Sindicato dos Jornalistas: “Levantem-se pelo Jornalismo!” | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it

Sem alijar as responsabilidades próprias dos jornalistas, designadamente a reflexão que se impõe sobre se temos sido capazes de compreender as necessidades e expectativas informativas dos cidadãos e de responder-lhes de forma a que não deixem de considerar o nossa missão como indispensável ao seu quotidiano, o SJ apela aos cidadãos, às empresas e às instituições para que encarem os meios de informação e o Jornalismo como decisivos na vida da comunidade e instrumentos indispensáveis ao progresso económico e social, ao enriquecimento cultural e ao bem-estar.

Why We're Shutting Off Our Comments

Why We're Shutting Off Our Comments | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it
Comments can be bad for science. That's why, here at PopularScience.com, we're shutting them off.
It wasn't a decision we made lightly. As the news arm of a 141-year-old science and technology magazine, we are as committed to fostering lively, intellectual debate as we are to spreading the word of science far and wide. The problem is when trolls and spambots overwhelm the former, diminishing our ability to do the latter.

Entendiendo la transmedia storytelling con Carlos Alberto Scolari - Forbes México | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it
Los medios de comunicación se están reconstruyendo, y esto sucede básicamente por dos motivos: porque hay un cambio en los actores sociales, políticos y económicos, y porque existe una transformación tecnológica que trasmuta de una manera profunda las plataformas que conocíamos. Si la sociedad cambia, los medios evolucionan. Se crean nuevos paradigmas comunicativos.

Periscope founder: “Portrait is the future"

Periscope founder: “Portrait is the future" | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it

"Last week in the new CNBC offices by the San Francisco waterfront, a panel was convened to discuss the future of journalism.

(...) the creator of a journalism/PR connection platform put questions to two journalists united by an old media giant’s new media strategy and a young founder whose feted app may – and this was the premise of the proceedings – "disrupt" the three older men’s industry.

“Social video is now where Twitter was seven years ago,” Galant said at the opening of the conversation. “How will journalists use it?”"

Is the media becoming a wire service?

I'm going to make some predictions about the future of the media in this piece, and they come with the disclaimer that predictions always come with: They could be entirely wrong. The media is moving fast, and what looks like an unstoppable trend today might seem like a hilarious detour a year from now. (Remember, for instance, when the iPad launched, and apps were going to save journalism? Lol.)

He was founding editor of the Wall Street Journal’s iPad edition in 2010, back when tablets were still cutting edge. Recently he was named the Journal’s Executive mobile editor, responsible for developing and managing iPad and iPhone apps as well as Android products. A pioneer of all things mobile journalism, Ho is not shy to describe himself as “the world’s most experienced mobile and tablet news app editor.”

When it comes to news variety, Twitter may beat Facebook

When it comes to news variety, Twitter may beat Facebook | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it

"The Pew Research Center on Tuesday released a 14-page report examining how people use Facebook and Twitter to consume and share news. Most of the findings are in line with conventional wisdom regarding social media’s increasing importance among news consumers — one chart, for example, shows that more people are turning to Facebook and Twitter for news — but the report also draws an interesting distinction between the two social networks.

The report, which is based on a survey of more than 2,000 adults by Pew and the Knight Foundation, says that slightly more Twitter users reported seeing a diverse mix of news topics than Facebook users did. "

Why newsrooms should train their communities in verification, news literacy, and eyewitness media. - First Draft News - Medium
Verification Should Be a Partnership With Your Community
If newsrooms want to help stem the spread of misinformation online and get access to better eyewitness media they should embrace community engagement.

Bringing communities into the news process is a powerful way to spread journalistic values, train residents on reporting processes and foster user generated content that is more useful for newsrooms. Newsrooms are well positioned to become participatory journalism laboratories, helping more people navigate, verify and create powerful stories online and via social media."

Negotiating for News

Negotiating for News - Whither news? - Medium

 

"Facebook did not set out to dominate the distribution of news. Neither did news organizations choose to let it. But now we are there, with Facebook providing a sizable and growing share of traffic to news — even before the advent of Instant Articles. Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, Snapchat, Apple—they all present what we used to think of as our news to our readers. And so it is time to have a serious discussion about the principles and business terms at stake in this new era of distributed journalism."

O que jornalistas podem aprender sobre storytelling com projetos do tipo 'Humanos de Nova York'

O que jornalistas podem aprender sobre storytelling com projetos do tipo 'Humanos de Nova York' | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it

"Cinco anos atrás Brandon Stanton criou uma sensação com o projeto "Humanos de Nova York".  Diariamente, ele fotografa nova-iorquinos na rua e cria uma narrativa acompanhada por uma frase a partir dela. A premissa tornou-se tão popular que virou um livro best-seller.

Agora fotógrafos em cidades de todo o mundo --Teerã, Sydney, Mumbai, entre outras -- imitam a abordagem de Stanton para criar suas próprias versões em seus próprios quintais. Há tantas que, sem dúvida, tornou-se um gênero próprio de conteúdo, um pouco diferente do perfil padrão.

Sites e páginas do Facebook do tipo "Humanos de", em muitos aspectos, estão atrás da mesma coisa: celebrar pessoas, permitindo-lhes revelar um pouco sobre si mesmos, o que, então, revela um pouco da cidade em que se encontram e a própria essência da humanidade.

A IJNet entrevistou dois desses fotógrafos sobre como eles abordam seus projetos"

Sharing News on WhatsApp, an International Desk Experiment

Sharing News on WhatsApp, an International Desk Experiment | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it
Users, from literally around the world, judging by their country codes, signed up to receive daily WhatsApp messages on their phone from our Vatican correspondent, Jim Yardley, as he traveled with the pope in Ecuador, Bolivia and Paraguay.

WhatsApp is a messaging service owned by Facebook, typically used to chat with one’s family and friends via a smartphone. This was very different. As part of The Times’s experiment, users received photographs taken by Jim and links to his coverage of the trip. (And after some readers mentioned that they wanted more visuals, we sent additional photographs and a link to one of Jim’s mobile videos, a perk derived from direct dialogue between readers and editors.)

The geography of foreign news on television

"Since the advent of television in the middle of the 20th century, news has been an essential ingredient in TV programming. Often these newscasts are the most heavily viewed programmes, and by and large they are the main source of information for many people. This is particularly true for news from other countries and regions in the world. This immense significance of TV news has made it an important field in communication research. The article presents a new study that is formed from a multinational project. The project investigated foreign TV news in 17 countries from five regions in the world: Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Egypt, Germany, Hong Kong, Israel, Italy, Japan, Poland, Portugal, Singapore, Switzerland, Taiwan and the United States of America. The data of the content analysis in all these countries in 2008 contain over 17,500 news items. The analysis concentrates on ‘news geography’, a term that is used to describe the extent to which the countries of the planet are represented in TV news."

"One morning in March, a dozen Huffington Post staff members gathered around a glass table in Arianna Huffington’s office. They had been summoned to deliver a progress report to Huffington, the site’s president, editor in chief and co-founder, on a new initiative, What’s Working. It was created to help the site cover solutions, rather than focusing only on the world’s problems — or as Huffington explained in an internal memo in January, to ‘‘start a positive contagion by relentlessly telling the stories of people and communities doing amazing things, overcoming great odds and facing real challenges with perseverance, creativity and grace.’’
