Sharing News Online: Social media news analytics and their implications for media pluralism policies: Digital Journalism: Vol 0, No 0
While the term churnalism in this special issue speaks to the negative impacts of extensive news re-use, one pervasive form of news redistribution, social media news sharing, has had the more positive connotations of creative engagement, political participation and cross-promotion. Yet this reading of commendary culture is, as José Van Dijck suggests, largely ideological, anchored in the Silicon Valley rhetorics that support the data capture, data mining and behavioural advertising activities of social media businesses. Our paper critically analyses journalisms’ increasing dependence on social media news-sharing analytics and the implications for news media diversity. We first examine how sharing analytics function as a novel form of news commodification, influencing reporting and editorial practices, with possible implications for news media diversity. We then map the news-sharing ecology, looking at the interlinked business models, ownership patterns and industrial power of social news intermediaries such as Facebook, Twitter, Gigya, Chartbeat and Newswhip, and how these relationships reinforce the significance of analytics to news production. Finally, we propose how the use of news analytics could also help in tracking the changes wrought by social media news sharing, particularly in developing a media policy framework for monitoring digital news diversity and pluralism.

Internet Goes Crazy with Student Jashandeep Kahlon's Video of Mexicans, Punjabis Dancing Together
PEOPLE -- With the current political climate, there’s nothing like a viral video to bring cultures together.

A Facebook video containing a compilation of clips featuring Mexicans and Punjabis has gone viral, generating over 22 million views in a little over a week. Neighbors from both groups were captured in the middle of the street dancing together to songs from their respective cultures. They were seen trying to learn each other’s traditional dances with the inclusion of some dance battles.

The original video was shared on Twitter by Jashandeep Kahlon, a student and basketball player at San Francisco State University. In his post, he calls it “the best 4th of July” he’s taken part in and even gives a shoutout to his Mexican neighbors. In one of the comments, a user claims that she lives in the neighborhood the video takes place in and that the party captured is nothing out of the ordinary for the area.

Professor Hayduk Discusses Voting Rights for Non-Citizens of United States
TIME -- While there is no data to back up Trump’s claim, and in fact studies have found few documented cases of voter impersonation fraud in recent years, the president’s argument about immigrants is an old one.

In fact, it’s “eerily reminiscent” of voter-fraud claims made during the periods of heavy immigration to the U.S. more than a century ago, says Ron Hayduk, a political scientist at San Francisco State University.

In the early United States, the immigrant vote had not been such a concern. Though American fear of foreign enemies is as old as the nation, as demonstrated by examples like the anti-French Alien and Sedition Acts of the late 18th century, enthusiasm for the country’s brand-new democratic principles was given even greater weight in those early decades. Hayduk’s research found that at various points between 1776 and 1926, “40 states and federal territories permitted non-citizens to vote in local, state and even federal elections,” and that non-citizens were able to hold public office at various points. After all, in the mid-19th century, one just had to be a white, male property-owner to vote, and so-called “alien suffrage” (granting the right to vote to non-citizens) was seen as a way to lure foreign laborers — white, male ones — to help settle the frontier.

How to Grow Your Business to $1 Million — and Beyond

Inspired by Zuck, I taught the team to focus on only one goal per year. Here are our goals for the past three years:

2014 - 1 billion visitors across Sumo
2015 - $1 million ARR (annual recurring revenue)
2016 - $5 million ARR

To break our ARR down into more easily understood numbers, our team dashboard focuses on just one number: Monthly Recurring Revenue (MRR).
