It affects all businesses, from the taxi industry giving way to ride-hailing services to in-store experiences morphing into online shopping. This century has seen the rise of music streaming, along with declining album sales.

The “mindless doom scroll” solves this issue of overwhelming … [Read more...] about If Content Is King, Then What Are Content Creators?
