How Social Networks Are Redefining Journalism

How Social Networks Are Redefining Journalism | Social Media and Journalists | Scoop.it

“... community manager Meghan Peters discussed how social networks are evolving their content strategies, with Jessica Bennett, editorial director at Tumblr, and Daniel Roth, executive editor at LinkedIn.


“Both editors come from traditional journalism backgrounds. Bennett was formerly an editor at Newsweek, and Roth worked at Fortune. Bennett said that Tumblr's traffic is three times that of The New York Times and CNN. There are more than 80 million blogs and 170 million users, more than 50% of whom are under 30.”
