The Daily to be big on photos, social media

From what Poynter writer Damon Kiesow was able to find in the source code of the newly launched The Daily website, Rupert Murdoch’s The Daily will be strong on photos and social media.

A section labeled “Story Carousel” includes links to icons that seem intended to function as forward and back buttons for paging through a selection of articles.

Another part of the code, labeled “Share Links,” may indicate the availability of Facebook, Twitter, Digg, Reddit and Newsvine article sharing options.

The appearance of social media options seems to align with earlier reporting that The Daily website would serve as an archive of tablet-first content – available for staffers to link to from Facebook, Twitter and other services.

Will The Daily have editorial cartoons and comics? Nah… nobody wants those any more.
