  • The first time Mark Little explained his vision for Storyful - Digital Times | Digital Times
    in real time and recognise trends as they develop These trends are essentially the new news For example if a million people in Iran are searching for the same topic then that topic is what s most important to the people in that place at that time The same applies if 10 000 people in Galway suddenly start searching for or tweeting about a topic Being able to capture news trends in real time is something Twitter already does but Twitter can often be too dense in content too difficult to manage coherently What Little plans to do is create a real time news organisation that can trace trends spot breaking news items globally and report on them in real time And it s not just breaking news his network plans to cover We want to report on humanitarian issues human rights issues the Arts culture music business sport Any subject or topic that s interesting and can gather audiences A multi platform multi subject real time news organisation for the digital age sounds ambitious How will Little recruit news makers and will they be paid Ultimately we re looking for a new breed of entrepreneurial journalist someone who feels they have a really good idea a strong voice an expertise about an area or an issue what we want to do is provide them with a global platform that will get them beyond a regional or niche market We will also have journalists dotted about the globe who are paid retainers and these can report as and when big issues arise in real time How will Storyful make money To fund a start up like this obviously takes some serious pockets Who are the investors I don t mean to be cagey but part of the problem I had in RTÉ was I couldn t approach investors because I was on Prime Time and it could be seen as a conflict of interest with certain people in the investment community it just wasn t possible We have enough money to build the prototype get it out there show it In the next few months we ll be approaching certain people about the next stage beyond the prototype Once up and running what will the revenue model be how is the service going to generate income Will advertising fund it No advertising is going to be a component part but it s a different model of advertising Anyone in a digital business who thinks they can rely on the same pay per view ads as TV are just fooling themselves I think advertising is in a transition where the online spend is rising but digital advertising still hasn t worked out how it s most effective How then is the service going to make money I m sure a news platform with a global focus will attract some advertising but more so it will be about direct sales to users We will also have a B2B element in that we
