? Facebook tillader igen andre at kopiere features

Wired-journalisten Virginia Heffernan har talt med Sheryl Sandberg og skriver, at “It dawned on me that Sandberg was human […] and that no one human, even Sandberg, could discipline the galactic, epochal spiritual wildfire that Mark Zuckerberg had inflicted on the Internet.”

 


? Kan Facebook hæve kvaliteten af kommentarer?

 

To address this, earlier this year, Facebook started testing a new up and downvote option for comments, which was designed to give users a way to provide immediate, easy feedback on comment quality, in order to keep on-platform conversations more civil and inviting.

? Facebook ruller gruppe-Stories ud

 

Late last year, Facebook began testing collaborative Stories for Groups and Events, enabling members and attendees to contribute, and providing another way to connect with like-minded users. Now, Facebook’s rolling out its Group Stories option in all regions, adding another element to its growing push on Stories use.

I sidste uges Ugerevy kunne du læse, at Instagram har gjort det muligt at dele sine Stories med udvalgte personer. Det kan medier også bruge.

↔️ Instagram tester vandret feed

 

The option seems to further align with the growing popularity of the Stories layout – there’s not a lot to go on at this stage, but the side-swiping process could be optional, enabling users to either stick with what they know and love, or move to an Instagram fully aligned with the horizontal option.

? Her er årest mest populære YouTube-videoer

 

It’s time once againfor YouTube Rewind, which spotlights the year’s top trending videos and music videos on YouTube, based on views, shares, comments, likes, and more. I like it because it reflects the zeitgeist and gives us insight into who we are.

? …og de mest populære tweets

 

Twitter has this week shared its annual round-upof the most tweeted about topics, politicians, celebrities and more, providing a range of insights into the key trends of the year, and what’s of most interest to Twitter users.

? Ros til Twitters annonce-platform

 

Mon ikke Twitter modtager al den ros, de kan få, med kys hånd? Som en, der har annonceret både på Facebook og Twitter, er jeg i øvrigt helt enig. Bevares, det handler selvfølgelig også om, hvad man annoncerer for (om man appellerer til folks professionelle eller personlige liv), men jeg er også glad for Twitters annonce-interface.

Despite not funneling more money into Twitter, media buyers say the site’s ad platform is their favorite to use due to its simplicity and reliability.

? Google lukker messaging-klienten Allo

 

The messaging app was only launched in September 2016, but it was pretty much flawed from the word go, with limited usage. Google was, once again, painfully late to the messaging game.

? Ny platform vil hjælpe medier og influencers

 

Med et værktøj, der ifølge platformen forbedrer dataindsamlingen, vil Apprl give medier og influencers bedre indsigt i, hvor de genererer mest salg og ikke kun engagement.

✋ Fem tendenser, der vil dominere marketing på sociale medier

 

In this post, I’ll go through the expected social media trends of 2019. Some of them are already here, and growing slowly, but aren’t at full hype just yet. Some are big and booming, and expected to get even bigger in 2019.

? MEDIER /TENDENSER

Her kan du læse nogle af ugens tendenser indenfor medier. Det kan være en ny metode eller tilgang eller ny teknologi, branchen forsøger at tage til sig.

 


? Nye nichemedier

 

Da jeg får et års tid siden bad folk komme med deres bud på medieårets 2018, kvitterede Altingets Jakob Nielsen med denne:

Og det må siges at have holdt stik. I år er der blevet lanceret mere end 20 nye betalingsmedier, og skønt de ikke alle er nichemedier er der mange af dem, der er:

Nogle af de seneste er Børsens om finanssektoren og Science Reports søster-site, der fokuserer på bæredygtighed.

 


? Nichemedier tjener penge på markeds-research

 

Niche publishers all claim they know their audiences inside and out, and they are building out new ways to trade on that knowledge.

