LinkedIn's publishing platform opens to all users
GigaOM
LinkedIn announced that its publishing platform, which up to this point has been limited to just 500 "influencers" including Barack Obama and Richard Branson, will open up to the masses. LinkedIn's Publisher Platform is the user-facing component to what has become a robust media arm at LinkedIn, largely propelled by its acquisition of news-reading app Pulse, and its content often feeds into daily news aggregator LinkedIn Today.

Facebook buys WhatsApp for $19 billion
CNN
In a play to dominate messaging on phones and the Web, Facebook has acquired WhatsApp for $19 billion. That's a stunning sum for the five-year old company. But WhatsApp has been able to hold its weight against messaging heavyweights like Twitter, Google and Microsoft's Skype. WhatsApp has upwards of 450 million users. Referring to WhatsApp's soaring growth, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said on a conference call, "No one in the history of the world has done anything like that."

10 reasons you can't trust everything you read about the Author Earnings Report
Digital Book World
By Dana Beth Weinberg: Last week I contested some of the key conclusions Hugh Howey reached through the data in his Author Earnings report. i09.com covered that discussion, and Howey took to that site's comments section to register a rebuttal. In doing so he put forth a number of mistaken claims about his Author Earnings report as well as the 2014 Digital Book World and Writer's Digest Author Survey, which I coauthored.

The 50K report
Author Earnings
One week ago, we released our initial Author Earnings report on the prevalence and breakdown of nearly 7,000 genre e-books on Amazon's bestseller lists. We only looked at three categories of genre fiction. Since that time, our spider has been hard at work gathering data on a wider variety of titles as it probes deeper into the lists.
