What’s most engaging is constantly changing — the platforms, the formats, the messages themselves. Navigating the new future comes down to knowing what your audience really wants.

Brian Steffens's insight:

"What's coming in 2018? We expect that in a saturated market where attention is key, this is the year that platforms begin emphasizing reader loyalty rather than reach. Facebook's latest announcements seem to correlate with that."

Countless research teams have determined that teams usually produce stronger results than lone innovators.
