FIPP World Magazine Trends 2014: CEE Region (II.)

From the new edition of FIPP's World Magazine Trends 2013/2014 [data from ZenithOptimedia]:

In 2012 total ad spending declined 1.6 % in Central-/Eastern Europe and 2.7 in Western Europe. But CEE is recovering faster than WE. In 2012 ad spend share of TV was 35 % (USD 43,528 million) and will hold it's leading position. The print share is 11 % for magazines and 20 % for newspapers and will decrease to 9 % and 17 % in 2015.

The print ad budgets are shifted to the Internet, which has a market share of 21 % in 2012 and expected to gain 5 percent points until 2015.

Btw., part of "Internet" ad spend will be still magazine + newspaper (digital) advertising. Maybe high time to change the viewpoint away from the medium delivery form to media categories to make sense.



The FIPP WMT 2014 is a great compendium for anyone in media and advertising who needs to know about international magazine markets and needs some basic data, resources, and contacts. This 10th compendium of World Magazine Trends has it all - for 54 countries - (if available).

More about the report
The World Magazine Trend Report 2013-2014 provides - on over 440 pages - overall trends and basic data market & media for 54 countries and in detail data on ad spending (by ZenithOptimedia) for B2B + Consumer Magazines and circulation figures (by PricewaterhouseCoopers) ... more

Blogs & Bullets: Mapping the Russian Language Blogosphere



authored by Bruce Etling, Karina Alexanyan, John Kelly, Rob Faris, John Palfrey, Urs Gasser

Key findings include:

- Unlike their counterparts in the US and elsewhere, Russian bloggers prefer platforms that combine features typical of blogs with features of social network services (SNSs) like Facebook. Russian blogging is dominated by a handful of these “SNS hybrids.”
- While the larger Russian blogosphere is highly divided according to platform, there is a central Discussion Core that contains the majority of political and public affairs discourse. This core is comprised mainly, though not exclusively, of blogs on the LiveJournal platform.
- The Discussion Core features four major groupings:
-- Politics and Public Affairs (including news-focused discussion, business and finance, social activists, and political movements)
-- Culture (including literature, cinema, high culture, and popular culture)
-- Regional (bloggers in Belarus, Ukraine, Armenia, Israel, etc.)
-- Instrumental (paid blogging and blogging for external incentives)
- Political/public affairs bloggers cover a broad spectrum of attitudes and agendas and include many who discuss politics from an independent standpoint, as well as those affiliated with offline political and social movements, including strong ‘Democratic Opposition’ and ‘Nationalist’ clusters.
- The Russian political blogosphere supports more cross-linking debate than others we have studied (including the U.S. and Iranian), and appears less subject to the formation of self-referential ‘echo chambers.’
- Pro-government bloggers are not especially prominent and do not constitute their own cluster, but are mostly located in a part of the network featuring general discussion of Russian public affairs. However, there is a concentration of bloggers affiliated with pro-government youth groups among the Instrumental bloggers.
- We find evidence of political and social mobilization, particularly in those clusters affiliated with offline political and social movements.
- The online ‘news diet’ of Russian bloggers is more independent, international, and oppositional than that of Russian Internet users overall, and far more so than that of non-Internet users, who are more reliant upon state-controlled federal TV channels.
- Popular political YouTube videos focus on corruption and abuse of power by elites, the government, and the police.

Ukrainian Advertising Projection for 2009 by Segment

Preparing my trip Kyiv, Ukraine next week, I like to share here some data from the ALL-Ukrainian Ad Coalition on advertising spending in 2008 (actual) and 2009 (estimates). Some additional money might com from international advertisers which are not hit by the expected cut in half of the exchange rate between Hrywnja and USD during 2009.

All Figures in local currency (UAH)



All Figures in USD
(Exchange Rate 2008: 5.5 to 1, 2009: 10.0 to 1)



Overall drop in ad spending is 14 % (UAH) and more then 50 % in USD. The most affected areas are Media, ITC, automobil and classified ...

MOE / CEE Werbeausgaben nach Medienkategorien

Hier ein Update (alte Version) zur Verteilung von Werbeausgaben auf verschiedene Medien in ausgewählten Ländern Mittel- und Osteuropas.


vergrößern

Die dominierende Rolle in den MOE-Ländern spielt die TV Werbung, die - wenn auch recht unterschiedlich in den ausgewiesenen Ländern - deutlich höhere Anteile auf sich vereint, als zum Beispiel in Deutschland. Das Wachstum der Gesamtwerbeausgaben liegt deutlich über den Vergleichswerten der alten EU-Länder und den USA. Interessant auch, dass u.a. in den Ländern Russland, Ukraine, Rumänien aber auch Polen, die Ausgaben für Werbung in Magazinen vor denen in Zeitungen liegen (nicht zuletzt mitverursacht durch die Aktivitäten deutscher Großverlage).

