Google Makes New Mark On Publishing With Stamp Project

Google Makes New Mark On Publishing With Stamp Project

Furthermore, the company will build Stamp around its "AMP" mobile webpages created to load faster than typical webpages.

Being able to display Stamp stories right inside independent webpages essentially makes it a news dissemination and content viewer platform entirely, not merely a "feature" locked into Google's search engine. Reports claim that Google tried to acquire Snap past year and given the concerns the company inflated some numbers, Google may have dodged a bullet.

The name Stamp echoes an existing Google product, Accelerated Mobile Pages, or AMP, that allows for faster loading of online news stories. As per the report, Google has already entered discussions with a coterie of publishers, including CNN, Vox Media, The Washington Post, and Time to participate in the project.

Trump's approval rating plunges to new low, poll shows
Trump's approval rating was 76 percent among Republicans , 2 percent among Democrats and 34 percent among independents. The new figures, says Quinnipiac, are the lowest approval and highest disapproval number since Trump took office.

That's very different from Facebook's Instant Articles, which is served on a different channel from the News Feed. A Google spokesperson said of the reports, "We don't have anything to announce at the moment but look forward to sharing more soon". "The success of the open source AMP project is down to the constant collaboration with publishers that involves working early on upcoming features".

The user experience for Stamp content is expected to include swipeable slides with text, photos and video just like Snapchat's Discover content, according to the Journal.

Simply put, the more people treat Facebook as a primary source of information, the fewer people turn to Google. "Stamp stories would be available broadly on the mobile web, and surfaced directly in Google search results, which could help considerably in terms of increasing their appeal vs. platform-specific products like Discover that require a user to already be within a specific app", says TechCrunch. This route is also easy for Google to attract more attention to its platform through interactive news.
