Mike Atherton

Content strategist

For over 20 years, Mike Atherton has been connecting people to content. A specialist in structuring information, he has chunked, pushed, presented and linked compelling content for the BBC, Huddle, and, in a different age, Playboy TV. Now a content strategist for Facebook in London, he collaborates with product specialists to build experiences from the terminology up.

He recently co-authored the book Designing Connected Content. When Facebook speaks to you, that's Mike and his fellow content strategists writing the script. He's also the author of Designing Connected Content, a gentle guide to modelling structure.
