One more option for self-published journalists: Kindle Singles | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it

Here's one more reason why you need to be looking at eBooks as part of your "I'm-a-journalist-who-needs-to-make-money" career strategy.
Kindle Singles.

Kindle Singles is Amazon.com's effort to promote shorter-length eBooks, between 5,000 and 30,000 words. Prices are low, too - Amazon requires that eBooks selected for the Kindle Singles program be listed between 99 cents and $4.99. However, all titles listed under Kindle Singles are eligible for a 70 percent commission to authors instead of the 30 percent commission it offers for titles priced under $2.99.

MadKlout epidemic – monopolizing with flawed algorithm. Time to boot Klout out

MadKlout epidemic – monopolizing with flawed algorithm. Time to boot Klout out | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it

Klout’s marketing strategy is to prematurely establish themselves as the only authentic providers of social ratings. To my despair, all the media outlets such as WSJ, CNN, Bloomberg, Silicon, Forbes are not analysing Klout objectively. Instead they just dance to Klout’s marketing tune without actually looking past the smokescreen of public relations. With all this coverage Klout seems to have set its eyes on establishing itself as a monopoly in the social ratings market by over speeding ahead of proving its credibility and true accuracy.

Wasting Time on Klout and Influence Metrics

Yet great scores — the sign of someone who has had success — don’t necessarily produce context or relevance to an individual community or on a particular issue. Frankly, the most influential people in any given sector aren’t on social media. They hire people as community managers.
