13:23 EDTFBFacebook to offer revenue split for content creators, Re/code says
As it continues competing with Google's (GOOG) YouTube, Facebook (FB) will begin offering video content creators 55% of the revenue from ads played alongside videos, reports Re/code. In an interview, Facebook's VP of partnerships Dan Rose told Re/code that "a lot of [partners] have said this will be a big motivation to start publishing a lot more video content to Facebook." As part of the revenue-sharing move, Facebook will also be testing a "Suggested Videos" feature, a video-only news feed that uses an algorithm to personalize its content for each user. Reference Link

07:08 EDTFBGoogle apps take up nearly as much user time as Facebook’s apps, WSJ says
A study released by Forrester Research suggests that U.S. smartphone users in late 2014 spent roughly 12% of their time in Google (GOOG) apps, just below the 13% spent on Facebook (FB) apps, the Wall Street Journal reports. The time spent on Google apps is likely to be “much higher” since respondents were only asked to list apps they downloaded and the time spent on them, excluding apps pre-loaded on certain Google phones, the report says. The same is true of Apple’s (AAPL) apps, amounting to 3% of users time, the report says. Reference Link
