Big U.S. advertisers boost 2012 spending by slim 2.8 percent
AdAge
Spending by the nation's biggest advertisers looks a lot like the U.S. economy as a whole: good, but far from great, and getting a nice lift from the technology sector and a resurgent auto industry. The 100 leading national advertisers spent an estimated $104.5 billion on U.S. advertising last year, up just 2.8 percent from 2011, according to Ad Age DataCenter's analysis.

Why Facebook thinks it needs more news
Bloomberg Businessweek
Facebook is working on a news-reading service for mobile devices, according to a report in The Wall Street Journal, and this development shouldn't come as a surprise. Facebook needs users to stay engaged with its product on mobile devices, and the company's difficulties on mobile have been a key factor in its disappointing performance on the stock market. But Facebook seems to be figuring this out to a certain extent. Mobile advertising, which accounted for 30 percent of revenue last quarter, is making up an increasing portion of Facebook revenue.

Life after Google Reader: A guide to the best options
GigaOM
For news geeks, it might have seemed like the end of the world when Google Reader announced it was shutting its doors July 1, killing a product that was much loved by its fans but apparently not by Google's business department. While most people were bemoaning the news in March, Instapaper founder Marco Arment wrote that actually, it was great for fans of the service.

Google makes Google News in Germany opt-in only to avoid paying fees
Tech Crunch
Starting Aug. 1, Google News in Germany will only index sources that have decided to explicitly opt-in to being shown on the search giant's news-aggregation service. Google News remains an opt-out service in the other 60 countries and languages it currently operates in, but since Germany passed a new copyright law earlier this year that takes effect Aug. 1, the company is in danger of having to pay newspapers, blogs and other publishers for the right to show even short snippets of news.

Paton: The past can't buy the future for newspapers
paidContent
The Digital First Media CEO, who has talked before about how media companies have to give up their role as information gatekeepers in order to broaden their reach and engage with their readers, said that subscription plans have a place in the future of media — but not paywalls, which he described as "a stack of digital pennies." Paton said he prefers "all access" plans that bundle print with digital products, but even those are only stop-gap measures rather than a solution.
