Thanks to the Apple Watch, is the time finally right for a “Twitter for audio”?

Jeremy Levine on why so many Silicon Valley investors passed on Pinterest

$762.5 million in funding. A $5 billion valuation. 70 million hyper-engaged users who actually buy shit, and that’s just as of last year — this number is almost surely higher today. And yet Pinterest doesn’t always get a lot of respect among many New York and Silicon Valley elites. Maybe it’s because 92 percent of [...]

As anybody who manages a brand page on Facebook knows, the company is constantly tweaking its News Feed algorithm, the little robot that decides which posts each users see and which ones are lost forever in the social media ether.
