Why the Financial Times is going vertical on WhatsApp to drive subscribers – Digiday

The Financial Times has been broadcasting stories through WhatsApp for the past year as a way of reaching new readers, growing loyalty and driving people back to the FT’s site, where they are more likely to subscribe. During that time it has honed its content strategy to push out more specific market-related stories, rather than general news, and has found that people who access the FT’s journalism through WhatsApp are […]

Seminář o ČTK v říjnu 2011

Pravda, uplynulo už mnoho vody od doby, kdy jsme uspořádali tento seminář. Přesto bych nerad, aby zapadl. I na našem webu (www.ctk.cz) je na něj odkaz poměrně hodně zapadlý a kdo neví, co hledá, tak ho sotva najde. Myslím, že je dobré na něj upozornit i s takovýmto zpožděním i proto, že v některých rozhovorech, které jsem po něm dával, jsou na něj odkazy.   Seminář jsme uspořádali proto, že […]

Kachny, teorie spiknutí a fakta o ČTK

Přišel mi e-mail od studentky jedné z mediálních fakult, že prý dopisuje diplomovou práci o Četce.

Naming the names

There is a new law coming to force in the Czech Republic that is going to complicate work for the Czech journalists to a considerable degree (which no-one would be too concerned about) and at the same time limit what the public will be allowed to know. It deals with naming the names. The motivation for the law is commendable in as far as it seeks to protect underage victims […]

The “Top Ten” in 2008 season

So we got rid of Santa and now there are a few days for producing the Top lists for 2008 in everything. Do not wory, I am not going to add my take on it. I do what I do best and link to the rest 😉 So I thought it might be an interesting idea to provide links to various lists connected with media, that I found interesting. Enjoy
