Wake up: News doesn’t work — via @davewiner + my comment in my blog #news #journalism

Agree but what do we now? 

The solution is certainly not counting on Facebook to produce the kind of algorithm that will be serving precisely the news that you need. The solution is elsewhere, on the open web. Facebook? It's OK to share information. You can reach some more people. But to consume information? Facebook either resurfaced things from 2 days ago OR is pushing news items that are completely out of the realm of the things that actually interest me. Facebook is not a news reader. 

THE solution should be on the open web, Facebook might want to plug & take from this platform solution for news the Sam way Google plugs on news providers to construct news.google.com, why not.. But there will be no perfect solution that match everyone's needs from Facebook. It's a bad idea.
