The numbers track with traffic trends that many news organizations, including BuzzFeed, The New York Times and CNN, have seen in recent years. In 2013, mobile traffic doubled as networks quickened their pace and the size of smartphone screens increased, Brian Chen wrote for The New York Times.
As readers flock to their cellphones, news organizations have adopted strategies to create a mobile-centric news report. BuzzFeed’s content management system now incorporates a mobile preview to encourage journalists to emphasize cellphone and tablet presentation, and some outlets, such as The New York Times, have adjusted their product development teams to tackle mobile assignments. The Los Angeles Times and The New York Times have de-emphasized the importance of the front page in editorial meetings, preferring to develop a continuous
In a move both opportunistic and commonsensical, The New York Times finally filled its top digital job Monday. Kinsey Wilson becomes the Times’ first executive vice president for product and technology, charged with the huge task of rethinking The New York Times—as a product.
Curiously, Wilson is both an outsider and an internal hire, having joined the Times less than two months ago as editor for strategy and innovation. With this fast promotion he will report jointly to C.E.O. Mark Thompson, who made his final decision on the job within the last two weeks, and to Executive Editor Dean Baquet, who first brought the 59-year-old into his newsroom and the company.

Nearly one half of Syria’s 23 million people have been displaced in its civil war and no group has been as severely affected as children. Children make up more than half of the three million refugees living in camps or makeshift housing and some news reports indicate that children are actually being specifically targeted in the violence.
Originally commissioned by the World Economic Forum and created at the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts, this immersive journalism piece focuses on the plight of these children. Using elements are drawn from actual audio, video and photographs taken on scene, Project Syria employs new virtual reality technologies to put the audience “on scene” and evoke the feeling of “being there.” Through real time graphics from the Unity game engine and the sense of presence evoked through high-resolution virtual reality goggles and compelling audio, Project Syria takes the audience to the real events as they transpire.
On Friday morning, people at the American Copy Editors Society conference will get a preview of some of the changes coming to the 2015 edition of The Associated Press Stylebook. I asked David Minthorn, the AP Stylebook’s co-editor, about those changes and what people might freak out about.
As publishers hammer out the all-important details of their Facebook partnerships, all are aiming to answer this question: Where do we find sufficient money to pay the content producers? That’s the big question here for BuzzFeed, The New York Times, and any and all other publishers who get faint when they do the math of Facebook’s outsized reach. While the goal of making money is a common one, the potential benefits of a broad Facebook partnership may differ for these two companies. The ubiquity game offers different rules to BuzzFeed than to the Times.
Let’s think about those fundamental differences between the two, which can stand in as a proxy for legacy companies on the one hand and digital startups on the other — and how they inform what kinds of Facebook partnership deals may get signed.
The New York Times is introducing a new form of storytelling designed specifically for the Apple Watch, according to a press release, as the newspaper will send out one-sentence stories "crafted specially for small screens."
The one-sentence stories are meant to make it easy for Apple Watch users to quickly learn the important details of a story so they can "catch up in seconds" as they go about their day.
