What We Do
Why It’s Important To Build A Community

Build A Community, Not An Audience
Facebook's recent shift away from highlighting brand content must serve as a loud wake-up call to business leaders who deluded themselves into believing that Facebook’s community was their proprietary community. It never was.
Facebook’s changes are just the tip of the iceberg—the first battle in the coming war against the noise that is polluting social media platforms and corrupting their original mission: to provide a platform for meaningful conversation and connection.
Why Professional Organizations Are the Next Big Frontier for Publishers
Today’s readers demand more from online publishers than ever before. The number of people using ad-blockers rose 48 percent in the U.S. by mid-2015. More users are now accessing content on mobile than desktop, and an increasing number are discovering content on non-publisher-owned platforms like Apple News, Facebook’s Instant Articles and Twitter Moments.
To keep readers engaging with their content - and effectively monetize those interactions - publishers must adapt quickly.
