The paper explores a new way to distribute its content — through the crowds of users on Facebook. “With WSJ Social, the Journal is purposely “navigating the content within the app around people,” Baratz told Megan Garber who wrote this article, and making “every user an editor”.  “We really want to show that it’s not a game,” Baratz continues. “We really think that these people are curators,” doing important distributive work that, at scale, could prove immensely valuable to the WSJ. Now that’s democratizing curation.
