News On Facebook: How Social Media Is Changing News Consumption

News On Facebook: How Social Media Is Changing News Consumption | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

Almost half of all adult Facebook users said that they “never” get news on the social network, which amounts to 30% of the adult U.S. population.

Most of those who find news on Facebook are not actively seeking it, according to the study data. Rather, some 78% said that it happened inadvertently -- they were on Facebook for another reason, and a news tidbit just happened to be featured in their newsfeed. Only 22% said they were actively looking for news on their newsfeeds.

Those who consume news on Facebook tend to be younger, the same age group that is much less likely to be engaged with news on other platforms.

The study also found that news consumption on Facebook did not replace other news-consumption activities.

We all need to embrace this if we don't want to be left behind

ExploreCurate's curator insight, November 2, 2013 5:34 AM

I love these pompous graphics images. When you have to scroll, you know their are important. Consumer behavior has always been key. At least for the marketers.

 

Newspapers saw early social media as a threat. Now they need to be friends with monsters like Facebook. Content is king. Distribution is everything. If you are a newspaper. Probably consumer behavior (and consumtion particulary) should be on top of every newspaper agenda.

Facebook doesn't replace our known News-Resources, but it's more and more becoming an additonal News-Ressource for us.

This is a very nice collection of interviews with Sheryl Sandberg.  She discusses everything from issues surrounding her "Lean In" book, as well as her life at Google and Facebook, her childhood, and many great soundbites about life.  

Ken Morrison's comment, July 4, 2013 12:03 AM
ugh. Of course I meant "soundbites" and not 'sandbites'. Either way, thank you for the rescoop!

Top Tech Trends and People of 2012

Here is the textbook that I created/curated for teaching my New Media Technology class during the Spring semester of 2012 at Hannam University's Linton Global College. I took great effort to give credit where it is due. I aimed to show my students how they could access enough free info on the web that was of equal or greater value than the wonderful information found in expensive textbooks. Feel free to share and please support the true authors of this book in any way you can (money, likes, blog comments, links, etc.) I am simply the currator of this content.

If you would like a free tablet-friendly PDF file, just email me at kenmorrison30 @ yahoo.com (no spaces)

Pros and Cons of Social Media in Education, INFOGRAPHIC > Big Universities today, Disruption Tomorrow? | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

Check out the top five schools using social media well, at least today. These are the usual suspects.   ALSO take a look at OmniAcademy and Southern New Hampshire University (profiled in Fast Company.)   These two seem to have more in common in preparing for the disruption in higher education that is already beginning to happen.

The Twitter of Tomorrow ~ the New Yorker

The Twitter of Tomorrow ~ the New Yorker | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

by Matt Buchanan


"Twitter has evolved, particularly over the past couple of years, from a simple, text-based service toward something richer and fuller: users can now embed everything from pictures to Vines tofull-on mini-apps within their tweets. It’s like a stream gradually becoming a raging river. Twitter has transitioned from a technology company into a powerful media company in its own right.


"What’s coming next is a more graphically intense Twitter that is marked by fundamental transformation of its core experience on mobile phones. Within the company, the decision has been to prioritize mobile over any other medium, including the Web, and it will see the most change the most rapidly. Internally, the way the company thinks about apps has shifted: for a time, its philosophy was that its apps should feel as similar as possible across every platform. A couple of years ago, Twitter employees—including Jack Dorsey—frequently invoked“consistency.” In other words, Twitter wanted its iPhone app to look and work like its Android app. But now the company has come around to the idea that its apps should be custom designed for each and every platform, in order to take as much advantage as possible of what each one has to offer."

This is an interesting pseudo-step-by-step blog of how one company used gamification as a marketing step to improve relationships with Facebook followers.
