Here’s what we’re reading this week:
- Briggs Chapter 9
- Adam Ragusea, How Hearken works with audiences to set the news agenda
- Caitlin Petre, The Traffic Factories: Metrics at Chartbeat, Gawker Media, and The New York Times (skim)
- Anne Johnson, Policing The Trolls: The Ins and Outs of Comment Moderation
The Briggs chapter mentions the need for news organizations to build “social capital.” What is social capital? How do the other three readings for this week relate to social capital?
