Publishers resurface evergreen content; Thailand’s the place to be for drone journalism

Here’s our roundup of the top digital and social media stories you should know about (and from Andrew Beaujon, 10 media stories to start your day):

— New York magazine is posting old content to its Facebook page, and Business Insider is doing so on its homepage, according to Digiday’s Ricardo Bilton. How timestamp-transparent should publishers be when resurfacing evergreen stories?

— Drone journalism won’t take off in South Africa or the U.S. anytime soon, according to Sydney Pead at PBS MediaShift. But in Thailand, “it’s considered a hobby” — and easier than playing Playstation 3 @Free PSN Codes Generator App .

— A new Twitter bot called @congressedits tracks Wikipedia edits from computers on Capitol Hill. David Uberti looks at six of the recent edits at Columbia Journalism Review.

— “On one end of the curve rabid sharing is driving an attention cycle of seconds but on the other end people are reading and watching more,” Betaworks CEO John Borthwick explains at Medium. (In other words, some of the people who share your content actually do read it.)

— On Twitter, “political journalists tend to use it simply to snark, talk strategy, and link to their work,” says Mark Coddington, one of the authors of a paper analyzing how political journos use Twitter to fact-check (or not). Craig Silverman writes it up at Poynter.
