💡 Digitale medietendenser

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

Podcasting

Podimo er gået i luften

Med mindre du har levet under en sten (eller bare haft virkelig travlt) har du nok set, at den nye podcast-app/-platform Podimo gik lige i ugens løb.

Journalisten spurgte Tav Klitgaard fra Zetland og mig om vores umiddelbare indtryk:

Hos Kommunikationsforum har jeg skrevet en analyse, hvor jeg samler op på noget af det, der tidligere er blevet sagt og skrevet og giver mine “two cents”:

Podimo: podcasts med et pricetag

Og der er blevet sagt og skrevet meget om Podimo rundt omkring. Tjek blot en Twitter-søgning på navnet.

Podimo fjerner JP-podcasts

MediaWatch:
“‘Redaktøren på Jyllands-Posten skrev til mig i går, og jeg svarede og beklagede, at vi var kommet til at lægge deres indhold på tjenesten. Vi havde heller ikke taget Politikens indhold, fordi vi ikke havde lavet en aftale med JP/Politikens hus. Så det var en fejl fra vores side, at Jyllands-Postens var kommet med,’ siger Morten Strunge, som håber og forventer, at der vil komme en aftale på plads med mediehuset.”

Podimo-stifter regner med 250.000 abonnenter

Computerworld:
“‘Det gør man ved at skabe en masse indhold, som folk ikke kan leve uden. Og ved at skabe en platform, der er så god, at folk ikke kan leve uden den,’ siger [Morten Strunge] til [Politiken].”

Google fortæller mere om fokus på originalt indhold

Global Editors Network:
“The first step in addressing original reporting is to understand the changes in an evolving cluster of stories and understand the nature of those deltas — additional fact-based coverage? Analysis? Commentary? New media assets? Etc etc. What are the ‘signals’ that indicate an original report? Or a component of original reporting? Does it have some or many quotes? Are the quotes unique or redundant with other stories? Is there further ‘factual’ information and/or relevant analysis? Are there attributions to other parties?”

Digiday:
“Another benefit to YouTube is that there’s a longer shelf life to videos that news publishers don’t always enjoy, said Bennett. On YouTube, typically 50% of the views are not in the first 24 hours, unlike on news sites where 80% of the views tend to be in the first 24 hours.”

Nyt AP-værktøj vil standardisere datajournalistik

Poynter:
“It sounds like an arcane, almost bureaucratic problem, but the structure of data journalism is often a Wild West in need of a lasso. Data journalists rely on multiple programming languages and countless processes and techniques to get their jobs done — rendering collaboration between newsrooms or even individual journalists an exercise in translation.”

Sådan kæmper Internet Archive mod misinformation

Financial Times:
“Since the 2016 US election, as fears about the power of fake news have intensified, the archive has stepped up its efforts to combat misinformation. At a time when false and ultra-partisan content is rapidly created and spread, and social media pages are constantly updated, the importance of having an unalterable record of who said what, when has been magnified.”

Her kan du læse nogle af ugens historier og tendenser indenfor forretningsudvikling i mediebranchen. Altså det, der handler om at tjene penge.

SEIN har brug for crowdfunding for at overleve

Indiegogo / SEIN:
“Ud af en voksende frustration over at blive talt om og til, men aldrig med så SEIN dagens lys for 2,5 år siden. SEIN er et webmagasin, et fællesskab og en forening. Vi lever på vores passion, men nu har vi svært ved at overleve! […]

SEIN startede i sin tid, fordi der var brug for et medie, hvor vi unge kunne komme til orde på en anderledes og meningsfuld måde. Det var vi heldigvis ikke ene om at synes, og i dag er vi vokset utroligt meget. Det er selvfølgelig helt fantastisk, men virkeligheden banker på døren, og vi kan ikke få det til at løbe rundt.”

US-medier mander op på marketing-profiler til abonnement

Digiday:
“This year, publishers ranging from The Atlantic to The New York Times to The Daily Beast have hired or begun hunting for growth marketers, media strategists and digital ad buyers to support their growing subscription offerings. The growth spurt is tied to new needs brought on by the pivot to paid, as publishers need to master the kind of growth-marketing chops that’s common at fast-growing direct-to-consumer brands that depended on customer acquisition, particularly through Facebook, Instagram and Google ads.”