Google is hoping to address some of these concerns with a new experiment, announced today, that will deliver more personalized audio news feeds through Google Assistant. “We are combining Google News with the interactivity and voice experience of Google Assistant,”

…og der er selvfølgelig tænkt personalisering ind:

“Imagine if you ask for news and get a quick update on the stories of the moment, then you get stories that speak to your personal preferences and interests. It’s like your radio station”

 


? Euroinvester-relancering starter med podcast

 

Berlingske Media skruer op for ambitionsniveauet for Euroinvestor, når ny chefredaktør, Lars Christensen, fra nytår stiller sig i spidsen for en relancering og “kraftig” modernisering af Euroinvestor. Ugentlig podcast bliver første skridt på vejen.

? Apples podcast-statistik har været en evolution, ikke revolution

 

So. It’s been almost 12 full months. Did Apple’s new analytics fundamentally change anythingfor publishers and the podcast business? After checking in with over a dozen sources throughout various corners of the podcast ecosystem, there seems to be a general consensus around the answer: No, not really. But it has brought some positives.

?️ Få af os lever i filterbobler

 

“Media choice has become more of a vehicle of political self-expression than it once was,” Grossmann writes. “Partisans therefore tend to overestimate their use of partisan outlets, while most citizens tune out political news as best they can.”

? Sådan gentænkte The New York Times deres morgen-brief

 

Det starter hos brugeren, selvfølgelig:

Get to know the reader: We followed the morning routine of 30 for a week, which helped us understand their reading behaviors. We found that many readers fall into one of two distinct groups: those who read every word, top to bottom, and those who skip and scan for things that interest them. Depending on the day, readers might move between these two modes based on how much time they have.

? Hør om Quartz’ arbejde med bots

 

In this week’s podcast, we speak to to Emily Withrow, director of the Bot Studio at Quartz. She tells us how the publisher is experimenting with bots, offering their audiences a possibility to interact with the information they receive instead of simply reading it.

? Syddansk Universitet sætter stærkt hold

 

Det er et pænt cool hold, de har fået sat på SDU til deres nye forsknings- og innovationscenter…

Syddansk Universitet har hentet digital chef fra Folkekirkens Nødhjælp til en ny stilling som journalistisk udvikler, der blandt andet skal medvirke til opbygningen af den nye afdeling Mediernes forsknings- og innovationscenter.

Centret, der starter den 1. januar 2019, bliver ledet af Ralf Andersson.

 


? Mindeord over millennial-mediet Mic

 

I Ugerevyen fra uge 48 kunne du læse om mediet Mics fald fra tinderne. Jan Birkemose fra Medietrends.dk har skrevet om historien bag mediet, som han besøgte tilbage i 2014:

Lad os håbe at strategien dræbte succesmedie

En til om Mic:

The demise of digital publishers like Mic has become a cautionary tale for media that relied too heavily on Facebook, changed strategy too many times, and tried to be everything to everyone. For publishers, however, part of the blame can be placed on downward pressure from ad agencies, who, driven by their own shrinking fees and a need to prove their worth, have squeezed publisher margins. But agency buyers say it takes two sides to make a deal — and they’re under their own pressures, which means they’re looking for cheaper rates on undifferentiated, commoditized inventory.

? Nyt studie om betaling for indhold

 

While the paywall was not the most common trigger to start paying for digital news, the ability to read an unlimited number of digital stories was the most appreciated benefit of a digital subscription.

Journalism.co.uk >

(Bemærk: Studiet er udført af Twipe, der lever af blandt andet at hjælpe medier med at udgive såkaldte “editions”.)

 


? Kan du fjerne det indhold, ingen læser?

 

The UK’s Times Newspapers, meanwhile, decided to get rid of content that simply duplicated what was already available from the BBC, which 98 percent of Times readers already use on a weekly basis. “We effectively retired from breaking news,” said Times managing editor Chris Duncan. “Our readers didn’t really value it. So why compete on something our customers didn’t value?”

