Google and blogs: “Shit.” – Marco.org
Landscaped changed dramatically ~2009/10 forward for blogs/content creators. >> blogs have to be now niche, focused, regular content w engagement (due to algos/ranking), ... // "If you want traffic, Google’s arc makes clear to publishers, you’re going to have to pay for it." Include Facebook. Include Twitter (Promoted Tweets). Include Snapchat (Discover, Linkedin (Pulse). >> All gained sized, thus noise, people gaming the system, ... thus owner changes rules and system for his/her advantage and gain (profit maximization). // // even content curators (by hand) can be 1/2 noise. And the summaries are just shorter bouts of noise to scan through (medium.com, Mahalo) - its like joining the dark force. // Things come and go in waves/trends; thus the next wave/trend could be self-published long-form niche content partially free (The Information, ebooks, Pando) which are remarkable (Seth Godin) // snacking is SO western lifestyle, even for information/news - is lowering productivity/focus

The 'Blue Dress' And The Incredible Scalability Of Content -SVW
The traditional media industry is a people-based business and it usually requires additional people to produce additional media. It's not scalable in the same way as a software-based business, by adding more machines. However, there is a very important distinction about a media business that is usually missed:  Content is near infinitely scalable on the Internet. The Internet was built to scale content in seconds. Other people's servers will gladly carry your content to wherever the Internet ends -- for free! With one story you can potentially imprint the entire Internet! Try matching that performance with a servers and software business, for example, offering a web service.  Back in 2006 I cheekily dubbed this effect: Foremski's First Law of New Media -- Content is infinitely scalable.  I'll tell you the Second Law in a future post!

Facebook thinks you’re too dumb to realize its scientific papers are really just PR | PandoDaily
According to recent studies, almost half of all web-using adults — and 88 percent of Millennials — use Facebook to find news. [...] But this research paper is less a piece of objective scientific inquiry and more the work of corporate-commissioned data tricksters — a rancid pile of pro-Facebook propaganda that derives and frames its conclusions with the sole purpose of making Facebook look good. This isn’t science. It’s PR. [...] the fact that Facebook itself is the one absolving Facebook of damaging public discourse, demands greater scrutiny. And on closer examination, much of the data and assumptions that informed the researchers’ conclusions fail to qualify as sound scientific inquiry. [...] If politically polarized users want politically polarized content, Facebook won’t disappoint them. [...] [SV &its Cheerleader squads in form of bloggosphere] will give lousy corporate data research like a pass — is still exponentially more credible than a rewritten press release at Techcrunch.

In survey of Millennials, 88% said they get news from Facebook : TrueReddit
&! https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=9221228 >> http://www.americanpressinstitute.org/publications/reports/survey-research/millennials-news/?1=2 "This generation tends not to consume news in discrete sessions or by going directly to news providers. Instead, news and information are woven into an often continuous but mindful way that Millennials connect to the world generally, which mixes news with social connection, problem solving, social action, and entertainment."

Facebook Chief Product Officer: The Full Code/Media Interview | Video | Re/code
Facebook Is Talking to Publishers About Hosting Their Content "Cox says one of the challenges for publishers — including Facebook — is that reading on mobile is still a crummy experience. He believes Facebook can make it better. [...] min7-8ish >> people become singular individuals living in their own bubble ... because of Newsfeed ... it doesn't challenge people on their worldview nor world nor thinking." - on.recode.net/1LaHMlT // &! Big Players (FB, Twitter, Google - and their sister companies) are swallowing the attention on the home screen of the phone of the world, now they push for even more control and data over content; to host their works. There is no free lunch. Although FB says it is. In the end, the user pays for it through intrusive targeted advertising. &! on.recode.net/1BL6GI5 Nick Denton 'FB swallows the web and the homescreen.'

Pomplamoose 2014 Tour Profits (or Lack Thereof) | PandoDaily
[A] new paradigm for professional artistry. We’re entering a new era in history: the space between “starving artist” and “rich and famous” is beginning to collapse. YouTube has signed up over a million partners (people who agree to run ads over their videos to make money from their content). The “creative class” is no longer emerging: it’s here, now. We, the creative class, are finding ways to make a living making music, drawing webcomics, writing articles, coding games, recording podcasts. Most people don’t know our names or faces. We are not on magazine covers at the grocery store. We are not rich, and we are not famous. We are the mom and pop corner store version of “the dream.” If Lady Gaga is McDonald’s, we’re Betty’s Diner. And we’re open 24/7. We have not “made it.” We’re making it. [...] Relevant Passion Content vs Interesting Content (Gossip, Celeb, 24/7 News Cycle (C&P Re-Posts & Repackaged ala HuffPo) ... in an age of FB Newsfeed & Co. for discovery. &! bit.ly/1Aqw2ZJ

The Down And Dirty History Of TMZ
“There’s no doubt: [Harvey] Levin absolutely changed the way celebrities function today.” TMZ has been responsible for breaking the biggest celebrity scandals of the last 10 years: effectively ending a 30-year career (Mel Gibson), tarnishing golf’s most sacred idol (Tiger Woods), and puncturing the pristine image of celebrity royalty (Solange Knowles attacking Jay Z). But it’s not just celebs: In 2009, it caught a bank spending millions of taxpayer bailout funds on a lavish party (Northern Trust), and, via spin-off TMZSports, instigated the $2 billion sale of an NBA team by applying the same surveillance to a racist owner (Donald Sterling) once reserved for the Hollywood stars and socialites.

Native advertising remains an awkward — but very necessary — mess | PandoDaily
http://bit.ly/1rRdtax "“We can buy page views… but we can’t buy time spent,” Segrist said, euphorically. The New York Times jumped “full force” into native 12 months ago, according to Tomich. “It’s been incredibly successful,” he said. “Success is limitless with this type of advertising.”" | http://bit.ly/1nZKdcB + http://bit.ly/1rzyfxM + http://bit.ly/1umjzEp + http://bit.ly/1zbHXYd + http://bit.ly/1rzJEMB "Facebook is no longer a social network. It’s the world’s most powerful news reader [...] I no longer go to the New York Times front page to start my day. I get there through the ‘side door.’ Facebook. [...] Facebook drives massively more referral traffic than Twitter, and publishers I’ve surveyed confide that the ratio can be as high as ten or twenty to one.
