State of the News Media 2012 - Il Giornalaio

State of the News Media 2012 - Il Giornalaio | Giornalismo Digitale | Scoop.it
L’edizione di quest’anno si basa in parte su 3,016 interviste telefoniche ad adulti over 18, con affidabilità del campione che può avere oscillazioni dal 2 al 7,5% in funzione della numerosità che inficia sul valore statistico, e in parte sull’aggregazione dei dati e delle evidenze di ricerche svolte nel corso del 2011 da PEW stessa e da altri istituti di ricerca.

La ricerca è davvero estremamente ampia e, per coloro che sono interessati a queste tematiche, è un must la lettura completa delle diverse aree, dei diversi media che lo studio analizza. Per sintesi e focalizzazione ho concentrato la mia analisi alla parte relativa ai quotidiani, alla stampa ed al digitale.

Can digital sales revive The Spectator? « NewsCred Blog – Thoughts on the Future of News | Giornalismo Digitale | Scoop.it

Like other publishers, The Spectator, a London-based conservative magazine, was hit hard by the collapse of financial markets four years ago. Between Dec. 2008 and June 2009, circulation fell from just under 62,000 to just over 58,000. However, according to financials posted March 15, the Spectator’s luck may be changing.

Investments in digital offerings, including two iPad apps and a Kindle edition, are netting new readers for the magazine. As the graph below demonstrates, sales jumped from just over 59,000 to nearly 61,000 between June and Dec. of 2011...http://blog.newscred.com/?p=1777

Giornali che muoiono in fretta | Giornalismo Digitale | Scoop.it

A distanza di una settimana, la ricerca fatta da LinkedIn sullo «stato delle industrie» continua a far parlare.
Non tanto per la prospettiva generale, quanto perché evidenzia come -negli Stati Uniti- i giornali stiano registrando il declino più veloce rispetto a tutti gli altri settori che non crescono. Di fatto i giornali perdono più velocemente posti di lavoro dal 2007 ad oggi rispetto a tutti gli altri impieghi presi in considerazione.

[...]

La domanda di giornalismo e di informazione cresce continuamente, ma il giornalismo professionale costa. Quindi secondo me la vera questione resta quella di sempre: con quale modello industriale il digitale potrà rendere sostenibili i costi del giornalismo?

[Data Viz] KONY2012: See How Invisible Networks Helped a Campaign Capture the World's Attention

[Data Viz] KONY2012: See How Invisible Networks Helped a Campaign Capture the World's Attention | Giornalismo Digitale | Scoop.it

If you’ve spent any time at all on Twitter and Facebook over the last week or so, you’ve undoubtably heard about KONY2012. The campaign by the nonprofit advocacy group Invisible Children centered around Joseph Kony, the Uganda warlord and leader of the Lord’s Resistance Army, a guerrilla group with a long and violent history that includes the kidnapping of children. With striking and dramatic imagery and Hollywood-style editing, the campaign video presents an utterly compelling message in the age of “social” media: by simply clicking “share,” you can make a difference in the world.

 

And “share” the world did, the video racking up 100 million views YouTube in only six days (the fastest campaign to surpass that high bar after Susan Boyle did it in 9, and Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance took 18 days). The preliminary YouTube data paints a picture of a youth movement: the video was heavily viewed from mobile phones and is most popular with 13-17 year old females and 18-24 year old males.

How journalists can use JSON to draw meaning from data | Poynter.

How journalists can use JSON to draw meaning from data | Poynter. | Giornalismo Digitale | Scoop.it
JSON stands for “JavaScript Object Notation,” which makes it sound like an esoteric bit of programming trivia that non-Web developers won’t ever have to deal with.

But JSON is neither esoteric, nor does it have to involve programming. It is just a data format that’s easy on the eyes for both humans and computers. This is one reason why it’s become one of the preferred data formats of choice for programmers and major Web applications.

JSON is just structured text, like CSV (comma-separated values) and XML. However, CSV typically is used to store spreadsheet-like data, with each line representing a row and each comma denoting a column. XML and JSON can describe data with nested information; for example, a list of users and the last 20 tweets belonging to each user. JSON, however, is more lightweight than XML and easier to read.

What journalists need to know about Facebook’s new interest lists | Poynter.

What journalists need to know about Facebook’s new interest lists | Poynter. | Giornalismo Digitale | Scoop.it

Facebook just announced a new feature called interest lists that collect posts from people and pages related to a certain topic into a separate, specialized news feed.

If Facebook’s interest lists sound pretty much like Twitter lists, they are. Facebook is using the same idea — a user can create lists of friends, pages and subscriptions on their own, or follow lists others have curated already.