Die Zahlen stammen aus der FIPP Publikation World Magazine Trends und Angaben lokalen Media Monitoring Institutionen.

Die Handelsblatt Verlagsgruppe muss Ihre Engagement in Mittel- und Osteuropa zurückfahren

aus finanziellen und strategischen Gründen, so weiß Isabell Hülsen auf Spiegel Online, habe sich Holtzbrinck entschieden, die Expansion in Mittel- und Osteuropa einzustellen und wieder zurückzuführen.

Erst im August 2006 hatte die Verlagsgruppe Handelsblatt Joachim O. Weidemann als Verlagsleiter Mitte- und Osteuropa installiert - jetzt, nur knapp eineinhalb Jahre später, heißt hieß es für Ihn und die Partner Kommando zurück ...

Korrektur / Nachtrag:
Joachim O. Weidemann hat die VHB bereits Ende Januar verlassen (Kress Report) verlassen und
die COMECON Media Beratungs- und Beteiligungsgesellschaft gegründet. Außerdem ist er Vorstandsmitglied bei OLMA Press (Moskau, RU) und verantwortet dort den Bereich New Media (und M&A).

Die Beteiligung an Economedia (Bulgarien) wurde bereits verkauft.

Die Anteile am Ekonomika Verlag in Kyiv (Ukraine) , sowie an Economia in Praha (Tschechien) und Ecopress in Bratislava (Slowakei) sollen verkauft werden.

Bei der Entscheidung sei, so berichtet der Spiegel, die Unternehmensberatung Roland Berger | Strategy Consultants beratend tätig gewesen und man werde die Gelder lieber in Deutschland investieren.

Top 100 Russia Blog-Ranking - Update -

Auf Krusenstern.ch gibt es einen Update zu den Top 100 Blogs zum Thema Russland und Ukraine ausgezählt nach Technorati-Links, die Unique Visitors und der Google PageRank ...

Kollege Jürg Vollmer-Orlova schreibt:

"Die 'TOP 100 Russia-Weblogs' sind auch eine Rangliste. In erster Linie ist diese Liste aber eine Einladung zu einer spannenden Reise durch eine 'Terra Incognita' im Osten Europas, die fünfzig Mal grösser ist als Deutschland!

Natürlich sind Russland und die Ukraine schon kartografiert. Zusätzlich zu Landkarten und Reiseführern können wir die beiden grössten Staaten Europas - Russischkenntnisse vorausgesetzt - auch in 3 Millionen russischsprachigen Weblogs kennenlernen. Oder in 71 Weblogs hauptsächlich in Englisch und Deutsch, die ich bisher gefunden habe. Ein Klick auf den Namen des Weblogs - und die Reise beginnt ..."

BlogCamp CIS & Baltics - Kyiv, October 13-14, 2007

According to my friend Serhiy Danylenko from Highway.UA, the BlogCamp CIS & Baltics 2007 will be probable the first BarCamp in the post-SU territory. Evgeny Morozov from Belarus (Director of New Media at TOL.org) initiated the project and is organizing the event with people from Baltics, Russia, Ukraine and Belarus.

They expect about 300 bloggers and Social Media people to gather on October 12-14 in Kyiv (Kiev, Ukraine) to discuss Social Media and Web 2.0 development in the region - in four lines of sessions, three in Russian and one in English.

Certainly, participating on this event for interested 'outsider', will be very educational, a good chance to get to know the driving forces behind Blogging, Social Media & Citizen Journalism and Web 2.0 developement in CIS countries & Baltics and to gain and share lots of inside about this fast moving region.

I do not know whether there is enough interest on discussing subject like

- how Social Media and Traditional Media can benefit from each other
- how Social Media can make up for missing or suppressed diversity of mass media
- how Social Media can benefit Special Interest and/or B2B Media

with foreign and non-Russian speaking folks? If so, I will try to participate.

Social Networks & Blogging Platforms in Russia (Updated)

I was working hard to get a first overview about Social Networks in Russia ... it is no easy for me and the market is quite crowded. Yandex and Rambler just bought into this field, so for international players it will be difficult to get a foothold in Russia on the subject (remember Google ongoing struggle to get a leading position in Russian language search).

And I asked for help, which I got, thank you!


