How Social Media Changed the Way We Consume News [Infographic]

How Social Media Changed the Way We Consume News [Infographic] | Social Media | Scoop.it

Social media is fast becoming one of the main destinations for news online. An infographic created by the University of Florida Online, explores the evolution of the news industry and the way news is consumed.

In 2012 there were 2.4 billion Internet users, and 1.4 billion of them were using social media. Nearly 50 percent of Internet users surveyed said they regularly or occasionally heard about a breaking story on social media before it broke on mainstream sources. In fact, since 2009, social media buzz has resulted in a 57 percent increase in traffic to news sites.

Now online dominates the news market, with 64.5 percent of people going to official sites like The New York Times to get their news. Surprisingly, nearly 30 percent of people still get their news from the papers, but social media is hot on print’s heels with 27.7 percent of consumers.

Social Media is closing in on print media as consumers choice for news. Online news has exploded, and is probably one of the reasons why Facebook continues to push NEWS in their news feed.

We as consumers seem to be hungry for news as it happens, and Social Media plays a big role in the delivery of content.

Blake Smith's curator insight, February 20, 2014 6:05 PM

Google, Microsoft, and Twitter all do it – the last few years have been an arms race to see who can delve deeper into your life to get you to part with your money. But the founders of WhatsApp, a smartphone messaging service that is wildly popular around the world, proudly declared they would never make their users the product. They built their brand off of this guiding philosophy and used it to differentiate themselves in a crowded market.

"

"The intuitive mind is a sacred gift, the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift." - Albert Einstein

 

We do not need to teach creativity, but rather inspire its daily practice. Somewhere along the way, we simply forgot to honor this innate gift and how to access its power. Our role as educators is to encourage learning experiences that increase the ability to recognize and listen to our inner voice."

What Happens When Students Use Technology Better Than Teachers? - TeachThought | Social Media | Scoop.it

"You know the content, you understand pedagogy, and you can navigate the minefield of diplomacy when dealing with parents, students, administrators, literacy coaches, and the local news station when they want to see the iPads glow on the students faces.

You know how to manage and coddle, inspire and organize, assess and deliver content.

But the technology is different. That part you do okay with, but, truth be told, the students are geniuses with technology. Born hackers. And of course they are, you tell yourself.

They’re digital natives."

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, February 19, 2014 8:12 PM

I think, to some extent, this sometimes overstated. There are students who won''t  listen for a variety of reasons. That has always been the case. I found that most students are willing to learn. I am sitting in a university library with some digital natives. Most of them are here to learn and it shows.

Two key take-aways:


- don't look at content as 100% in-house creation but as a mix: creation, co-creation and curation to which I would add repurposing.

But mobile's potential reach as a marketing tool is of far greater magnitude. By the end of 2014, mobile subscribers will number 7.5 billion, according to Portio Research. With mobile as the increasingly prevalent contact point with customers, it is critical that companies implement comprehensive mobile marketing strategies comprising elements; this includes a dedicated mobile app, events, targeted rewards and loyalty incentives, and customer referrals. 

 

While each of these items alone is a positive step toward customer satisfaction, they integrate to form a result far greater than the individual parts: a personal, trustworthy and effective means of creating and enhancing beneficial relationships. In fact, research firm Latitude has revealed that more than 61 percent of customers think better of brands that offer a positive mobile experience

Social media tools and platforms to help you manage, curate and post are developed at such a furious pace that it is almost impossible to keep up and test each one, all the while operating your business. Implementing a few of the platforms are sure to save you some time and a few headaches. As a business with an online presence, managing your social media is a full time job, not a hobby. It does require goals, strategy, tools, time, and manpower or womanpower. Just creating a few social profiles and a blog page are not enough. You should be actively engaging consistently and frequently to build your following, credibility, community and reputation.

This is an opportunity for librarians to  a good opportunity for librarian to reach more audience

Siri Anderson's curator insight, January 26, 2014 2:20 PM

I find it interesting to note parallels and contrasts between use of social networks in f2f environments and online environments.  In some instances the online version works better for those who flounder in person. In some cases people who love the real world interactions disparage the online ones. But for most of us, there seems to be a parallel in our patterns and style it would seem. Where should children "learn" how to do this, or is that lesson beside the point at this time?
