Publishing Sector Scorecard Q1 2021 Update – Thematic Research

For more than a decade, Facebook insisted that it was a neutral technology platform, not a publisher. That all changed in 2018 when the company’s attorneys argued in court that Facebook was indeed a publisher, exercising editorial control over content.

Scope

This sector scorecard provides a top-down, comprehensive outlook for the key players in the publishing sector over the next two years, based on the key themes set to transform their industry landscape.

Key Highlights

Over the last few years, Facebook has made innumerable editorial decisions, including cracking down on conspiracy theories and inaccurate news related to the COVID-19 pandemic. As misinformation about the virus spread, the social media giant removed content that could lead to imminent physical harm and flagged posts containing fake news.

Reasons to buy

Companies that invest in the right themes become success stories; those that miss the big themes end up as failures. Given that so many themes are disruptive, it is very easy to be blindsided by industry outsiders that invade your sector.

To help our clients gain a competitive advantage, we have developed GlobalData’s thematic research ecosystem. This single, integrated global research platform provides an easy-to-use framework for tracking all themes across all companies in all sectors.

This report is a sector scorecard, which identifies those companies most likely to succeed in a world filled with disruptive threats.