Yuri Aksyonov from PRweb.com.ua was very helpful and added a ranking to my original list

No. 1 LiveInternet - most popular network
No. 2 LiveJournal (Russian part of it is operating by SUP company)
No. 3 Mail.ru - Portal Mail.ru blogging platform
No. 4 diary.ru

He pointed to a list on Yandex.ru ranking services by daily no. of postings

Yuri also adds some comments:
Services like LinkedIn are not popular. Moikrug, as you've pointed, was bought by Yandex. Besides, Yandex is testing service beta.ya.ru where people can use some additional services (photo storage, blogs, mail and other).

Interesting trend - networks are trying to cooperate with leading media. SUP and publishing house Kommersant agreed to integrate accounts. So, readers of Kommersant need to have LJ account to comment articles, or write at forums. Vedomosti and Yandex agreed to integrate accounts with Moikrug.

Something like Digg is news2.ru/, but it's not popular and other are even less popular.

Expanded list of major social networks:
damochki.ru (bought by Rambler.ru)
diary.ru
fakultet.ru (like facebook.com)
LiveInternet.ru
LiveJournal.ru - it has more than one mil. registered user and nearly 65,000 communities
Mail.ru - Portal Mail.ru blogging platform
moikrug.ru (near to LinkedIn) - bought by Yandex
odnoklassniki.ru (means classmates)
comby.ru / privet.ru
vkontakte.ru (a Russian Facebook clone)


Dmitriy Tabakov (from Ukraine) shared his 'simple' user first experience (his words)

damochka.ru
At once glance is cast on to, that it is a womanish resource obviously. His design talks about it and the name also. Certainly, any can registered there, but it will be interesting mainly for women. Therefore, for its information, news is characteristic, references to other resources presenting a value in the informative understanding only for women. From view of content filling, web site is fully oriented to the Russian-language people and mainly from Russia. We can just surprised by the amount of women owning access to the Internet and visit this source. If subjectively, I would put mark - 3. Because, if it moderate, and there is no spam with viruses how they write, however in fact he such and is with the heap of additional trash which covering ordinary essence. In addition, it is difficult sometimes to understand the value of sections of site, because they are adopted, allegedly in extraordinary execution, however to grasp the meaning, not clicking on them, not possibly.

fakultet.ru
The name, talking for itself. Going out from his value, present the long list of higher educational establishments, but not only in Russia, but other countries too. However much it is, to enormous in 278 universities and institutes 1904 schools locates only in Moscow. By the way sitting in Ukraine, a server "assumed" that I from Moscow, that as wished him. They closed this mistake by phrase "from unreliable sources we knew that you". If honestly, already it was occasion desirable to stop networking here, because the searching in long list of countries and cities awfully was not pleasure. While, other resources from the list of Hugo work correct, my IP there positioned correctly up to a city. Even when I chose the list of countries, finding Ukraine, and writing the first three letters the system will ask me to correct my university. Otherwise, this resource differs nothing, so no diaries and medias of resources we will not find there. That is why I give mark - three.

moikrug.ru
It is not say about it, while will not call on a main page and will not see inscription "service of Yandex". At once is clear that we find a product to extending the base of clients, because after registration you will get three mail accounts on the various domains of Yandex. In addition, we have much bigger spectrum of search. There is a section classmate, university-mates and colleagues. Moreover, in a section "acquaintances" locate list of questionnaires with a photo, contacts and positions. Section "work" contains vacancies for job with information about a paying, name of company and employer. Overall, a resource looks pleasantly and there is nothing superfluous. Perhaps, four marks to Yandex, for the work on such course. However, nothing new.

odnoklassniki.ru
Striked me by it's disorganization. To find a city Kiev it was easily, just because I click randomly on the page of search list containing 30 pages! Even so, the list was in alphabetical order, but to find something very problematic. A resource contains all schools and even summer camps obviously. However, in the Ukrainian segment I found school of Kazantip! But it is a summer festival of club music in Crimea! Therefore, what he do in the list of schools very strange. Similar incomprehensible names yet great number on entire countries and there you begin to think, that newbie users of middle classes made this list. Surely not by professional administrators of site. Because of not interesting design and incorrect content mark - two.

privet.ru
Represented in style of blog. On a page, a great number of bookmarks are for a load the medias and the lists of the most active users and visited communities. In general, nothing super extra ordinal. Resource with the well knowing idea of the personal diary and not differs from many the same ones. Because of famous idea, but high quality executed - I think mark four.

vkontakte.ru
We call on a site, waiting for a long time, while loading and see the copy of well-known design of http://www.facebook.com/. Yes, Russian variant exactly of this resource. All is executed in the same conservative, however intuitional clear design. A starting page contains approximately those texts what the English-language original has. Form of registration, control a site panel, all is identical. From what can do conclusion, that a resource is created for those aims are uniting people, friends and colleagues which are simpler to call on a site with their linguistic execution, instead of to communicate overcoming linguistic barriers. I do not know what sense the creators of site inlaid, doing identical for the world resource, because, even not having the same resource in Ukraine, I however will go on English variant. However as an idea which working and with a successful project, will put 5, but for the high-quality translation of original web site. Because even by good translation of software in Russia can not boasting.