 

This has implications for journalists in both newsgathering and distribution.

Make lists of your news organization’s journalists

The Washington Post, for instance, has a list of all its Facebooking staff members as well as narrower lists of politics or style reporters. This way loyal readers can quickly subscribe to a bundle of individual journalists.

The Washington Post includes 115 of its journalists on its new interest list.
A few caveats:

 

*Facebook Pages cannot create interest lists, so a social media editor or other individual will have to build them from his or her own Facebook account.
*Be sure to set these lists as public so others can find them.
*Be sure your journalists know that any posts they want list subscribers to see must be set to “public” visibility. And you can reassure them that their private posts will still only be seen by friends.

 

There’s really no downside to building lists for your readers to subscribe to. All it costs is some time. But it does remain to be seen whether Facebook users will actually embrace interest lists. Twitter lists, which serve the same purpose, have been used only minimally and were de-emphasized in the latest Twitter website and apps redesign.

But even if Facebook’s new interest lists don’t attract many casual users, journalists and other power users can certainly take advantage of them.

Utopia, tecnologia e Rete: riflessioni dal punto di vista di un giornalista digitale -

Mario Tedeschini Lalli: Il 29 marzo 2011, nell’ambito della serie “Dialoghi sull’utopia”, si è tenuto all’Università di Urbino un incontro dedicato in a “Utopia e tecnologia”. Con la moderazione di Giovanni Boccia Artieri , ne hanno parlato il direttore di RadioTre Marino Sinibaldi e il soprascritto. Questo è il testo - risistemato per quanto possibile - del contributo fornito oralmente del titolare di questo blog.

 

Non sono un tecnologo e non sono un “tecnico”. Laureato in Lettere, sono un giornalista da oltre trent’anni e da una quindicina – in particolare – un giornalista digitale. Mi sono tuttavia trovato ad affrontare profondi mutamenti tecnologici, che solo più tardi ho scoperto nascondere ancor più profondi mutamenti culturali, e ho passato una gran parte di questi anni a cercare di spiegare ai miei colleghi l’ampiezza di questi mutamenti. E al tempo stesso a tentare di tenere a bada le pulsioni “utopiche” che questi mutamenti suscitavano fuori dal mio mondo. Affronterò dunque il tema da questo mio specifico punto di vista.

 

Comincio da concetti che altri in questa tavola rotonda hanno già evidenziato: l’utopos e l’ucronos. Non sono sicuro che la forma dell’utopia oggi sia l’ucronia, credo piuttosto che l’utopia e l’ucronia facciano parte di un tutto unico e che forse proprio l’ universo digitale – che stiamo appena cominciando a comprendere – ce lo stia mostrando.

Uno dei due possibili significati di “utopia” è il “non luogo”, e dal ‘500, dal ‘ 600, dal ‘700, tutti i mondi immaginari sono “l’altrove”, il luogo che non è questo. E quindi anche il tempo che non è questo, sono i luoghi dove potrebbe essere possibile, nel futuro, realizzare il sogno, il progetto, l’idea utopica. In questo stesso arco di secoli, tuttavia, abbiamo anche scoperto che l’universo non è fatto delle quattro dimensioni (tre spaziali più tempo) così come le avvertiamo noi. La stessa cosa sta succedendo nell’universo digitale e grazie all’universo digitale: le dimensioni spazio-temporali cambiano e questo radicale cambiamento si può misurare con chiarezza nel mondo in cui io vivo, il mondo dei giornalisti e del giornalismo, anche se per la maggior parte di noi è non compreso e, dove compreso, è sottovalutato.

 

Ancora oggi si pensa e si parla di “nuovi media”, si pensa cioè a un nuovo medium che si aggiunge agli altri: prima la stampa, poi la fotografia, poi il cinema, poi la radio, poi la tv, poi “internet”… Come se avessimo scoperto un altro pianeta in orbita intorno al Sole dopo Plutone, del quale ci interessa studiare l’orbita e la temperatura, e la pressione, e i gas che lo circondano. Se così fosse, ci basterebbe la Fisica del ‘600, ci basterebbe la Fisica di Newton.

8 APIs your news organization should start using today | Poynter.

If your news site isn’t using APIs, you’re missing out.

APIs represent one of the fastest and most effective ways to enhance the quality of your site. They let you build on the work of others and provide your readers and viewers with a premium browsing experience.

Once the bailiwick of hard-boiled Web developers, APIs have gone mainstream. The conventions for building and using APIs have become simplified and standardized, and it’s now possible to create basic API integrations with only a modicum of programming experience (although customized applications still require extensive development expertise).

