Adapt or die. In the wake of Mashable’s mass layoffs and BuzzFeed’s (reportedly) underwhelming revenue numbers, many online news outlets have been left in a full-on panic as to how they can monetize in a media landscape increasingly dominated by mobile apps and the Facebook newsfeed.

The Times announced that it will invest over $50 million over the next three years to expand its international digital presence, forming a designated team – dubbed NYT Global – to spearhead the effort. Top brass at the Times explained to employees in an internal memo that the publication’s current digital offerings are still designed primarily for a U.S. audience, and therefore exclude an enormous potential audience.
