Study: Social Media Isn’t Replacing Traditional News Outlets at All
Readers don’t seem to care about what organization they’re getting their news from, or what device format they’re reading on; what matters, really, is the news itself.

• While 4 in 10 Americans said they got their news from social media sites like Twitter and Facebook, more than 80% said they also go directly to news organization websites for updates, too.
What You Think You Know About the Web Is Wrong
• Chartbeat looked at deep user behavior across 2 billion visits across the web over the course of a month and found that most people who click don’t read.

• In fact, a stunning 55% spent fewer than 15 seconds actively on a page. One in every three visitors spends less than 15 seconds reading articles they land on.
Ebook Sales Slow, Strategies Shift
• A recent study found that nearly 70% of consumers feel it is unlikely that they will abandon print books by 2016, as they have an emotional and visceral/sensory attachment to print books.

• Additionally, 60% of downloaded ebooks are never read in the U.S., despite their perceived popularity.
