Blurring the Lines

This solidifies my decision to save all content as markdown in the new version of Leverage:

Google Tests Feature That Lets Media Companies, Marketers Publish Directly to Search Results

With Facebook, Apple and now Google all serving content in a proprietary, yet non-social-post format, it's probalby a good bet that they'll all ingest content feeds as these new platforms become popular.

The difference between this concept and things like Medium or LinkedIn Pulse is that these articles are shown directly through the major ecosystems. They're not exactly inside of a social network, and they're not reliant on traditional SEO.
