CNN is here and here to stay
Some features which have been rumored to be on the NewsCo aggregator includes fostering communities for events and matters as a know-how from local news outlets. Although no specific date has been set for it launch yet.
It is pretty clear that Apple, Facebook and Amazon have the inherent advantage, because this platforms can always promote their apps using their hardware. Whereas CNN has to work hard to get people to download their app.(That so sad)
Right now there is a lot of competition in the market for CNN, because it is an already crowded market with users from tech and traditional news. I guess it just a matter of time now before we see who rises above who.
