This year’s Reuters Institute Digital News Report is based on research conducted in 12 countries, surveying over 23,000 people. Key findings include a sharp increase in the use of social media platforms to reach audiences, a surge in the use of mobile for news, a decline in desktop internet and significant growth in video news consumption online.
This week, The Times is celebrating a breakthrough: We recently passed one million digital-only subscribers, giving us far more than any other news organization in the world. We have another 1.1 million print-and-digital subscribers, so that in total, we have more subscribers than at any time in our 164-year history.
How do you know if something you read is true? Why should you care?
We pose these questions this week in honor of News Engagement Day on Oct. 6, and try to answer them with resources from The Times as well as from Edutopia, the Center for News Literacy, TEDEd and the Newseum.
News organizations must treat reader comments with the same level of consideration that they treat their own stories, New York Times community editor Bassey Etim said today speaking on a panel at this year’s Computation + Journalism Symposium at Columbia University.
"An outline of the Global Initiative for Excellence in Journalism Education was presented to the 58th IPDC Bureau in March 2014. It follows from the Potential Centres of Excellence/Reference in Journalism Education in Africa project which was concluded as a special initiative by the 57th IPDC Bureau. The Potential Centresproject was the subject of an internal review. Its findings are available at:http://www.unesco.org/new/fileadmin/MULTIMEDIA/HQ/CI/CI/pdf/review_centres_excellence_rev.pdf.
This present initiative is an outcome of that study – representing a strategic upscaling of work under the Potential Centres project, to provide an internationally recognised framework for implementing UNESCO’s interventions in defining and promoting globally shared excellence in journalism education."
I THOUGHT ABOUT THE art—and craft—of interviewing after seeing Donald Trump’s response to Megyn Kelly last month during the 2016 Republican Presidential debate. Kelly asked him about statements he had made about the physical appearance of some women he didn’t like, and Trump retaliated by fulminating all over the other networks, referring not so obliquely to Kelly’s menstrual cycle.
Los tiempos han cambiado. El periodista ya no puede permitirse no saber de audiencias. O de tecnología. O no echar un vistazo a las redes sociales para descubrir de qué temas hablan los lectores a los que quiere llegar. Sala tras sala, hora tras hora, 250 ponentes de los medios y herramientas digitales más potentes del momento iban lanzando pistas. Durante tres días, la ciudad de Los Ángeles ha acogido el mayor congreso mundial de periodismo on line, el que celebra la ONA (Online News Association), la organización que engloba a los que más saben de esto.
"A maneira como os quatro diários generalistas madrilenos e os quatro barceloneses titulam hoje sobre as eleições de ontem na Catalunha é significativa deste entrelaçamento dos factos e a interpretação destes factos. E, como era previsível, os factos não são vistos do mesmo modo em Madrid e em Barcelona, na imprensa “espanholista” madrilena e em jornais barceloneses com sensibilidades diversas, por vezes até adeptos ferrenhos da independência da atual “comunidade autónoma”.
Não se trata de saber qual deles é mais “objetivo”, mais jornalisticamente independente. Mas sim constatar que, no dia a dia, a prática jornalística traduz sempre uma opinião, uma sensibilidade particular perante os factos. E é até a esta sensibilidade particular do “seu” jornal que os leitores globalmente se identificam…"
"Cuando muestras datos brutos, sin ajustar por población u otra variable, te salen resultados absurdos", explica Alberto Cairo, profesor de infografía y visualización de datos en la Universidad de Miami"Yo acabé la carrera sabiendo cero sobre cómo razonar partiendo de la evidencia científica", dice el experto"Es fácil mentir con estadísticas pero mucho más sin ellas", dice en Pregúntame, un encuentro digital que organizan eldi
Para a maioria das pessoas uma afirmação como esta soa fora de propósito. Afinal ler notícias é um hábito já incorporado à nossa rotina e aparentemente nada mudou a tal ponto que tenhamos que passar por uma re-alfabetização informativa. Mas por incrível que pareça é justamente isto o que muitos começam a descobrir, quando entramos cada vez mais fundo na era da internet.
We can’t seem to stop talking about millennials, that elusive age of young people — roughly mid-teens to early 30s — whose numbers have surpassed the baby boomer generation. Recent research suggests, unsurprisingly, that millennials are not a “monolithic group” when it comes to news consumption habits, but in fact fall into several distinct categories.
In the early ’80s journalist Steven Levy was assigned a story about computer hackers and, just as the world sat poised on the brink of something wild and new, a technological revolution that’s still going strong more than 30 years later, Levy tumbled down the rabbit hole. It’s safe to say that he has never fully emerged. That first Rolling Stone article evolved into a career as a tech journalist and author, affording Levy a privileged perspective on the intersection of journalism and technology.
The future of news, as Levy sees it, is not compromised or threatened by technology. Instead, technology is a new platform for journalism--a springboard for inspiration and an anchor to grant heft and legitimacy to the journalists and readers who crave authenticity.
AMONG ALL OF the seminars being tweeted about last Friday at the Online News Association Conference, there was one that rose to the top. Festooned with the hashtag #newsrevenue, it was a panel on revenue and ethics, called The Revenue Review: Memberships, Advertising, and Events, and attendees were clearly loving it
En “Buenas prácticas en redes sociales para periodistas y medios” ofrecemos tres entrevistas fundamentales para los periodistas interesados en dirigir los cambios en sus redacciones.
Tenemos a Carmela Ríos, autora del libro “Cómo el #15M cambió la información” y ganadora del premio Ortega y Gasset por su cobertura en vivo del nacimiento y evolución del movimiento ciudadano del 15-M en España; a Robert Hernández, uno de los más importantes profesores de periodismo móvil en el mundo y a Bernardo Marín, subdirector del área digital de El País de España. Un encuentro organizado por el Banco Mundial en Lima permitió conocer la estrategia de BBC Mundo y otras experiencias como la de El País y la Nación de Argentina.
Toronto Sun: "...the increasing use of Sun comment boards for anonymous, negative, even malicious personal attacks, albeit by a minority, has led us to conclude our current commenting system is not serving the interests of the majority of our readers."
Veteran reporter Bob Schieffer was recently asked what he thought posed the greatest threat to the future of journalism. His answer, surprisingly, was not the hostage-taking of journalists by ISIS in Syria or the polarizing programming on Fox News or MSNBC, but the death of local journalism.