? Berlingske sælger Sweetdeal

 

Fra årsskiftet er Berlingske ikke længere ejer af dealsitet Sweetdeal, som sælges til tidligere direktør for kundesalg. Medieselskabet skal “bruge alle kræfter på den digitale udvikling af sine publicistiske medier,” lyder det fra koncernchef.

According to Dan Colarusso, executive editor at Reuters TV and Reuters.com, Twitter now brings in “significant revenue,” in line with what his company gets from Google AMP. “In terms of one product on one platform, Twitter is contributing the most,” said Colarusso, but he was unable to share specific revenue details in time for publishing.

? MEDIER /UDVIKLING

Her får du et kig på nogle af ugens historier indenfor den digitale udvikling og teknologi, der enten direkte eller indirekte kan have betydning for medier/udgivere.

 


? Apple Music på vej til Amazon Echo

 

Det går ikke fantastisk for Apples egen smarte højttaler, HomePod, og det er en af grundene til, at de udvider deres musiktjeneste til Amazons højttaler:

Echo devices have steadily taken over the world, with Amazon selling a reported 50 million Alexa-powered speakers as of this summer. Apple Music, meanwhile, has at least 50 million subscribers. Anyone who lives inside the intersection of that Venn diagram has been needlessly hamstrung by the two not playing nice. Sure, they could get Apple Music to play by connecting their iPhone to their Echo by Bluetooth, but that negates the whole purpose of owning a speaker you can shout at.

? 5G: Apple vs. Samsung

 

I Ugerevyen fra uge 45 kunne du læse, at Apple formentlig først er klar med en 5G-iPhone i 2020. Så længe behøver du ikke vente, hvis du er til Samsung:

Verizon and Samsung have announced plans to release a 5G smartphone in the first half of 2019, representing what will be one of the most high-profile US debuts for the new mobile networking standard. There aren’t any details yet on the device itself, but Bloomberg previously reportedthat the two companies were in talks to bring a 5G version of the upcoming Galaxy S10 to the US.

? Rygte: Microsoft vil lukke Edge-browseren

 

Microsoft er på vej til at udfase den udskældte Edge-browser til fordel for en open source-baseret browser i Windows 10, skriver mediet Windows Central. på baggrund af anonyme kilder.

Version2 >

Sagen er den, at Microsoft vil skifte til Googles browser-motor, Chromium. Det er konkurrenten, Mozilla (der står bag Firefox) selv sagt ikke begejstret for.

“By adopting Chromium, Microsoft hands over control of even more of online life to Google”, kan du læse i et indlæg på den officielle Mozilla-blog.

Wired har en interessant vinkel på historien:

Chrome dominates the desktop browser space, notching over 60 percent market share over the last year or more. But in November of this year—as in, about a week ago—second place went to Internet Explorer, at a hair over 11 percent. But that’s just desktop, you say. Fair enough! But even when you combine mobile, tablet, and desktop traffic, at least one metric slots IE in third place, accounting for about 10 percent of users. Edge? It’s at 4.5 percent on a good day.

 


? Ny Google Chrome har udvidet adblocker

 

With Chrome 71, Google is cracking down on “abusive experiences”— buttons designed to intentionally mislead and trick users into taking action on the web — by having the browser’s ad blocker cut off revenue for sites that create these abusive experiences.

? Sådan kan Apples smarthøjttaler høre dig igennem støjen

 

Apple’s HomePod hasn’t won much praise for the capabilities of its integrated digital assistant Siri, but it does have one undeniably impressive feature: the ability to accurately hear a user’s commands from across the room, despite interference from loud music, conversations, or television audio. As the company’s Machine Learning Journal explains today, HomePod is leveraging AI to constantly monitor an array of six microphones, processing their differential inputs using knowledge gained from deep learning models.

WordPress version 5.0 er netop blevet udgivet, og inkluderet i pakken er en ny editor – altså der, hvor man skriver sine tekster. Den nye editor hedder ‘Gutenberg’ og går væk fra den klassiske tekstskrivning og i retning af en blokinddeling, som det kendes fra blandt andet Medium.