Dimitry also looked at the Yandex list - and explained (for me not speaking Russian)

VDZ Whitepaper: Zeitschriftenmarkt Ukraine

Trotz der politischen Verwerfungen im Land selbst und im Spannungsfeld zwischen Ost (Russland) und West (EU) Orientierung ist dieser Markt für Verlage seit Jahren profitabel und bietet Zuwachsraten, die hier in Deutschland (im klassischen Geschäft) schon lange nicht mehr erzielt werden können.

Trip to Odessa (Ukraine)


SoftPress Publishing, Kyiv has a regional office all over Ukraine. Last Saturday (for Ukrainians Saturdays are working days) we, Ellina Shnourko-Tabakova (Co-founder and managing partner SoftPress, hitech, ITware, 4th Sector), Vladimir Tabakov (partner and editorial-director) and I visit SoftPress's Odessa Office. Svetlana Mateychuk (Director of MIM Office) gave us a very warm welcome and, as this was my first visit in Odessa, she organized a First class tour to see all the main attraction of Odessa. She had asked well-known figure and writer in Odessa region Valentina Kovach to give us a very special tour. Even so I couldn't understand her poetry, it was a pleasure to watch her. The theatrical movements, her eyes, face, arms and hands and the whole body and listen to her melodic and sometimes dramatic voice. However, I had a very talented translator, Anastasia, who tried her best to translate Valentina's lecture and recitation from poetry related to the places we visit.

I came to Odessa with the impression that Odessa must be a very old city, breathing the history of the last 2.500 years or so, reaching back to the Greeks. Over this thousands of years it was build on one of the most beautiful places on the black sea. Of course, I have heard about what Germans and allies Romanian have done in WW2 to the people of Odessa. But also, that it has re-obtain its importants and beauty since.

However, now I know Odessa is only 212 years old, it represents a blend from people from 112 countries, many westerners and southerners played an important role and the founding legends are interesting to listen too, but very much in doubt. It is a lively place and people fun-loving
spicy, sometimes sarcastic but open an friendly people.

UA's Generation On The Highway

My first meeting outside the 'offical' program was with Serhiy Danylenko (you reach his blog about Citizen Journalism & Social Media here). Together with Dmytro Dubilet (Blog) he co-founded in August 2005 the Ukrainian Citizen Journalism Portal 'Highway'.

Serhiy speaks Ukrainian, English, Polish, Russian, French, and German and beyond the language, we had no problem to get 'going' and sharing experience. The idea of 'Highway' was influenced from (or even conceived during) the 'Orange Revolution' (November/December 2004). When I mentioned the Orange Revolution and that I was there in-person (and of course online)


with my friends from Ukraine



he said, "you look so familiar, I think we must have meet there already ...".

From what I can see (I don't read Ukrainian) Dmytro, Serhiy and so many collaborators (4.500 registered users) have done a great job and I wish them well with their new media partner and with their extended projects in the Social Media environment (e.g. Hi-Blogger).

We meet at SoftPress Publishing Office and so I had a chance to introduce him to my Ukrainian friend and business partner for 12 years Ellina Shnourko-Tobakova and with her publishing activities in the field of Computer & Communication (e.g. Hi-Tech Pro, ITWare.com.ua) she has collected as distinctive crowd of professional, enthusiast and active readers and leading media entities.

For my understanding, there are great chances for Highway & SoftPress to cooperate on several levels. Moreover, as on a long run social media & citizen journalism is about networked media, networked reporting, networked XY ... and not about building a new silo maybe something innovative and beneficial might blossom out of this first contact.

I shared with Serhiy some ideas on a more holistic model for a Social Media platform and I would be happy if one or the other idea would be useful for Highways and UA's Social Media development.

Serhiy, I enjoyed our meeting, you have my 'number' and I hope to meet you again online and/or offline.

Back from Kyiv -- Kiev (Ukraine)

I had a great time in Kyiv, good meetings and discussions - hopefully some ideas and project will be implemented soon ...
