Survey: News orgs are prioritizing mobile development and placing less emphasis on paywalls. Anyone running a news organization — particularly one born in print, still struggling to adapt to the Internet — knows there are too many things to do: too many moves to make, too many innovations to chase, too many places to invest your limited resources of time, money, and attention.
Your efforts are finite; you have to pick what to emphasize. That’s what makes this data set from last week’s International News Media Association World Congress so interesting. More than 70 percent of Facebook's $3.54 billion revenue is now mobile. We've learned a couple of things about Facebook over its first three years as a public company.
It knows how to mint money, is increasingly mobile, and somehow keeps adding users despite having what feels like every internet-connected human being on the planet already signed up for its service. The company, which reported its first quarter earnings today, now has 1.44 billion monthly active users, and 1.25 billion on mobile, an increase of 13 and 24 percent, respectively. A whopping 936 million people use it every single day. Facebook continued to cruise, posting revenue of $3.45 billion, up 42 percent over the same period last year. The shift to mobile continues, with 73 percent of its revenue coming from mobile ads as compared to 59 percent for this period last year.

Four million Ugandans using mobile money, says report - Commodities In Summary Many Ugandans have adopted the use of mobile money for their financial transactions.
At least 4.3 million Ugandans use mobile money as a platform of financial inclusion, according to a new survey conducted by Global Findex. The report places Uganda among the top 10 countries on the African continent that have in the last five years registered tremendous growth in the use of the mobile money platform. The survey reveals shifting trends in Uganda’s financial service provision. Out of the 16 million Ugandan mobile phone subscribers, 27 per cent use the mobile phones as a platform for transacting money. Mr Godfrey Mutabazi, the Uganda Communications Commission executive director, told Daily Monitor, the absence of a proper banking system in Uganda has boosted mobile money growth especially in rural areas. At 68 per cent, Kenya is ranked above other Sub Saharan Africa countries with the highest penetration of mobile money.

Mobile Could Be What Makes Private Social Networks Succeed. Photos, location, professional networking, or all your real-life friends… Instagram, Foursquare, LinkedIn and Facebook lead social networking today because they’ve found existing types of networks to connect users around.
Now a new generation of startups has been showing up in recent months, trying to nail another type of networking that so far has yielded no big success: small, very personal networks.

Having relaunched last fall as mobile-only network for close friends that provides a cool spinny menu feature for actions like photos and check-ins, the company has shown enough progress that it was able to raise $30 million at a $250 million valuation.

Web journey complete, FT switching off iOS app. The Financial Times is preparing to kill off its iPad and iPhone app for good, signalling its final conversion from executable-app to web-app publishing.
The news publisher launched a HTML5 web app and pulled its iOS app off iTunes Store in mid-2011 but left the iOS version usable by subscribers with it already installed. Now, however, the FT will render the iOS app unusable by its remaining users over the next month, as it completes its HTML5 migration.
