"If, for a limited time, you go to The New Yorker's Facebook page and "like" it, you will gain access to a new essay from [Jonathan] Franzen that is also available to paying print and iPad subscribers. ... Facebook has become vital to publishers. For many, the social network is among the two or three biggest drivers of traffic, often eclipsing even Google searches and making Twitter look like a ghost town in comparison.... The New Yorker's stated goal of generating engagement on its page couldn't be more sensible, especially as the literary brand, which once seemed to regard its website as though it were a misplaced umlaut that made it into print, invests more and more in its digital operation through its iPad app, blogs and podcasts.

"Several news organizations have started their own Foursquare accounts in order to push their online content to users based on their physical location. ... Having your Foursquare-augmented-reality experience curated by a brand you know and trust might not be so bad. There’s a lot of noise out there; if I’m using Foursquare to augment my reality anyway, maybe I would like to have my pop-ups limited to the things I actually care about. Like, say, information about interesting historical buildings, or a feed of recent news stories linked to the physical locations where they happened."

Slight odd article. Who ever suggested Facebook could be the "savior" of the "traditional news media"? Still, some interesting points: "Facebook’s Pages encourage loyalty to specific media brands and publications. ... This is a contrast to Google’s search model, in which users look for content around a specific topic and are presented with millions of possible choices. ... If it becomes as significant as Google in terms of driving traffic, it will provide a counterweight against the search giant, and possibly give publishers — a teeny, tiny bit — of leverage."

Jeff Jarvis: "I think we may see search fall as the sole or even key means of discovery and filtering of quality content. I see three rings of discovery today: search (Google); algorithms (see: Google News, Daylife); and humans (see: Twitter). Note again that Bit.ly alone causes as many clicks a month—one billion—as Google News. Human power rises again. That’s what Fred Wilson says today when he argues that social beats search, because 'it’s a lot harder to spam yourself into a social graph.'"

John Naughton: "Facebook is the most glaring example of an unsolved puzzle: how to convert social networking into a sustainable business. ... The truth is that investing in social networking represents the triumph of hope over experience. The optimism comes from a feeling that it's impossible to gather, say, 350 million people in one place and not somehow make money..."

"[On-air] talent, reporters and writers are prohibited from having sports-related blogs or Web sites and that they will need a supervisor’s approval to discuss sports on any social networking sites. They will also be restricted from discussing internal policies or detailing how stories are 'reported, written, edited or produced.'"

Chris Anderson: "I read lots of articles from mainstream media but I don't go to mainstream media directly to read it. It comes to me, which is really quite common these days. More and more people are choosing social filters for their news rather than professional filters. We're tuning out television news, we're tuning out newspapers. And we still hear about the important stuff, it's just that it's not like this drumbeat of bad news. It's news that matters."
