"We take these guys very seriously," Oliver said, speaking at the event on Friday (16 May) organised by the BBC College of Journalism and the New York Times.

Vice Media's Tim Pool, a specialist in mobile technology who reported from 2013's Istanbul protests using Google Glass, has launched an app for the proper accreditation and verification of digital news footage. Taggly, available for iOS, automatically stamps the author's name onto an image or video, alongside the date, time and location they were taken and a company logo.

"I needed this," Pool told "With my photos I'm getting 50 to 100 retweets and there's no way for anyone to know the photo was mine, I'm not getting credit for it and then it's getting picked up and put on news websites and I'm thinking how do I get my website on there.

When Jonah Berger was a graduate student at Stanford, in the early aughts, he would make a habit of reading page A2 of the Wall Street Journal, which included a list of the five most-read and the five most-shared articles of the day. “I’d go down to the library and surreptitiously cut out that page,” he recalls. “I noticed that what was read and what was shared was often different, and I wondered why that would be.” What was it about a piece of content—an article, a picture, a video—that took it from simply interesting to interesting and shareable? What pushes someone not only to read a story but to pass it on?

The question predates Berger’s interest in it by centuries. Aristotle’s diagnosis was broad, and tweets, of course, differ from Greek oratory. Just how arousing each emotion was also made a difference. Berger and Milkman went on to test their findings in a more controlled setting, presenting students with content and observing their propensity to pass it along.

BBC targets social media users with Instagram video news | Media. BBC News is stepping up its efforts to reach new audiences on social media platforms after mobile and tablet viewing figures overtook desktop use for the first time in December. On 16 January, BBC News launched Instafax, a new short-form video news service delivered to Instagram users. The project is a month-long experiment, with three 15-second videos uploaded a day, intended to serve as a roundup of the day's news. The name is a throwback to the BBC’s former Ceefax service – the world’s first teletext service that ran on UK television until 2012.

This is described as the updated version of a text-based, short-form news service for the digital age. Steve Herrmann, head of BBC News Online, said the trial was a response to changing audience patterns after monthly figures for December, showed mobile and tablet consumption had overtaken desktop for the first time. Instafax viewers are being encouraged to comment and give feedback.
