This paper presents cross-national research on news readership diversification. We compare written news (print and free newspapers, online and mobile news services) audiences in the 5 most populous and industrialized European countries (Italy, France, Spain, the UK and Germany). Outlining a sociodemographic portrait of these different news users is important in order to understand the changes undergone inside the world of written news. We draw on a telephone survey carried out in 2009, using a representative population sample (N=7,255). The survey considers sociodemographic variables, including a range of social activities and attitudinal variables, television, computer, and mobile phone ownership, and Internet access and use. Findings show a rich, but volatile relationship between written news, audience behaviors, and community participation.

Earlier this month, Bill Grueskin, dean of academic affairs at Columbia Journalism School, wrote a thoughtful argument against the concept of journalists as Swiss Army knives. In his essay for Nieman Journalism Lab, he argued that “one-size-fits-all” journalists trained in a wide variety of digital media skills hurt journalism more than they help it. Asking journalists to do it all, he said, means few of them will do any of it well.
Although I’m sympathetic to his argument, and value the fundamentals of journalism as much as anyone, I think he’s fighting a losing battle.
More persuasive to me is Atlantic Digital editor Bob Cohn’s excellent piece today on the Folio: website, “Hiring in the Digital Age.” In Cohn’s view, the Swiss Army knife journalist is a reality that must be reckoned with, like it or not.
"The winds of technological change are likely to blow apart educational institutes — and journalism training — and by 2020 universities will likely be quite different than they are today, according to a survey of Internet and education experts released today by the Pew Internet & American Life Project and Elon University... This means journalism education will face challenges very similar to the ones faced by the media industry 15 years ago — a disruption in the economic model for schools and a disruption in the content and teaching methods for education."
The answers to these 10 key questions about the state of the journalism trade in the US and the UK reveal where the jobs are, how to get them, what they pay, and the exponential growth of brand journalism
There was a time, 20 years ago, when hypertext fiction had its great shining moment. And then it passed. In its place, we saw the rise of a whole different set of forms, from blogs to social networks and crowd-edited encyclopedias.
Dicen que contar historias es una actividad parecida al arte. Y la literatura es considerada como una de las artes más perfectas porque utiliza las palabras, que son el medio más reconocido para expresar la belleza. La narrativa trata, precisamente, de la manera de contar historias de una manera efectiva, interesante y, sobre todo, emocionante y hermosa. Sin embargo, hoy en día las historias no sólo se cuentan con palabras, sino especialmente con imágenes; y no solo eso, sino con imágenes y sonidos. Así, se ha originado una nueva categoría en las tecnologías de la información y la comunicación, una nueva narrativa.
Print journalism is in serious trouble: Advertising revenue for North American newspapers has fallen to the lowest level in 60 years (when adjusted for inflation and measured in constant 2012 dollars) -- plummeting from a peak of $63.5 billion in 2000 to just $19 billion in 2012. Adding in online revenue improves the picture to $22.4 billion -- but it's less than the $22.5 billion from 1953.
Social networking did not start sometime after the year 2000. People have always been connecting with each other using the tools available to the. In the past few decades, things have changed dramatically.
With more people using the Internet to get things done everyday, it is no surprise that many are using social networking sites to connect with each other. The folks at Online Schools have created an infographic that gives you a crash course on how social networking has evolved in the past few years.
People love to learn by examining visual representations of data. That’s been proven time and time again by the popularity of both infographics and Pinterest. So what if you could make your own infographics? What would you make it of? It’s actually easier than you think… even if you have zero design skills whatsoever.
