Once the web's fastest growing aggregator, Upworthy pivots | Capital New York
hit a ceiling, diminishing returns // Upworthy turns to original content Upworthy plans to pivot from aggregating stories it hopes will get thousands — or millions — of shares on social networks to producing those stories itself. The company has laid off six staffers and hired five writers to facilitate that shift. // https://www.crunchbase.com/organization/upworthy

How Jonah Peretti and BuzzFeed Got to $850 Million | Re/code
BuzzFeed +500 people. Even if you want to slight the company as nothing more than a Reddit repackager, someone has to do that repackaging. But if you’re only looking at BuzzFeed as a media company, then that $850 million might seem optimistic. Last year, people around the company pegged BuzzFeed’s 2013 revenue at $60 million, and now they’re supposedly on track for $120 million. Which means Dixon and his co-workers at Andreessen Horowitz are likely valuing Jonah Perreti’s company at something like 10x trailing 12-month sales. Investors value the New York Times at 1.2x sales. Time Inc. is at 0.77x. Time Warner, which mints money, is at 2x. + Are There Internet Dialects? http://youtu.be/SDPasRas5u0 Transporting Internet language, dialects, memes etc and ideas how to present stuff in an enlightening manner to mainstream. Still, thank god, there is a gap and lets hope there will always be a gap. ++ !! "most revenues come from creating ads for other brands" !! ++ http://bit.ly/1r64hlX