Sådan lykkes The Daily Beast med at sænke abonnementsprisen

Digiday:
“Over the past 15 months, the price of a Beast Inside membership has dropped 65%, to $35 per year or $4.99 per month. That offer is the fourth pricing combination that the Beast has tested since launch, but it delivers the best combination of conversion rate and retention; conversion rates on the $35 offer were five times higher than the rates on the membership’s initial price points of $100 per year or $9.99 per month.”

HBRs succes med registreringsvæg

The Bylin:
“Eventually, HBR rolled out what’s called a registration wall. Unlike a paywall, which forces a reader to subscribe, a registration wall merely requires a user to create a free account to continue reading. […]

It didn’t take long for email signups to come pouring in. Over the next few years they ballooned from 500,000 to over 3 million. And it soon became clear that these logged-in users were much more likely to convert into paying subscribers.”

Vil Apple blokere for annonce-tracking i apps?

Digiday:
“There is good reason for the jitters. Apple has taken a no-nonsense approach to third-party ad tracking, blocking all third-party cookies on Safari, putting the kibosh on all programmatic monetization on the Safari browser. Many ad tech vendors see a clear path to this jumping to ads in-app on iOS devices.”

“Mail Metro Media, the commercial division of MailOnline and London free sheet The Metro, began implementing the standardized ID from DigiTrust, a non-profit consortium, and the universal identifier from tech company ID5, in June. Since then, MailOnline has seen a 30% increase in CPMs on Safari, according to Tom Pickworth, head of technical operations, commercial, Mail Metro Media. Fill rate was slightly higher, via Rubicon, a member of DigiTrust, which increased by 1.4%, added Pickworth.”

Hvad har Googles ‘first price’-ændring betydet for udgivere?

Som regel fungerer programmatiske auktioner på den måde, at den med det højeste bud vinder, men betaler det, den med det næsthøjeste bud bød.

Google har nu i nogle måneder testet, at den med det højeste bud betaler det, vedkommende bød.

Digiday:
“Since then, some publishers have seen CPM spikes between 9% and 50% on display inventory as a direct result, in the first few days post-full rollout, according to publisher sources. Other patterns, such as volume of impressions traded via header bidding, are less consistent across each publisher. Several have seen a bump in impressions traded of more than 10% since the days before the rollout, while others have seen the volume of impressions drop despite CPMs rising.”

Deepfake kan give anonymitet og bevare ansigtsudtryk

MIT Technology Review:
“The algorithm extracts information about the person’s facial expression by finding the position of the eyes, ears, shoulders, and nose. It then uses a GAN, trained on a database of 1.5 million face images, to create an entirely new face with the same expression and blends it into the original photo, retaining the same background.”

Apple-studie: Vi vil gerne småsnakke med vores digitale assistenter

VentureBeat:
“Perhaps that’s why in a paper (“Mirroring to Build Trust in Digital Assistants“) accepted to the Interspeech 2019 conference in Graz, Austria, researchers at Apple investigated a conversational assistant that considered users’ preferred tones and mannerisms in its responses.

They found that people’s opinions of the assistant’s likability and trustworthiness improved when it mirrored their degree of chattiness, and that the features necessary to perform the mirroring could be extracted from those people’s speech patterns”

Tre spørgsmål til dig, der vil starte et “innovation lab”

Harvard Business Review:
First, what’s the vision for the lab? Unless the incubator has a clear, well-defined goal, measuring success will be difficult. Second, what happens when an idea born in the lab needs to be developed further? Maybe the project will go back into the core business, or get passed on to an accelerator — it doesn’t necessarily matter as long as everyone knows the process. Third, how will you staff the lab? The best R&D hubs have both new talent from outside the company and insiders who know how the firm works. That mix of skills and knowledge will help ideas come to life and keep growing beyond the lab’s walls.”
