News Curation in the Social Media Newsroom on YiGG

Inspired by Robert’s blog­post on news cura­tion we’ve start­ed this exper­i­ment. With YiGG we’ve been pro­vid­ing a Social News Plat­form since 2006, where news-addicted users have been read­ing, adding, com­ment­ing on and rec­om­mend­ing news. Some of Robert’s ideas we’ve imple­ment­ed already, oth­ers we haven’t yet. As always, the eas­i­est thing for us would be to devel­op this “cura­tion thing” step-by-step — fol­low­ing the seven ‘needs’ he described in his post. For

Der Journalist, der Nutzer und die Qualität der Inhalte

„User, her­zlich willkom­men — aber nur die, die sich an die Min­de­stregeln von Com­mu­ni­ties hal­ten. Bis­lang gelingt es uns ganz gut, die Mei­n­ungsran­dalier­er im Griff zu behal­ten.“ Frank Thom­sen, Chefredak­teur von stern.de „Es gibt Kom­mentare, die will ich auch nicht für eine Minute unter meinen Artikeln ste­hen haben. Das ist auch ein Zeichen der Wertschätzung unseren Usern gegenüber, dass wir nicht jeden Unsinn freis­chal­ten.“ Jochen Weg­n­er, Chefredak­teur focus.de Zwei Zitate,

UGC Day at Schloss Hohenkammer

Guess who invit­ed to today’s User Gen­er­at­ed Con­tent day at the pic­turesque Schloss Hohenkam­mer near Munich? It was KPMG — yes this KPMG. They even sent a cor­po­rate bus with about ten employ­ees who appar­ent­ly were happy with half a day off. Seven hours packed with inter­est­ing pan­els and high-profile speak­ers were worth it! First, Sven Gabor Jan­szky described a typ­i­cal day in 2017, when we all will con­sume media in a total­ly dif­fer­ent

Web 2.0 at its finest: User Generated Diploma Thesis on YiGG

YiGG user @kartmann uses YiGG to cre­ate a User Gen­er­at­ed Diplo­ma The­sis. He asks the com­mu­ni­ty to vote on six dif­fer­ent pro­pos­als or to sug­gest anoth­er one. Cool.

YiGG with display advertising

Last night we final­ly launched dis­play adver­tis­ing on YiGG with our part­ner Tomor­row Focus, one of he big Ger­man media agen­cies. We chose ToFo since they man­age the adver­tis­ing inven­to­ry of big news web­sites like FAZ or Focus. Fur­ther­more they seem to have a good under­stand­ing for Web 2.0 sites like us, fea­tur­ing user gen­er­at­ed con­tent like news and opin­ions. Dis­play adver­tis­ing is one of the old­est ways to gen­er­ate rev­enues

User Generated History

Today in a Ger­man week­ly: The author scoffs at Web 2.0, Inter­net start-ups in gen­er­al and these User Gen­er­at­ed His­to­ry sites like miomi, mem­o­loop, xakasha or einestages in par­tic­u­lar. In Ger­many inter­net entre­pre­neur bash­ing is en vogue at most times. Media fan­cies itself as the wise coun­cil hav­ing it all known long before. But — think a moment: User Gen­er­at­ed His­to­ry is it. It real­ly makes me cry not hav­ing launched one
