State of the News Media 2012

Evidence shows that the spread of mobile technology is adding to news consumption—that it’s actually boosting the reading of long-form journalism. Great news for you freelance writers out there who love storytelling.
People who use mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets, are getting news on these devices, and appear to be getting it frequently. 34% of desktop or laptop computer users now also get news on their smartphones. 27% of smartphone news consumers also get news on their tablet.

But while online audiences grew, print circulation continued to decline. So did ad revenues. When circulation and advertising revenue are combined, the newspaper industry has shrunk 43% since 2000. Here are some of the major trends the study recognized.

Google restablece a Chrome en los resultados de búsquedas | Geekets

Unruly Media era el único sitio autorizado para promocionar a base de anuncios a Google Chrome, pero la empresa pagó a otras compañías y servicios para que enlazaran de vuelta a Google Chrome sin autorización de los creadores, generando así publicidad viral (a la cual se opone abiertamente Google y fue motivo porque se sancionara a sí mismo).

Actualmente, cuando se busca ‘navegadores’ o ‘browser’ en Google, el primer resultado que se obtiene es el de Mozilla Firefox, el cual es seguido por Opera y Safari; se puede encontrar a Google Chrome como el séptimo resultado. Estos datos fueron recopilados por el sitio Slash Gear y es probable que al momento puedan llegar a variar (aunque Mozilla Firefox continúa siendo el navegador alternativo más popular).

Google Chrome deja de ser sancionado por Google. Se termina el castigo de Google Chrome. Resultados de Google Chrome vuelven a aparecer. Google Chrome.

Desde el 16 de marzo, la sanción que Google aplicó a Google Chrome, su propio navegador, fue liberada y ya pueden volver a verse los resultados a través del buscador ya mencionado; el número normal de sitios que tienen enlaces para Google Chrome y su descarga ha sido restablecido.

Blogging service shootout: Blogger vs. WordPress

If you don’t have that expertise, or want to spend your valuable time on creating content rather than wrangling with technical issues, you can opt for a service that hosts your blog for you — for free. These hosted blogging services take care of all the nitty-gritty backend work, and allow you to focus on what’s most important to you: The content of your blog.

They offer pre-built content management systems that make it easy to write, edit and manage blog posts, letting you decide whether to write using WYSIWIG editors or instead insert the code yourself. They also let you switch back and forth between the two when you want.

We pit Google’s Blogger against WordPress to see which service is easier, more feature-filled and better for users who need a simple hosted blog.

There are a wealth of blogging services and software out there — so which should you use? If you’re a business or other professional organization, you probably want to use full-bore website building software that includes a blogging component. However, that type of software requires experience with server setups, HTML code and site management.  Leer más “Blogging service shootout: Blogger vs. WordPress”

¡Ya era hora!: el botón de

La idea es utilizar la palabra “enemigo” de la misma manera que soltamos alegremente la de “amigo”, así que cualquier contacto de Facebook o usuario de la aplicación puede ser un enemigo. Más importante aún, también se puede hacer a cualquier página o grupo en Facebook “enemigo”.
Esto cubre casi todo el espectro social, incluyendo personas, lugares y cosas; y, como pescadilla que se muerde la cola, es una nueva manera de interactuar con los amigos creando alianzas basadas en enemistades comunes.

La mayoría de las redes sociales tratan de conectar a las personas sobre la base de sus afinidades: te gusta lo mismo que a mí, por lo tanto debemos ser amigos.

El profesor de universidad Terry Dean tiene 400 amigos en Facebook, pero también quiere algunos contrincantes en su vida digital, por lo que el mes pasado lanzó un plug-in de Facebook llamado EnemyGraph que los usuarios pueden instalarse gratis para nombrar y etiquetar a sus enemigos, que luego aparecen como tal en sus perfiles.

Information is free. Knowledge is not.

Knowledge is something else entirely. It’s what you get when you combine information with analysis and experience. Knowledge is information distilled down to actions. It can and should cost you money, or time, or something else. If you want real analysis of the news you just grabbed from the Associated Press, for example, you might go to the New York Times and pay (at least after 10 views). To learn AdWords tricks that can actually help you profit, you’ll buy a book, pay for a seminar or hire a consultant.
You must pay for knowledge in money or effort. If you don’t understand this, you’re going to fail.

In business, everyone keeps confusing information with knowledge. It’s a fatal mistake: Information may get you started, but knowledge is what separates winners from losers.

Information is ones and zeros. It’s raw data, or a list of facts. It’s instructions on filling out a business license, or the instructions Google provides when you sign up for Adwords. The obvious stuff. You can often acquire information for free: Go to the Associated Press for raw, un-analyzed news. Or read a ‘how to’ on building your own car. Leer más “Information is free.
