Quartz's Zachary M. Seward has pronounced the homepage dead, and the social web our era's winner. He writes: "Traffic to the New York Times homepage fell by half in the last two years, according to the newspaper’s internal review of its digital strategy...

Homepage traffic is declining at most news sites as readers increasingly find links to news articles from social media, email, and other sources."
