Newsonomics: Why native apps still matter in the Age of Distribution

Newsonomics: Why native apps still matter in the Age of Distribution | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it
Social distribution and the open web generate huge numbers — but readers who use news organizations' native smartphone apps are far more loyal and engaged. In today's economics of news, those readers are paying more of the bills.

Brian Steffens's curator insight, August 17, 5:29 PM

The conversation around native apps vs. mobile browser seems surprisingly similar to premium vs. programmatic advertising. What's more important: a well educated, well paid, loyal, engaged audience .. or number of clicks, exposures? I know, it probably shouldn't be an either-or scenario .... but it pretty much is at this moment.

Digg is building a new commenting platform

Digg is building a new commenting platform | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it
The team at Digg is spinning up a new project to improve the way people discuss news on the aggregator.
Andy Bull's insight:

Interesting development in light of this situation, outlined in tthe post: "This year could be a tipping point in how media companies employ reader comments and conversation. A number of publishers have either shut down or put their comments on indefinite hiatus."

Can Digg regain relevance as a place where moderated discussion on news stories can take place?

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, July 30, 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.

How YouTube videos changed the way I see one left-wing commentator

How YouTube videos changed the way I see one left-wing commentator | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it
I used to dislike Owen Jones for a living… at least partially.
Andy Bull's insight:

Good insight into how journalists can use YouTube effectively. This from the post: "Jones’ YouTube videos have changed my view of him, because they allow him to come across as funnier, more nuanced and project his passion for the subjects he talks about more directly at the viewer.

"And there’s another big difference. Unlike the often impenetrable divide between professional commentators above the line and readers ‘below the line’, YouTube – for all its outright crazy commmenters – can inspire a different sense of intimacy and encourage creators to respond to their viewers, both the positive and the negative ones."

'Structured journalism' offers readers a different kind of story experience

'Structured journalism' offers readers a different kind of story experience | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it
“I think it’s a fallacy to think that reporters haven’t been doing structured journalism all along,” says Smydra. By collecting information and choosing what matters, “they’ve just been skipping the step of annotating it in a structured way.”
Andy Bull's insight:

It's certainly worth considering whether journalistic stories need to be told in new ways online, but this from the post seems to me to be key:
