories based on how popular they have been online,primarily through social media sharing and viewing. For anyone who thinks such an approach means the UK’s most popular news story is a skating cat, it’s time to think again."

Is Facebook a Better Source for News Than Twitter? - Motley Fool

Is Facebook a Better Source for News Than Twitter? - Motley Fool | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it
The same percentage of users get news from Facebook as Twitter. How'd that happen?
Andy Bull's insight:

From the post: "Facebook is aggressively pursuing news content for its platform with Instant Articles. Publications like The Atlantic and NBC News are publishing 20 or more articles a day in the new format, according to The Wall Street Journal. Facebook has also added features to its trending sidebar, allowing users to sort trending topics by category -- e.g. "politics."

"Twitter has been slow to react to Facebook's offensive, but 2015 has seen an accelerated rollout of new products and features. The company purchased live-streaming app Periscope, which builds on its strength in breaking news. More importantly, it has experimented with curation with its "While You Were Away..." feature.

"Later this year, Twitter will introduce Project Lightning, which will curate content around live events. The project will use human curators with newsroom experience to provide a high-quality feed of photos, videos, and comments around several live events per day. This move toward a feed similar to Facebook's will make it much easier to consume the best news content Twitter has to offer. It will be available to logged-out visitors as well as active users."
