Capturing a war crime - and the pressures on front line photographers

Capturing a war crime - and the pressures on front line photographers | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it
“As Yugoslavia crumbled in the early 1990s, photographer Ron Haviv secretly took a picture of a Serb paramilitary soldier kicking a prone Bosnian Muslim civilian. The image became a symbol of outrage, but when the paramilitary leader — the feared Arkan — found out, he promised to drink Haviv’s blood. Ron Haviv shares that experience with Dr. Anthony Feinstein, a world leader on the psychological effects of war on frontline journalists”

Programmatic, premium, CPM rates, Google ...the stuff that flies over the heads of most newsrooms. If you're in a newsroom, do NOT ignore this; treat it as a primer on the discussion of your future. You may not work in those departments, but what might happen here could certainly determine your future.

Flipboard Users Can Now Add Their Own Voice, Opinions And Photos To Their Magazines

Flipboard Users Can Now Add Their Own Voice, Opinions And Photos To Their Magazines | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it
“ Mobile news magazine app Flipboard may be putting on a brave face in the wake of new competition from iOS 9’s forthcoming News app, practically a Flipboard clone.”
Andy Bull's insight:
This makes Flipboard a much better curation platform. from the post: "Before today, Flipboard users could build their own magazines by pulling in articles from a variety of sources in order to offer unique collections focused on a topic of interest. But unlike their glossy counterparts, this aggregated digital content sometimes lacked an editorial voice. Now, that can change as creators will be able to add text, links, images, and more to their magazines."

Instagram aims to be a social media destination for news

Instagram aims to be a social media destination for news | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it

Twitter has a reputation for being the social network where news and current events are at the forefront. After all, journalists make up the largest and most active verified group there.With a pair of updates, Instagram’s developers seem to be looking to challenge that reputation and establish the Facebook-owned photo-sharing platform as a place to go for the news of the day. A blog post on the platform’s blog reads, in part:With more than 70 million photos and videos posted to Instagram every day, wherever something is happening, chances are you can see it here. Whether it’s behind the scenes at the NBA Finals, on the runway with the latest fashion trend at a favorite club with a local band, people are capturing moments large and small on Instagram. But, until now, there’s never been an easy way to find these moments.Instagram has overhauled its “Explore” tab to make it easier for users to find trending people, places, events and hashtags. The blog post states:At the top of the Explore page you will find new curated collections that will be updated regularly, featuring interesting accounts and places, from musicians and extreme athletes to stunning architecture and gorgeous beaches....

Facebook Introduces Authorship to Help Readers Follow Content Creators

Facebook Introduces Authorship to Help Readers Follow Content Creators | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it

Facebook is currently on a mission to win the internet. By ‘win’, I mean get as many people staying on Facebook all the time - always within Facebook’s walls, always viewing Facebook content.

Obviously, this makes logical sense, but the push towards getting publishers to post content direct to Facebook highlights that The Social Network is more proactively seeking to keep audiences with them, rather than have them click-off to other sites.

'Narcissism works really well': Why Time magazine created a site for its interactive stories

'Narcissism works really well': Why Time magazine created a site for its interactive stories | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it
“For better or for worse, news sites’ most popular digital offerings have been interactive games and quizzes. Now Time magazine has created a new home for its interactive stories -- like its quiz to see how much time you wasted on Facebook -- which have been the site’s most popular for the past three years. Not only are they a traffic magnet, they keep people on the site longer (many of Time’s have a reading time of 70 seconds), a metric that’s increasingly interesting to advertisers.”

Taming the firehose of posts on Twitter has long been a challenge (and expensive) for journalists. Project Lightning, if it really gets released, should be a great tool. It responds to big events, so it likely won't help local journalists unless it's something like the Boston Marathon bombing (well, good for Boston media) ... but typically useful for stories with national or international interest.
