The core unit of content on the web used to be the article. Whether you called it a post, blog, article, or column, it's always been your core content. You created it and measured its performance. It's what fueled you to go viral.
Social has completely changed that paradigm.
Now, the core unit is much smaller. It's a Facebook video, an Instagram post, a tweet, a YouTube video, an interactive element, or even just an image. The core unit is now a particle. A particle is — quite literally — part of an article.
The particle cannot be treated as a flat embed anymore because it has to be formatted and rewritten to work for Instant Articles, Apple News, and AMP. It has to be meta tagged to optimize sharing across social platforms. It has to be able to stand alone on native, but still be able to weave its way into the context of an article. The kinetic energy of a particle can be harnessed to accelerate the momentum of an article. Particles need to be strung together and assembled to create context and voice, and through that, loyalty.
