Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - Do You Have a Relationship With your Digital Publication?

« How to Read the Groundswell and Increase your Business Success Threefold | Main | Is Your Business Lifestreaming? »


@Nathan - I prefer the term digital as well. It's a broader definition.

@Martin - the reason why I asked is that many publications measure their success story by story. We have discussed the fragmentation of media in the past. Could news organizations act as disaggregated networks? We talked about it here I'm with you on not knowing which part will provide value.

As things stand, I would rather pay for an entire publication, rather than single sections. However, I have commented on this before (on Nick Burcher's blog) and would accept a well thought out solution:

How do I know which part of the publication will provide value to me? I don't have a clue, but I don't want to buy every physical publication just so I don't overlook an interesting story.

So currently, when it comes to newspapers and some magazines, I subscribe to full RSS feeds and treat these feeds like a leaf through. I get the same satisfaction flicking through 100 stories and finding one or two great articles.

Apparently the preferred nomenclature is "electronic editions" (see also Rexblog who blogs and publishes and BPA Worldwide)

"Digital editions" makes sooo much more sense.

Irrespective, great post. I hope my red herring was informative...
