Exploiting Mobile in Surprising Ways

Mobile phones have quickly emerged as the dominant platform for the consumption of news, presenting a series of challenges and some big opportunities for journalists and media organizations. The challenges are well-documented: More readers are arriving via social media than from news websites or apps, often spending less time and developing less loyalty to particular media brands. Simultaneously, the proliferation of mobile devices presents opportunities to deliver rich journalism at a moment’s notice to larger, more engaged and often younger audiences.

Three executives at the vanguard of mobile news will offer tips on how to build and maintain audience on mobile, intelligence on which types of stories perform best, and the importance of authenticity in mastering mobile. Zachary Seward leads product development at Quartz, which recently launched a much-heralded app that offers a newsy twist on traditional messaging applications. Heidi Moore previously directed business coverage at Mashable, which was designed from inception to thrive on the social platforms that proliferate on mobile. And Allison Morrow is an emerging-media editor at The Wall Street Journal, where she oversees the editorial team that curates the WSJ’s pioneering Snapchat channel.
