Social media not only changes how we consume the news, it changes how we produce and distribute the news.

But while D.C. is apparently a good place for hipsters, it isn't too kind to douchebags. According to a new study from Estately, D.C. was named the city with the fifth fewest douchebags per capita.
And how did they determine this? By looking at the 100 largest U.S. cities and ranking them "based on the percentage of male Facebook users in each city who listed the following criteria as 'interests' on Facebook: Nickelback, Monster Energy, Axe (brand), Don Ed Hardy, Vin Diesel, Chris Brown, Tosh.), Mixed Martial Arts, Bluetooth, and Dane Cook."
A new USA Today article highlights why D.C. is a great place for hipsters to visit, while a new report from Estately found that D.C. is the city with the fifth fewest douchebags per capita.

And there you have it why we hate using Facebook, +Elana Levin, they keep moving the goal posts away from organic marketing. But doing so undermines political and policy advocacy as much as SPAM. The 1st Amend protects political an policy speech in public places, but Facebook is a private public space. (Not even sure what that means.)

For now, there are 250,000,000 Americans and a billion+ worldwide on Facebook. And e go where the people are.

But if Facebook makes it increasingly impossible to reach people organically, that is an issue. Not only do they have near monopolistic price setting abilities, but idea that political speech has to be paid for to be seen is kinda anti-American.
