The Changing Face of Journalism

The Changing Face of Journalism | Writers' Nook | Scoop.it

...Today, the delivery of news is not so defined. Website, social media and digital platforms have profoundly changed not only how we get our news, but also what news we are getting. The comment section of online news stories are often more popular, or at least more entertaining, than the actual news story. The ability to “like” and “share” news now allows others to instantaneously watch or read what we are following.

 

As the number of online and social media offerings grows, we are sadly seeing the demise of newspapers. In 2011, 152 American newspapers ceased operations. Rapidly declining advertising revenues continue to be the industry’s core problem as the majority of us seek our news online.

The channel will launch a redesigned website (see screenshots here) and install a back-end system that its editorial producers can utilize.

Why Moneyweb is right but Branko is wrong

Why Moneyweb is right but Branko is wrong | Writers' Nook | Scoop.it
Moneyweb is suing Fin24 for plagiarising its work, and Branko Brkic, the founder of Daily Maverick, is rather unhappy with Huffington Post for aggregating content. The former is right, the latter is wrong.

 

...The trick for news aggregators is to curate and adapt the stories that they find elsewhere to suit their own audience. As a commentator on the above story said, “Remixing content is an important part of creating content on the web”. And let’s be very clear about this: the expectation of the aggregator’s audience has to be different to the expectation of the source’s audience. Anything else doesn’t make sense, and is just thinly veiled theft of content....
