I wish Facebook would actually innovate some new products instead of just looking at what's successful and just using scale to edge in *cough* instagram *cough*. Why doesn't facebook have a proprietary e-commerce platform yet? Where are customized pages for different industries? Have they monitized mobile yet?

 

Facebook should be focusing on generating revenue. Here's how to do it, create a one click purchase system ala Amazon, and a halfway decent e-commerce CMS for businesses. Then use the social graph to incentivize sharing with discounts and coupons. Provide real ROI to businesses on facebook and move user away from collecting useless images to purchasing real products.

This all depends on how you define better.

 

If by better you mean keyword and SEO optimized for higher ranking in search results, then unfortunately the answer is that computer is far more effective at generating a news article than a human.

 

Fortunately for us humans in the marketing industry there is a small revolution happening, perhaps you have heard of "social media" :P Social Media brings the human factor back into this, a human is far more likely to generate in innovative idea, controversial story, or hilarious anecdote than any machine in existence.

 

I used to design artificial intelligences used in data mining, and I can tell you that if you are a talented writer who is active on social media *cough* @ginidietrich  *cough* then you have absolutely nothing to worry about.

 

This article proves my point ;)
