Apple News is actually driving people back to The Telegraph site - that matters, because it make sit potentially more useful than Facebook.
Asking people to predict the future isn't a sure bet - unless you're talking about cats…
Don't mock search and social - they drive 70% of traffic to publisher sites.

This is a big week at The Telegraph it seems, with painful politics at work.
The two newspapers I'm reading on the iPad - and the one I'm dropping.

Andre Marr: a more pretentious political host?
Well now, this is interesting:
Free website, £9.99 a month for the iPad app. So the question here is:
- They’re using the iTunes subs model
- It’s free for existing Telegraph subscribers
The future of the existing iPad “Best of” app is unclear. It’s still working in its current form, but the new version is an update. So, to try out the new paid service, I say goodbye to the old free one. Clearly, there will be no new users of the old app, as it’s been replaced in the app store, but will they cut off access to those who choose not to update? UPDATE: Yes, access to content via the old app will be “winding down” in the next few days, a helpful tweet from the Telegraph folks informs me.
I couldn’t help but chuckle, as two stories came to my attention in a very short period of time:
- Telegraph Plans to Charge for Online Content [£] – The FT reports that The Telegraph is contemplating some sort of paywall, next year, probably. (Can I vague that up a little for you?)
- LinkedIn Launches Share Button – Meanwhile, LinkedIn is making it easy for publishers to make it easy for readers to share links (Follow? Good.)
