More from this event →

When you rely on Google and Facebook for traffic, you are at serious risk when the algorithm changes, especially when it suddenly moves to deprioritize news. Newsrooms can hedge their audience bets and reduce that reliance by turning to Reddit, Flipboard, Pocket and elsewhere.

This session is designed for:

  • Newsrooms sick of the risk and looking for what else is out there
  • Decision-makers who need more information before talking to other platforms
  • Anyone looking to up their audience engagement and pick up some practical tips
