Networks, like Tumblr, reddit and even Pinterest have changed the way we not only share, but re-share information. The very act of “re-pinning” and “reblogging” are the way information travels and are essential tactics for the most popular players on each site. New research from social analytics company, simplymeasured looks at how the reblog keeps content alive.

Who doesn’t love an animated GIF? Now, pair that animated GIF with short, concise recaps and we’ve got a winner, winner chicken dinner in GIF HOUND.
Recently created by Mike Hayes, social media editor at BuzzFeed, I was hooked after viewing GIF HOUND for less than a minute. Brilliant. Viewing animated GIFs highlighting headline-making news stories in short form actually relaxes my brain. The photos make me take pause before moving to the next and entice me to read the caption-length recaps.
The animated GIF above was one Hayes created to tell the story about Portland filmmaker James Winters who “enlisted his two sons and nephew to remake the classic music video as a tribute to Adam “MCA” Yauch who passed away on May 4.”
If a picture is worth a thousand words, then I say an animated GIF is worth a million. You are onto something here, Mike.
Do you think animated GIFs are underutilized in the news industry? Share your thoughts in the comments.
