Kellblog Predictions for 2018 - by @kellblog
"The war on facts and expertise will continue to escalate. Read The Death of Expertise for more. This will extend to a war on college. While an attempted opening salvo on graduate student tuition waivers didn’t fire, in an environment where the President’s son says, “we’ll take $200,000 of your money; in exchange we’ll train your children to hate our country,” you can expect ongoing attacks on post-secondary education. This spells trouble for Silicon Valley, where a large number of founders and entrepreneurs are former grad students as well as immigrants (which is a whole different area of potential trouble)."

AdGuard calls out sites for cryptojacking failures
"The company reports that there are around 2,500 downloads of this code per day. This is likely to be for more than just cryptojacking. Downloads are also likely to be used by other cybercriminals for malvertising. It is also entirely possible that some websites are using the code to boost the number of ads that they serve. With many advertisers paying per impression of an ad, there is a lot of interest in improving ad serving."

Study: No Shortcuts From SEO — Old Web Dominates Google Search - by @tomforemski
"The Ahrefs study, however appears to show that businesses are wasting money pursuing SEO as a quick short-cut to attaining first page ranking. Ahrefs discovered that it takes two to three years to attain number one ranking on a keyword. Trust is a relationship that needs to be consistent over time in order to build. There is no shortcut through SEO and it's risky business, IMHO."

Media Disruption: Is the Race To The Bottom Bottoming Out? - by @tomforemski
"The darlings of the new media sector such as Buzzfeed, Gawker, and Mashable attained massive amounts of traffic yet even they were unable to run fast enough to stem the race to the bottom on declining advertising revenues.

Google is also racing to the bottom. Every quarter it reports less money per click than the same period in the prior year. In it's most recent quarter it reported 18% less -- a larger than expected decline. But it beat Wall Street estimates because it found more places to show more ads."

Mark Zuckerberg on Facebook’s future: the spirit is willing, but the algorithm is weak - by @jbernoff
Great freaking blog title... "Analysis: Zuckerberg correctly cites filter bubbles and fake news as the big problems which may metastasize, as he suggests, into sensational, polarized conversation. He’s moved well beyond the statement minimizing the fake news problem that won the Bullshitty Award for most outrageous public statement by a corporate spokesperson. But Facebook moves carefully when shifting its algorithm, because such changes create not just public criticism, but shifts in member satisfaction and potentially, revenue."

Since 2005, after leaving the Financial Times, I've warned that if we can't find a way to pay for professional media then society will pay for it in many unpleasant ways such as a rise of misinformation from special interest groups."

I was hoping that Jay could provide us with some insights on what happened and where we go from here. His answers will shock you. Enjoy the conversation..."

"This expanded the conversation about fake news from just Facebook to Google. Google CEO, Sundar Pichai, told the BBC, “There should just be no situation where fake news gets distributed, so we are all for doing better here.” The BBC reporter asks him several times if fake news could’ve affected America’s election results, especially since many races were close.

They report that he paused for a moment before answering “Sure.”

Facebook is a tech-enabled media company - by @tomforemski
"The difference is in responsibility:

- Media companies are legally responsible for the nature of the content that they publish.

- Facebook has no legal responsibility for the content it publishes because it is a technology platform - it doesn't create the content.

However, Facebook does choose what to put into people's news feeds and it deletes content that violates the editorial policy of its terms of service. Some of this is done by automated tools but a lot of it is done by people."

A 'Tumultuous Decade' Rolls On... More Lost Generations Of Journalists - by @tomforemski
"High-tech media companies such as Google and Facebook are creating the advertising deflation. But they can ride the waves of the deflationary media business models because technology itself becomes cheaper and better; and it scales and changes faster than people.

Traditional news media relies on people and original reporting and creativity — a newspaper would not print screenshots of a rival newspaper — the Googlebot does and its why its ads are cheaper."

Media Disruption Accellerates As Paper Ads Plunge - by @tomforemski
"With all our visionaries and tech geniuses we still have not figured out the innovation that will enable us to monetize and sustain professional news organizations.

- Digital advertising is not the answer because it continues to decline in effectiveness and revenues per unit.

- Subscriptions are not effective because they limit the reach of the news stories."

Yet he does not explain the extent to which the trending team makes value judgments—in fact, editorial judgments—about the stories to include or exclude from “trending.” He doesn’t say who uses “trending” or how often people click there. He also doesn’t explain the extent to which Facebook itself guides the editorial team making those bigger picture decisions."

To be precise, Social Media Marketing is just mostly dead
"Here’s some context. My work on social media began in 2008 with large corporate clients who hoped to use social media like blogs and Facebook to energize their customers. So when I ask the question “Is social media marketing dead?”, I tend to think about organic social media as a significant part of marketing. Has social taken its place as a major marketing discipline alongside direct marketing, advertising, or PR? Despite its promise, the answer is no."
