Spreadsheets are Information Visualization | Digital Humanities at Stanford
"Likewise, too many people deride overly complex information visualization under the assumption that all information visualization falls into the category popularized by Tufte: Summaries of complex phenomena for busy decision-makers. While this is a dominant category of infoviz, it is not the only one, and other categories include networks or maps that require the time and investment that a complex spreadsheet or tabular view of a database might."

Why 34 minutes a day isn't enough for your social media | Articles | Home
"When you’re beginning, you have to take time to identify your audience and track conversations to join. You have to put yourself out there and make your target market know you exist in the social media space. Over time, that workload may shift into customer service, but the actual time spent shouldn’t diminish. In fact, if you’re building a community, one of the measures of success could be how much more work you create for yourself."

What if Quality Journalism Isn't?
"But in the digital world, we have no scarcity and there are no limitations. As such, the editorial model of a generalized package doesn't really work. Instead, we have three other models:

"The Amazon model (the supermarket of intent). Here you start with people's intent, and then you deliver that with the highest form of targeting possible.
"The social model (the supermarket of interest). Here you start with what people are interested in, and then you build your offerings around those interests for that specific individual.
"The niche model. This is what goes into either the Amazon or the social model."

What's the difference between Whisper and Secret?
"Whisper, which has been around since mid-2012, has raised $54 million through several rounds of funding. ($21 million is from Sequoia Capital alone.) Secret launched only two months ago, but has become an overnight phenomenon, especially for the Silicon Valley tech community, whose members like to use it to gossip about their peers. Secret has raised $8.6 million from supporters like Garry Tan of Y-Combinator, MG Siegler of Google Ventures, Ashton Kutcher, and others. It has reportedly held discussions with Facebook to partner."

Taylor & Francis Online :: Routinizing a New Technology in the Newsroom: Twitter as a News Source in Mainstream Media - Journal of Broadcasting & Electronic Media - Volume 58, Issue 2
This study examined how news organizations employed Twitter as a news source, based on information subsidy and gatekeeping perspectives. News content analysis from 7 major media entities in 2010–2011 demonstrated that journalists embraced Twitter as a new channel for information gathering. TV frequently cited Twitter as a sole or a primary source. However, despite active usage of Twitter overall, journalists in both TV and newspapers maintained conventional routines by relying primarily on Twitter accounts of official sources. The popularity of Twitter accounts, as indicated by the number of followers, did not contribute to attracting more attention from journalists.
