Future of News’s “3 to read”: Twitter live streams | Facebook wants to be your publisher | Snowden changes how people see privacy
3 to read: A weekly compilation of a trio of stories, videos, and data viz from the past week for Future of News members.
- Live streaming? Twitter jumps in, with Periscope (and don’t forget Meerkat).
- Publishers, get ready to use someone else’s printing presses: “Distributed content” means publishing your content on social, not your own site, and it’s growing in popularity — think BuzzFeed, Reported.ly, and others.
- The Snowden effect: Leaks change the way Americans view privacy, at least a little.
