5 Reasons Why Web Publishing is Changing | ReadWriteWeb

5 Reasons Why Web Publishing is Changing | ReadWriteWeb | Social Photo | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article:

"We're witnessing another sea change in Web publishing.

There's a new edge and it's populated by the likes of Medium (a kind of categorized Tumblr), Branch (the sister site of Medium, for discussions), App.net (a microblogging platform) and Svbtle (an elite network of indie bloggers).

5. Startups Are Searching For Non-Advertising Business Models:

Finally, the new wave of publishing services are all seemingly anti-advertising. There is experimentation happening again on the Web - which is a very positive sign..."
