The 10 Most Disruptive News Apps of 2012 | PBS MediaShift

The 10 Most Disruptive News Apps of 2012 | PBS MediaShift | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

According to research produced by Nielsen, as of 2012 the majority of phone owners in the U.S. now operate smartphones. Accordingly, the growth in app markets for Apple and Android continues unabated, and 2012 brought users a strong list of powerful news and content browsing options.

 

Publishers, in particular broadcasters and newspapers, were quick in releasing apps for the first-generation iPhone and Android handsets, but 2012 was remarkable for the number of great mobile apps that were developed to disrupt news consumption.

 

On the footsteps of startups such as Flipboard, Pulse and Stitcher, we've put together a list of some of the most innovative and refined mobile apps to come along within the past year, along with a couple of existing apps that went through a "rebirth" with a comprehensive redesign. These apps represent improvements in bulk aggregation, the evolution of the app ecosystem that has produced "companion" apps, as well as some potentially disruptive concepts....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

Just an awesome list of news apps worth checking out. Plus there are other suggestions worth trying in the many post comments.

LinkedIn Unveils Redesign, New Features

LinkedIn Unveils Redesign, New Features | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

With its acquisition by Microsoft still several months from closing, LinkedIn is wasting no time revamping the Web site and adding new features to help bolster user engagement. The new features include an “Interest Feed,” aggregating content relevant to individual users, a new platform for its online education service Lynda, and of course the inevitable chat bot.

The Web site redesign gives LinkedIn’s desktop profile pages a sleek new look and layout, bringing it up to date with the network’s mobile app, which got an overhaul at the beginning of the year. The new format includes easier navigation from the main feed, with buttons for things like profiles, messages, and updates from their professional connections, all appearing in the top left homepage.

Like similar features on Facebook and other social platforms, the new LinkedIn “Interest Feed” brings together updates with new content from other users including posts, links to articles, and commentary from thought leaders on the site. Content appearing in the Interest Feed will be chosen partly by algorithms and partly by editors, guided by factors like the users’ profession, industry, and location....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

New LinkedIn features are worth a quick look.

4 Graphs That Illustrate How Facebook and Google Dominate Ad Revenue - MediaShift

4 Graphs That Illustrate How Facebook and Google Dominate Ad Revenue - MediaShift | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Our industry faces a well-known duopoly, with Facebook and Google commanding an ever-increasing share of digital ad spend, both in the U.S. and globally. I recently dug into the data and forecasts available, to better quantify (for my own benefit and hopefully yours!) just how much Facebook and Google are eating digital.

Global ad spend, across all channels (digital, TV, print, radio, outdoor, etc.) is growing annually on average by 5.6 percent from 2015 to 2020, and will reach $674 Billion from $513 Billion in 2015.


The U.S. market will represent 35 percent of the global ad market, reaching $234 Billion by 2020 with a slightly slower growth rate compared to the global average, at 5.0 percent from 2015 to 2020. This is expected as rapidly developing markets in the East and a growing middle class represent new markets on which advertisers can focus.

45% Of U.S. Ad Spend Will Be Digital
33 percent of ad spend in the U.S. was digital last year and that is expected to reach 45 percent by 2020. In real numbers, that’s a $60-billion market growing to $105-billion, with a Compounded Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 11.9 percent.


The growth of digital is more than 2 times higher than the growth of the overall ad market, which represents a tremendous opportunity for digital businesses. More people are accessing content online and more advertisers are spending their budgets online. Will the rising tide lift all ships?...

Jeff Domansky's insight:

Facebook and Google dominate digital ad revenue and here's a look at how the industry shapes up globally.

Mobile apps responsible for 80% of digital media growth | Mobile Commerce Daily

Mobile apps responsible for 80% of digital media growth | Mobile Commerce Daily | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Mobile applications are responsible for 80 percent of digital growth and while they take up a massive chunk of all time spent on mobile, a report from comScore suggests that app marketers will have to work harder to cut through to the consumers they want to reach.

 

According to the report, mobile represents two out of every three minutes spent on digital media in the U.S. If brands and marketers want to capture that huge amount of time consumers spend on mobile devices, they will have a lot to compete with....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

Mobile gets two of every three minutes of time spent online.

Top 17 Places to Spend on Paid Search Other Than AdWords

Top 17 Places to Spend on Paid Search Other Than AdWords | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it
But here’s the thing. When you need to get sales, and do it quickly, paid search is going to pave the way.It’s a lot quicker and less meticulous than building an SEO campaign from scratch.Another reason why I like paid search is because “PPC visitors are 50 percent more likely to purchase something than those that go through the organic search results.”But one trap that many digital marketers fall into is assuming that the only option they have is Google AdWords.Boy, are you going to be surprised....
Jeff Domansky's insight:
Pay-per-click can be very profitable.
