With users logging into their social accounts on mobile multiple times a day and scanning the newsfeed for anything that might interest them, the smartphone has become a key battleground for the publishers vying for consumer eyeballs. And with NZME data showing that 50-58 percent of all the traffic to the Herald’s mobile site came from social media channels over the last few months, we look at how news publishers are becoming increasingly dependent on social media channels.
