About next generation publishing
With the immense success Schibsted brands like VG and Aftenposten have, it would be very easy to sit back and be complacent. Instead, the next generation publishing team is taking a step back and completely reimagining what a publishing product could be. We’re disrupting ourselves in order to deliver the best possible experience of consuming news to our users.
The goal is to make every user feel like they’ve got their own personal editor - an editor that curates the news just for you and helps you gain access to the news that’s most personally relevant. We’re building a platform to combine the best of human editorial teams and machine learning to deliver the right news to you at the right time in the right format, whether that be text, video or audio.
About identity and global components
The future of Schibsted products is all about personalizing the experiences for our users. We want to make it feel like every one of our products was made just for you and that you can move between our different applications seamlessly and effortlessly.
To make this vision a reality, we’re reimagining our portfolio of identity products. We’re thinking mobile-first, concentrating on providing an amazing user experience on native applications. We want to enable our users to sign up, sign in, move between applications and even devices in the most natural way possible. We want users to be able to jump from an article on VG to a related story from Aftenposten or a posting from FINN.no without worrying about the fact that they’re changing applications. We want users to move from their iPhone to their Apple TV to keep consuming the same news story without skipping a beat. And most of all, we want to do all of this while making the user’s privacy our highest priority.
Identity is the start of that vision, but we’ll also be building a whole suite of global components that Schibsted brands all over the world will be able to leverage.
