Now Nick is talking about one of the exciting things is that publishers can also track how their digital content in performing. Publishers can see what readers are consuming, which articles are consumed most highly in a magazine, how long readers spend with an article, which interactivity was most popular. And, publishers don’t have to rely on panels or surveys to get this information.