What Facebook and Twitter Mean for News | State of the Media

What Facebook and Twitter Mean for News | State of the Media | Giornalismo Digitale | Scoop.it

Perhaps no topic in technology attracted more attention in 2011 than the rise of social media and its potential impact on news. “If searching for news was the most important development of the last decade, sharing news may be among the most important of the next,” we wrote in a May 2011 report analyzing online news behavior called Navigating News Online.

At the moment, Facebook and, to a lesser extent, Twitter, dominate this intersection of social media and news. As written about in detail in the Digital chapter of this report, eMarketer reports that Facebook had 133 million active users in the U.S. at the end of 2011. Facebook defines “active users” as those who interact with Facebook content at least once a month. Despite debates about defining “active users,” there is little question about the site’s popularity or its “stickiness,” the degree to which some users are there a lot: Facebook users spent an average of 423 minutes each on the site in December. By contrast, a PEJ analysis of Nielsen Net View data puts the average time on a top 25 news site at just under 12 minutes per month. Even in 2010, all but one of those top news sites, with the exception being Google News, obtained a portion of their traffic from Facebook. And in 2011, Facebook furthered the news element of its platform with developments like the Social Reader, which allows users to follow, read and share news without ever leaving the network.
How much are consumers relying on Facebook for their daily news information, especially in comparison with using search or going directly to news websites or apps? And when they do get news on these networks, does it come from friends and family or from news organizations they follow? And finally, how is this news viewed?

@PaulLewis: come cambia il giornalismo d’inchiesta nell’era digitale | Festival Internazionale del Giornalismo #ijf12 | Giornalismo Digitale | Scoop.it

Paul Lewis è un giornalista del Guardian, Reporter of the Year in Gran Bretagna nel 2010 e vincitore nel 2009 del Bevins Prize per l’eccezionale giornalismo d’inchiesta fatto per la morte del venditore di giornali Ian Tomlinson durante gli scontri al G20 a Londra. Nella motivazione i giudici scrissero che «Paul ha usato tutti i metodi di cui può disporre un giornalista moderno, online e cartaceo, per continuare a premere e insistere sulla storia fino a stabilire cosa era realmente successo».

«Tutti i metodi» scrivono, e uno di quelli, non proprio quello più utilizzato qualche anno fa dai giornalisti, è stato Twitter, come dice lui stesso in un capitolo del libro Investigative Journalism: Dead or Alive?: «Diventare parte di una folla virtuale del G20» dice Lewis, grazie anche a Twitter e al crowdsourcing. È grazie al suo attivismo online che il giornalista ha potuto ricostruire pezzi importanti della storia di Tomlinson interrogando in maniera incalzante quella che era la versione ufficiale (e falsa) della polizia.

By open sharing information online, both through internet stories and Twitter, we became part of a virtual G20 crowd that had coalesced online to question the circumstances of his death.

L’anno successivo sempre Lewis, assieme a Matthew Taylor, fece un secondo scoop sulla morte di Jimmy Mubenga, un richiedente asilo angolano, e anche lì il crowdsourcing si rivelò fondamentale. La branca del giornalismo forse considerata meno appariscente nel lavoro di ricerca, quella delle inchieste e dell’investigazione, che diventa completamente “open”, con i giornalisti che fanno domande alla comunità, si servono di foto e video e costruiscono una realtà, stabiliscono una verità grazie alla moltitudine di pezzi trovati sui social, senza mai perdere di vista, però, quello che fa di un giornalista un “buon” giornalista, ovvero la verifica delle fonti...http://www.festivaldelgiornalismo.com/post/23609/

A response to Harper's publisher John MacArthur's lengthy screed against the enterprise of online journalism...

 

Long before I wrote stories for magazines, I read a magazine called Harper's. It was smart and weird and I felt like I found things there that I couldn't find elsewhere. Wonderful editors worked for Harper's like Clara Jeffery and Bill Wasik and Paul Ford. They brought thinkers like the now-famous David Graeber to my attention years before anybody else.

Dining in fluorescent-lit discomfort with my scrappy friends, we wondered why such a wonderful place refused to be a part of what we knew to be the flourishing intellectual domain known as The Internet. Now, thanks to a curmudgeonly op-ed from Harper's publisher John MacArthur, we know why: one time, when he and Lewis Lapham were dining in San Francisco near the height of the Internet bubble, someone used a word (platform) to describe something he didn't understand, and he's been deadset against such "Internet con men" ever since...http://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2012/03/paper-con-man-ravages-the-internet/254417/

Guidelines Proposed for Content Aggregation Online - NYTimes

Guidelines Proposed for Content Aggregation Online - NYTimes | Giornalismo Digitale | Scoop.it
Two approaches to giving credit where credit belongs online were announced at the South by Southwest Interactive festival in Austin.

