Overview[ edit ] Definitions of complexity often depend on the concept of a confidential " system " — a set of parts or elements that have relationships among them differentiated from relationships with other elements outside the relational regime. Many definitions tend to postulate or assume that complexity expresses a condition of numerous elements in a system and numerous forms of relationships among the elements. However, what one sees as complex and what one sees as simple is relative and changes with time. Warren Weaver posited in two forms of complexity:
A brand buys a publisher 1. Looking Back to Rethinking distribution adaptive channels A Year of Distributed Content, Autoplay Videos and Animated Gifs The defining development of the year was the emergence of new hosted and aggregated distribution models for news. These initiatives by a number of big tech companies see below will impact publishers for many years to come.
The re-launched Apple News 3 also required media companies to publish content directly into their platform while Twitter Moments 4 is also about creating native experiences but interestingly involves reverse publishing that content within news sites to attract more people to Twitter. For publishers, these moves raise huge dilemmas.
If more consumption moves to platforms like Facebook, Google, Twitter and Snapchat it will be harder to build direct relationships with users and monetise content.
Quotes from the survey: Facebook counts views 3s, YouTube 30 s Source: Company data and Activate analysis. Twitter also opened its video platform to publishers, adding autoplay inwhile Google announced plans to white label its video player for free to publishers, a move that will drive far more professional news content through the YouTube network.
Monetisation of video remains an issue for with all eyes on Facebook. Video, social and visual content also defined coverage of the most dramatic news stories of the year including the Paris attacks. In some of the most widely seen video footage, Le Monde journalist Daniel Psenny captured the graphic scenes as crowds fled the Bataclan concert hall in Paris on his iPhone 1.
A Vine video from the Stade de France — with clearly audible explosions — was one of the first verified accounts of the attacks 3. It is interesting to note that much of this video is square or vertical. It was created on mobile phones and was largely consumed on them too. From Paris to Syria and beyond, saw the video enabled internet rivalling television news as the most compelling and authentic destination for live news.
More than ever before, social platforms also played a key role in co-ordinating help and spreading information.
Parisians used the Twitter hashtag PorteOuverte open door to offer shelter in their homes, while Facebook deployed its Safety Check feature encouraging people in Paris to check in via their personal account — for the first time outside a natural disaster.
New Media Giants Consolidate as VC Money Moves On As predicted last year, the global news media companies of the 21st century are beginning to emerge with significant further investment.
Strategist Kevin Anderson says these two players are the major winners in this first round of new media monopoly: Indeed the bubble has already burst for some with the closure of Circa in June, a shock given its reputation as a poster child for mobile-first media.
Circa inspired fresh approaches to news delivery but ultimately never worked out how to make money itself. Elsewhere, we saw a number of high profile acquisitions in the digital space. Flipboard bought mobile news aggregator Zite and then shut it down.
It also holds stakes in Politico Europe, Blendle, Mic. But the news business is as much about people as technology. Liz Heron moved from Facebook to the Huffington Post.
GIFs have re-emerged as a mainstream form of visual communication. Emojis — effectively emoticons on steroids — have done the same. Email newsletters have been re-invented; key distribution channels once again.
Chat apps are the new social media. And platforms are becoming publishers — again.
Nine of the top ten apps are now social or chat apps. Top apps by usage global — from Mary Meeker annual trends slide 47 We predicted more high profile privacy leaks and cyber attacks. The most prominent at extramarital affair website Ashley Madison compromised intimate data for more than 30 million accounts.
Babies and the Next Billion Last year we talked about the importance of internet. Less successfully we predicted that social media would play a significant role in the UK election. In the event, the politics turned out to be so dull, there was little that was worth amplifying.

EY believes that harnessing disruption requires a framework to bring order to the chaos — distinguishing between causes and effects, and prioritizing among a seemingly endless set of disruptive forces.