 

David Carr: As words and articles became digitized over the last 15 years, they began to float, there for the plucking and replication elsewhere. Words like “curation” and “aggregation” became the language of the realm, sometimes used as substitutes for describing the actual creation of content. What had once been a craft was rapidly becoming a task.

Traditional media organizations watched as others kidnapped their work, not only taking away content but, more and more, taking the audiences with them. Practitioners of the new order heard the complaints and suggested that mainstream media needed to quit whining and start competing in a changed world, where what’s yours may not be yours anymore if others find a better way to package it.

So where is the line between promoting the good work of others and simply lifting it? Naughty aggregation is analogous to pornography: You know it when you see it.

Dieci punti per spiegare il giornalismo dei dati - Il Ducato

Dieci punti per spiegare il giornalismo dei dati - Il Ducato | Giornalismo Digitale | Scoop.it

Il Ducato - il giornale online della scuola di giornalismo di Urbino - traduce in italiano un o degli articoli fondamentali su data journalism....

 

"Il giornalista del Guardian Simon Rogers, direttore di Datablog, il blog del quotidiano inglese dedicato al data journalism, ha stilato una guida in dieci punti per spiegare cos’è questo ‘nuovo’ tipo di giornalismo. Eccola:

 

1. Forse oggi va di moda, ma non è qualcosa di nuovo
Il giornalismo dei dati esiste da quando esistono i dati. A metà dell’Ottocento Florence Nightingale, un’infermiera britannica, scrisse una relazione sulle condizioni dei soldati inglesi nel 1858. Nella prima edizione del Guardian (1821) venne pubblicata una tabella che elencava tutte le scuole di Manchester, il costo e il numero degli studenti. La differenza è che mentre in passato i dati venivano pubblicati in libri molto costosi, ora computer con fogli di calcolo e programmi specifici fanno da soli metà del lavoro.

 

2. Open data significa anche open data journalism
Oggi i numeri e le statistiche non sono più riservate a pochi ma sono a disposizione di tutti coloro che hanno un foglio di calcolo sul proprio computer, tablet o smartphone. Chiunque può accedere a un database e dargli la forma che preferisce. Per un giornalista è facile sbagliare, ma è altrettanto facile trovare l’aiuto di alcuni gruppi indipendenti (per esempio ProPublica, Wheredoesmymoneygo? e Sunlight Foundation) che si muovono con semplicità nel mondo dei dati.

How paywalls affect social media efforts at 5 news sites | Poynter.

Several news sites have implemented paywalls in the past year, and the trend continues into 2012. The Los Angeles Times launched its paywall on Monday, and Gannett recently announced that all of its papers except for USA Today will be behind a paywall by the end of the year.

As more news sites consider subscription plans, they’ll inevitably face tough questions — not just about how to implement paywalls but about how and whether paywalls will affect their social media goals.

I talked with folks from five different news organizations to find out how they’ve balanced serving subscribers and non-subscribers on social networks. They each have different ideas and strategies, suggesting there’s no one-size-fits-all approach.

The range of approaches

When it comes to social media and paywalls, there are two extremes — making exceptions for people who come to stories via social networking sites, and making no exceptions. And then there are the more nuanced approaches that lie somewhere in between.

The Los Angeles Times isn’t making exceptions for readers who click through to stories from social media. All readers will be given free access to 15 articles per every 30 days — regardless of whether they came to them via social media, search or latimes.com. After that, they’ll be asked to choose from a few different subscription packages.

“Members can click through to an unlimited number of articles” on social networking sites, said Nancy Sullivan, the Los Angeles Times’ vice president for communications. “For non-members, each click-through will count toward the article maximum. Also, if a non-member reader chooses to revisit a story within the 30-day window from their first visit to latimes.com, it will not count towards the limit.”

Why News Companies Can’t Get On Top Of Digital Advertising

Why News Companies Can’t Get On Top Of Digital Advertising | Giornalismo Digitale | Scoop.it

By Jeff Roberts / Feb 14, 2012 - A new study is making the rounds that suggests news companies are flubbing the digital ad game. The study offers fact morsels but also a larger story about the industry. [...]

 

Here are three key findings:

*News sites have a comparatively high rate of in-house ads (they are filling unsold slots with ads touting their own brand)

 

*Few legacy print customers are moving to digital (the client who bought a car ad on page C17 in Sunday’s paper is not also buying an online ad)

 

*The online ads that news companies do sell are not very targeted (the ad content may be the same for a senior or a teenage viewer)
